Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 27 of school on this Thursday, September 25, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 91 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Sylliaasen's class to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Ms. Peter's class.


Today is...
Math Story Telling Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1789, the first Congress of the United States approves 12 amendments to the U.S. Constitution, and sends them to the states for ratification. The amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, were designed to protect the basic rights of U.S. citizens, guaranteeing the freedom of speech, press, assembly, and exercise of religion; the right to fair legal procedure and to bear arms; and that powers not delegated to the federal government were reserved for the states and the people.

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 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 an 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."

Tonight is Rock Springs Night at Chuck E. Cheese's from 3:00 - 9:00. Come meet Chuck E. for some fun, food, and support your school. Your teacher will give you a sticker to wear to Chuck E. Cheese's tonight. Don't forget to wear it because you will get 10 free tokens!
Did you sell your 3 items for the fundraiser? If so, bring your ticket to the cafeteria BEFORE school to get your squeezie (not sure of that spelling).

Today is a Training Thursday. Our Illuminate Training will begin promptly at 1:30 in room 56. Be sure to bring your fully charged laptop and graded DWAs.

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.
RSU Friday
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. Be sure to show your school spirit by wearing your Rock Spring colors.

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