Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 72 of school on this Tuesday, December 9, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and rain today with a high of about 78 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Heiland's class to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. S. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
National Pastry Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1835, Inspired by the spirited leadership of Benjamin Rush Milam, the newly created Texan Army takes possession of the city of San Antonio, an important victory for the Republic of Texas in its war for independence from Mexico.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
You lose up to 100 hairs a day.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

An effective citizen is someone who takes time away from their "pursuit of happiness" to do things that sustain our freedoms and keep the country safe.

According to a Hindu proverb, "Like the body that is made up of different limbs and organs, all moral creatures must depend on each other to exist."

5th grade week.

Talent Show
It's time to start thinking about the Talent Show. Applications to audition are available.  If you plan to try out, practice and rehearse every day before auditions.  If you want to do something with a friend, you must have time after school to practice together. Auditions are Friday, January 16.

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!”
