Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
What is the definition of Caring? 
 - displaying kindness and concern for others
What is the definition of Citizenship?
 - Citizenship denotes the link between a person and a state

Today, think of two people that are good Citizens and are Caring. Thank them for showing good Pillars of Character.

According to Thomas Carlyle, Scottish historian and author, “Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct.”

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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. Show your RSU pride by wearing RSU colors and we'll see in the Character Counts Quad for Friday 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!"
