Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, June 11, 2013. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of around 78 degrees.



Today is...

Officially Corn on the Cob Day.

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1776, the Continental Congress selects Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, Roger Sherman of Connecticut and Robert R. Livingston of New York to draft a declaration of independence.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

There are more pets in Japan than children.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU! Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? If you are, then you are demonstrating the Six Pillars of Character.
Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. 

All year we've been talking about the Pillars of Character. During our last few days of school I challenge you to do something each day that demonstrates the Pillar of the Day. The Pillar for today is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

According to Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father and third U.S. president, "A nation, as a society, forms a moral person, and every member of it is personally responsible for his society."
