On this Day in History:
The Judiciary Act of 1789 is passed by Congress and signed by President George Washington, establishing the Supreme Court of the United States as a tribunal made up of six justices who were to serve on the court until death or retirement. That day, President Washington nominated John Jay to preside as chief justice, and John Rutledge, William Cushing, John Blair, Robert Harrison, and James Wilson to be associate justices. On September 26, all six appointments were confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.
Fair people are impartial. They make decisions without favoritism or prejudice. They also honor equity. They correct mistakes, promptly and voluntarily and realize it is improper to take advantage of the weakness or ignorance of others.
According to Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady, civil rights advocate, "It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself."
