Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, January 15, 2013. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of around 55 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mr. Hernandez and Mr. Plunkett's class to lead us with the pledge. 


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Reynoso's class for the pledge.

January 15th is officially, "National Strawberry Ice Cream Day".

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1929, Martin Luther King Jr. is born in Atlanta, Georgia. King received a doctorate degree in theology and in 1955 helped organized the first major protest of the African-American civil rights movement: the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott. Influenced by Mohandas Gandhi, he advocated civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance to segregation in the South. The peaceful protests he led throughout the American South were often met with violence, but King and his followers persisted, and the movement gained momentum.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Elephants are the only land animal that can't jump.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, the first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue:
Trustworthiness is a moral value considered to be a virtue. A trustworthy person is someone in whom you can place your trust and rest assured that the trust will not be betrayed. A person can prove their trustworthiness by fulfilling an assigned responsibility.
When you think of Trustworthiness, think of being "True Blue".
According to philosopher Eugene L'Hote, "Honesty is not a policy, it is a state of mind."

MAP testing has begun. Our first group of students did an outstanding job yesterday. Be sure to do your best and show a lot of growth!

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
