Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, October 3, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 74 degrees.

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


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


Happy Birthday

A Happy Belated Birthday to Mrs. Fridell. She had her birthday this last Sunday.

Today is...

German Unity Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1895, The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane, is published in book form. The story of a young man's experience of battle was the first American novel to portray the Civil War from the ordinary soldier's point of view. The tale originally appeared as a serial published by a newspaper syndicate.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

A crocodile's tongue is attached to the roof of its mouth.

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 there’s anything you can get them while you’re 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?"

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.

PTA Updates:
Remember to bring all of your fundraiser orders and money to school tomorrow. Everyone has done a terrific job of selling! Join the PTA!

Map Testing Update:

Staff Meeting:

Teachers; there is a staff meeting today in the MPR. Please be sure to bring you laptop - fully charged.

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