Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 98 of school on this Tuesday, February 7, 2017. The forecast calls for rain with high of about 64 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Eagleton's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mr. Hernandez's class.


Today is...
Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbor's Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1984, while in orbit 170 miles above Earth, Navy Captain Bruce McCandless becomes the first human being to fly untethered in space when he exits the U.S. space shuttle Challenger and maneuvers freely, using a bulky white rocket pack of his own design.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
If you fully stretch your arms out, the fingertip to fingertip length is almost exactly your body height.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about  responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Life is full of choices. Being responsible means being in charge of our choices and, thus, our lives. It means being accountable for what we do and who we are. It also means recognizing that our actions matter and we are morally on the hook for the consequences.

According to American author Bryant H. McGill, "One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say."

Talent Show
The last day to turn in applications is tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 8th. If you have already turned in your application, be sure to practice! If possible, get your music to Mrs. Zacharias before Friday's auditions - on a CD or with a link to YouTube.

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
