On this Day in History:
On this day in 1787, The Constitution of the United States of America is signed by 38 of 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Supporters of the document waged a hard-won battle to win ratification by the necessary nine out of 13 U.S. states.
On September 17, 1976, NASA publicly unveils its first space shuttle, the Enterprise, during a ceremony in Palmdale, California. Development of the aircraft-like spacecraft cost almost $10 billion and took nearly a decade. In 1977, the Enterprise became the first space shuttle to fly freely when it was lifted to a height of 25,000 feet by a Boeing 747 airplane and then released, gliding back to Edwards Air Force Base on its own accord.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.
Responsible people are active in the pursuit of excellence. They are diligent and they persevere avoiding excuses.
Responsible people exercise self-control. They realize they are as they choose to be, every day.
According to Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. president, “You can't escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”

Pennies for Pets
Rock Springs raised over $1,000 in coins for animals in need. Everyone here was a big part of making this happen. Every coin made a difference in the lives of an animal who needs medical care, a loving home, or basic food/water to survive.
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. We look forward to seeing everyone 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!
