Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 148 of school on this Tuesday, April 28, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with high of about 89 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Sylliaasen's to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
National Pet Parent's Day

On this Day in History:
U.S. Senator and 5th President James Monroe is born on this day in 1758.
Also on this day in 1788, Maryland becomes our 7th state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Camels chew in a figure-eight motion.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".

When others trust us, they give us greater leeway because they feel we don't need monitoring to assure that well meet our obligations. They believe in us and hold us in higher esteem. That is satisfying. At the same time, we must constantly live up to the expectations of others and refrain from even small lies or self-serving behavior that can quickly destroy our relationships.

According to a Spanish proverb, "He who steals once is always a thief."

4th grade week. 
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

CAASPP Testing
Make-Up testing for grades 3 & 4 today!

Band Concert
Tonight at 6:30 is the band concert for Rock Springs School at the California Center for the Art Escondido.

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!"
