Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 71 of school on this Tuesday, December 13, 2016. The forecast calls for party cloudy skies today with high of about 67 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. May's. to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mr. Horstman's 5th grade.


Today is...
Ice Cream and Violins Day

On this Day in History
Five ships under the command of Sir Francis Drake left Plymouth, England, to embark on Drake's circumnavigation of the globe. The journey took almost three years.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
The Stegosaurus dinosaur measured up to 30 ft long but had a brain the size of a walnut.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

What is fairness? Most would agree it involves issues of equality, impartiality, proportionality, openness and due process. Essentially fairness implies adherence to a balanced standard of justice without relevance to ones own feelings or inclinations.

According to Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. president, "These men ask for just the same thing, fairness, and fairness only. This, so far as in my power, they, and all others, shall have."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • 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.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, you are to 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!"
