Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, March 18, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 75 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Awkward Moments Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1852, in New York City, Henry Wells and William G. Fargo join with several other investors to launch their namesake business. This was the beginning of The Wells Fargo Company.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Aluminum is the most common metal in the Earth's crust.

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."

Smarter Balanced Testing
The California Department of Education has postponed Smarter Balanced until next week.

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!”
