Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 100 of school on this Tuesday, February 3, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of about 77 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Baier's class.


Today is...
The Day The Music Died

On this Day in History:
On February 3, 1966, the Soviet Union accomplishes the first controlled landing on the moon, when the unmanned spacecraft Lunik 9 touches down on the Ocean of Storms. After its soft landing, the circular capsule opened like a flower, deploying its antennas, and began transmitting photographs and television images back to Earth.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Dirty snow melts faster than clean snow.

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, its 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 a Hebrew proverb, "The kind man feeds his cat before sitting down to dinner."

MAP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. McDowell, Mrs. Baiers, and Mrs. McWilliams. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

5th grade week

Teacher Update:
Thursday 2/5 = Staff Meeting

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!”
