Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, May 13, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 97 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Frog Jumping Day

On this Day in History:
Some 100 English colonists arrive along the west bank of the James River in Virginia to found Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in North America. Dispatched from England by the London Company, the colonists had sailed across the Atlantic aboard the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery.

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."

MAP Testing:

Science Testing

Student Council
We will be having a spirit day each Friday for the remainder of the year. This Friday will be Keep Cool Day! Wear hats and sunglasses to show just how cool Rock Springs students are and also to keep cool in the heat!

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!”
