Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, December 3, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies with a high of about 58 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Riley's class.

Next week, Ms. J. Isherwood's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Roof-Over-Your-Head Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1818, Illinois achieves full statehood on this day. Though Illinois presented unique challenges to immigrants unaccustomed to the soil and vegetation of the area, it grew to become a bustling and densely populated state.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Some lizards can walk on water.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Do It, Don’t Say It. 

You know that old common wisdom,”Actions speak louder than words”? Well, it’s true. While you can apologize for not doing something until you’re blue in the face, you’ll gain so much more appreciation by another in your life by simply doing it in the first place. Yes, it means you have to work harder to keep on top of things to begin with, but the reward is that people will know you care because you just did it without being asked or reminded to do so.

According to Edith Wharton, American novelist, "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

Can-Do Food Drive
It's that time of year again! It's time for the annual Rock Springs Can-Do Food Drive! The food drive will run from Dec. 9th - Dec. 19th (next Monday). Beginning Monday, bring only non-perishable foods to donate to those in need this season.

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!”
