Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 124 of school on this Tuesday, March 8, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, with high of about 67 degrees.


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

Next week we'll be joined by Ms. S. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
Middle Name Pride Day

On this Day in History

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about  responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Life is full of choices. Being responsible means being in charge of our choices and, thus, our lives. It means being accountable for what we do and who we are. It also means recognizing that our actions matter and we are morally on the hook for the consequences.

According to a Japanese proverb, "When you’re thirsty, its too late to think about digging a well."
