Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, February 25, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 68 degrees.


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

Next week, Ms. Peters class will be leading us in the pledge.


Happy Birthday
Mrs. Dias

Today is...
National Chocolate-Covered Peanuts Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1870, Hiram Rhoades Revels, a Republican from Natchez, Mississippi, is sworn into the U.S. Senate, becoming the first African American ever to sit in Congress.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Penguins swim up to 3,100 miles in a year.

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 well meet our obligations. They believe in us and hold us in higher esteem. Thats 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?"

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!”
