Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 113 of school on this Tuesday, February 24, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with a high of about 70 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Ms. Reynoso's classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
U.S. Olympic Hockey Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1786, Wilhelm Karl Grimm, the younger of the two Brothers Grimm, is born in Hanau, Germany.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Yawn are contagious for chimpanzees, just as they are for humans.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".

When others trust us, they give us greater leeway because they feel we don't need monitoring to assure that we will meet our obligations. They believe in us and hold us in higher esteem. That is satisfying. At the same time, we must constantly live up to the expectations of others and refrain from even small lies or self-serving behavior that can quickly destroy our relationships.

According to Michael Josephson, American ethicist, "How many times do you get to lie before you are a liar?"

MAP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. McDowell. Remember to take your time, read the questions carefully, and do your best.

Running Club
Cancelled this week

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!”
