Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 82 of school on this Tuesday, January 5, 2016. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain, with high of about 62 degrees.


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

Next week we'll be joined by J. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
National Bird Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1933, construction starts on what will become one of America's most famous landmarks: the Golden Gate Bridge. When completed in 1937, the Golden Gate has a 4,200-foot-long suspension span, making it the world's longest suspension bridge. Since opening to the public in May 1937, almost 2 billion vehicles have crossed the bridge, in both the north- and southbound directions.

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 Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think “true blue".

When others trust us, they give us greater leeway because they feel we don’t need monitoring to assure that we’ll meet our obligations. They believe in us and hold us in higher esteem. That’s satisfying. At the same time, we must constantly live up to the expectations of others and refrain from even small lies or self-serving behavior that can quickly destroy our relationships.

According to A.E. Housman, British poet and scholar, "The house of delusions is cheap to build but drafty to live in."
