Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, August 27, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of around 88 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Plunkett's Class.



Today is...

National Pot de Crème Day (Poh-deh-krem)!

On this Day in History:

In 1908, future President Lyndon Baines Johnson is born on a farm near Stonewall, Texas. The brash, outspoken Johnson grew up in an impoverished rural area and worked his way through a teachers' training college before entering politics.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Elephants have been known to remain standing after they die.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

What is the definition of Trustworthiness? 
 - able to be relied on as honest or truthful
What is the definition of Respect?
 - 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 Baron Thomas Babington Macauley, English historian and statesman, "The measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out."

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!”
