Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 32 of school on this Thursday, October 2, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 91 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Ms. Peters class to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Mr. Hernandez's class.


Today is...
International Day of Non-violence

On this Day in History:

Chief Justice Earl Warren swears in Thurgood Marshall, the first black justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. As chief counsel for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in the 1940s and '50s, Marshall was the architect and executor of the legal strategy that ended the era of official racial segregation.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A salmon’s sense of smell is thousands of times better than a dog’s.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Sharing is Caring.

It shows you care when you offer someone else the last cookie or ask the other person if theres anything you can get them while youre up. Simple acts of kindness are the ones we so easily overlook in everyday life. Yet they speak volumes to others in our lives.

According to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, French philosopher, "What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?"

MAP Testing:
MAP Testing continues today with Mrs. Sylliaasen and Ms. Peters in the computer lab.

Today is a staff meeting Thursday. We will be meeting in the MPR at 1:30.

Safety First!
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Remember to play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, remember to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until the duty teacher says that you may get up.
  • At the end of the day, your teacher will walk you to your designated exit for parent pick-up. If your ride is not there, you need to wait, stay at the front of the school and wait patiently and quietly for your ride.
RSU Friday:
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. be sure to show your school spirit tomorrow by wearing you Rock Springs colors. We'll see everyone in the Character Counts Quad for morning assembly.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
