Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 158 of school on this Tuesday, May 12, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, with high of about 73 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Dias's Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Limerick Day , and National Doodle Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt's trip to San Francisco is captured on moving-picture film, making him the first president to have an official activity recorded in that medium.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A baby humpback whale drinks up to 130 gallons of milk each day.

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 Joan Didion, writer, "The willingness to accept responsibility for ones own life is the source from which self-respect springs."

Don't forget about the All for Books fundraiser. Scholastic will be matching all donations.

MAP testing today: Mrs. Sylliaasen, Mr. Hernandez and Ms. J. Isherwood.

Open House
This Wednesday, 5:30pm - 7:00pm

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!"
