Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU!

This week's challenge is to find examples of good character outside of our school. How many examples were you able to find yesterday? Share some of these examples with your class today.

According to Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens), American humorist, author and journalist, "To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned mans character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours."

  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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.
