Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, October 24, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 70 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Reynoso's Class.


Next week, Mrs. Allison's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

Food Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1861, workers of the Western Union Telegraph Company link the eastern and western telegraph networks of the nation at Salt Lake City, Utah, completing a transcontinental line that for the first time allows instantaneous communication between Washington, D.C., and San Francisco.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Mosquitoes prefer to bite people with smelly feet.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

Having good character means that we believe in a message of anti-bullying.  Today, create your own anti-bullying message to share.

According to Beryl Markham, English adventurer and author, "If a man has any greatness in him, it comes to light, not in one flamboyant hour, but in the ledger of his daily work."

Red Ribbon Week

It's Red Ribbon Week! This is a time to proclaim loud and strong that we are drug free at Rock Springs School! Today's theme is Team Up Against Drugs: Wear sports gear
  • Friday = Follow Your Dreams: Wear your pajamas

Student Council

We had 55 students attend yesterday's informational meeting for Student Council. It's great to see so many students that want to take on a leadership role and help make our school a positive place. Remember that applications are due on Monday and campaign posters are due on Tuesday. 
Teachers; If there are any 4th and 5th grade students that were not able to be at yesterday's meeting, please send them to the office immediately after announcements.

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.
Today's Data Team Collaborations will take place at 1:30 in the MPR. Please bring all your materials, laptop, and be on time.

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