Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 96 of school on this Tuesday, January 26, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 77 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Mallinger's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we'll be joined by Mrs. Eagleton's class.


Today is...
National Peanut Brittle Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1837, Michigan was admitted into the Union as the 26th state. The name Michigan is the French form of the Ojibwa word mishigamaa, meaning "large water" or "large lake".

Here’s a random Science Facts for today

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

Fair people are impartial. They make decisions without favoritism or prejudice. They also honor equity. They correct mistakes promptly and voluntarily, and realize it is improper to take advantage of the weakness or ignorance of others.

According to Knute Rockne, American football player and coach, "Win or lose, do it fairly."

This week is 5th grade week in the library.

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
