Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, January 8, 2013. The forecast calls for a mostly sunny skies with a  high of around 69 degrees.


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


Next week we will be joined by Mr. Hernandez's fifth grade for the pledge.

January 8th is officially, "Show and Tell at Work Day".

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1790, President George Washington delivers the first State of the Union address to the assembled Congress in New York City.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The longest living cells in the body are brain cells which can live an entire lifetime.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, the sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple:
Citizenship includes civic virtues and duties that prescribe how we ought to behave as part of a community. The good citizen knows the laws and obeys them, yes, but that’s not all. What other good Citizen traits can you think of?
According to Barbara Jordan, American congresswoman and professor, "What the people want is very simple. They want an America as good as its promise."

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