On this Day in History:
On this day in 1946, William Jefferson Blythe III is born in Hope, Arkansas. His father died in a car accident before he was born, and young Bill later took the last name of his stepfather, Roger Clinton. In 1992, Bill Clinton would be elected as the 42nd president of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Elephants are the only land animal that can't jump.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
Rock Springs is a Six Pillars of Character School! Our pillars are; Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. These are easy to remember because people with good character are terrific. Just use the acronym T R R F C C for terrific. T for Trustworthiness, R for Respect, R for Responsibility, C for Caring, and C for Citizenship. All Rock Springs students and staff are Terrific!

According to Henry Clay, statesman, orator, politician, "Of all the properties which belong to honorable men, not one is so highly prized as that of character."

Safety First!
  • Playground safety is important!
  • 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!”
