Good Morning Rock Springs School!


Today is Tuesday, January 7, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 72 degrees.

Pledge: 

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

Next week, Mrs. Mallinger's class will be leading us in the pledge.

Announcements:

Today is...
I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1789, America's first presidential election is held. Voters cast ballots to choose state electors; only white men who owned property were allowed to vote. As expected, George Washington won the election and was sworn into office on April 30, 1789.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A flamingo can eat only when its head is upside down.

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 Stephanie Ericsson, American writer, "When somebody lies, somebody loses."

Talent Show

Today your teachers have Talent Show flyers and applications. 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.

Student Council

Officers, please come to the office for a short meeting at recess today.

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!”
