Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 119 of school on this Tuesday, March 1, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 84 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
National Peanut Lovers Day

On this Day in History

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Penguins swim up to 3,100 miles in a year.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think “The Golden Rule”.

People are not things, and everyone has a right to be treated with dignity. We certainly have no ethical duty to hold all people in high esteem, but we should treat everyone with respect, regardless of who they are and what they have done. We have a responsibility to be the best we can be in all situations, even when dealing with unpleasant people.

According to a Jamaican proverb, "When you go to a donkey's house, don't talk about ears."

5th Grade Week

Safety First!
  • The playground swings are off limits and will remain off limits until further notice.
  • 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!"
