Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 86 of school on this Tuesday, January 13, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 70 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Rubber Ducky Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1929, nearly 50 years after the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Wyatt Earp dies quietly in Los Angeles at the age of 80.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Our eyes can distinguish as many as 10 million distinct color variations.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".

People are not things, and everyone has a right to be treated with dignity. We certainly have no ethical duty to hold all people in high esteem, but we should treat everyone with respect, regardless of who they are and what they have done. We have a responsibility to be the best we can be in all situations, even when dealing with unpleasant people.

According to Harry Sheehy, athletic director, "It is your response to winning and losing that makes you a winner or a loser."

MAP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. Goulart, Mr. Hernandez, and Mrs. Heiland's classes. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

4th grade week

Talent Show
Auditions are this Friday after school.  You must have your application turned in by Wednesday to audition. Each person in your group must have an application turned in as well. Have fun with your performance and practice daily!!

Teacher Update:
  • Writing Celebration on Wednesday.
  • Open Thursday

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!”
