Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 6 of school on this Tuesday, August 26, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 87 degrees.



Today is...
National Dog Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1939, the first televised Major League baseball game is broadcast on station W2XBS, the station that was to become WNBC-TV. Announcer Red Barber called the game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, New York.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A day on the planet Mercury is twice as long as its year. Mercury rotates very slowly but revolves around the Sun in slightly less than 88 days.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
What is the definition of Trustworthiness? 
- Trustworthiness is the ability to be relied on as honest or truthful
What is the definition of Respect?
- Respect is a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements

Today, think of two people that you respect that have proven to be trustworthy. Thank them for showing good Pillars of Character.

According to Thomas Edison, American inventor, "What a mans mind can create, mans character can control."

Ice Cream Sales:
Ice cream sales are back! Beginning this Friday, ice cream will be sold on Fridays for $1.  Students that want to purchase an ice cream need to line up at the lunch lines.

Tech Tuesday in room 56 at 2:30 today. Come and learn some projector tips and tricks.

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!”
