Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 90 of school on this Tuesday, January 20, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy to sunny skies with a high of about 70 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Zacharias' class.


Today is...
National Disc Jockey Day

On this Day in History:
On January 20, 1945, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the only president to be elected to three terms in office, is inaugurated to his fourth term.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Sperm whales have the heaviest brains on the planet.

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.
  • Do what you are supposed to do 
  • Plan ahead 
  • Persevere: keep on trying! 
  • Always do your best 
  • Use self-control 
  • Be self-disciplined 
  • Think before you act; consider the consequences 
  • Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes 
  • Set a good example for others

According to Calvin Coolidge, 30th U.S. president, "We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once."

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

5th grade week

Teacher Update:
  • Math Institute today and Next Tuesday
  • Grade-Level Collaborations this Thursday
  • School Site Council meeting next Wednesday

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!”
