Good Morning Rock Springs School!


Today is Tuesday, January 14, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 81 degrees.

Pledge: 

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

Next week, Roberts/Martinez class will be leading us in the pledge.

Announcements:

Today is...
Humanitarian Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1639, the first constitution in the American colonies, the "Fundamental Orders," is adopted by representatives of Wethersfield, Windsor, and Hartford.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A cat has about 20 muscles in each ear.

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."

Talent Show
The Talent Show is coming to Rock Springs! Auditions will be on Tuesday, January 21st, not the 20th as originally announced.  If you would like to participate, you must fill out an application, have your parents sign it, and turn it in to Mrs. Zacharias or Miss Reynoso by Thursday, January 16th. That's next week! And don't forget to practice, practice, practice.

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!”
