Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, March 25, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy to partly cloudy skies with a high of about 66 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's classes.

Next week, Mrs. Goulart's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Pecan Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1634, The first colonists to Maryland arrive at St. Clement's Island on Maryland's western shore and found the settlement of St. Mary's.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The fungus Cordyceps is able to "mind-control" other insects like ants to climb plants and attach there to become its food.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Do It, Don't Say It.

You know that old common wisdom, actions speak louder than words? Well, its true. While you can apologize for not doing something until you're blue in the face, you'll gain so much more appreciation by simply doing it in the first place. Yes, it means you have to work harder to keep on top of things to begin with, but the reward is that people will know you care because you just did it without being asked or reminded to do so.

According to Albert Einstein, German-born physicist, philosopher, "The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm, but because of those who look at it without doing anything."

Smarter Balanced Testing
Smarter Balanced Testing begins today!

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!”
