Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 138 of school on this Tuesday, April 14, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today, with high of about 77 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Dictionary Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1865, John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer, fatally shoots President Abraham Lincoln at a play at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Mars is red because its soil is very rusty (iron oxide.)

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

An effective citizen is someone who takes time away from their pursuit of happiness to do things that sustain our freedoms and keep the country safe.

According to Thomas B. Reed, Speaker of the House of Representatives, "There is, and always has been, one tremendous ruler of the human race, and that ruler is that combination of the opinions of all, the leveling up of universal sense which is called public sentiment. That is the ever-present regulator and police of humanity."

5th grade week

CAASPP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. McWilliams, Mrs. Riley, Ms. Isherwood, and Ms. Peters. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 

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!”
