Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 129 of school on this Tuesday, March 15, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and a high of about 77 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

On this Day in History
On March 14, 1820, as part of the Missouri Compromise between the North and the South, Maine is admitted into the Union as the 23rd state.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
The information stored on an iPod Nano would fill up eight pickup truckloads of paper.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

What is fairness? Most would agree it involves issues of equality, impartiality, proportionality, openness and due process. Essentially fairness implies adherence to a balanced standard of justice without relevance to ones own feelings or inclinations.

According to a Chinese proverb, "Cheat the earth and the earth will cheat you."

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!"
