Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 105 of school on this Tuesday, February 8, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of about 79 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Plimsoll Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1996, In the first game of a six-game match, an IBM computer dubbed "Deep Blue" becomes the first machine to beat a reigning world chess champion, Garry Kasparov. Despite this initial upset victory, man ultimately triumphed over machine as Kasparov goes went on to win the match, 4-2.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
An alligator may go through 2,000 to 3,000 teeth in a lifetime.

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 Elvis Presley, American rock 'n' roll icon, "Happiness is knowin' you've done a good job, whether it's professional or for another person."

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

4th grade week

Teacher Update:
  • Wednesday 2/11 = Site Council 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!”
