Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, September 19, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 79 degrees.

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


Next week, Mr. Horstman's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

Aaargh! Today be Talk Like A Pirate Day!

On this Day in History:

On September 19, 1988, just one day after sustaining a head injury in a frightening accident, American diver Greg Louganis wins gold in the springboard competition at the Summer Olympics, in Seoul, South Korea. It was his second consecutive Olympic gold in the event.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

It takes approximately 12 hours for food to entirely digest.

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."

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.

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