What You Think Upon Grows Day

On this Day in History
The South Fork Dam collapses on this day in 1889, causing a flood in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. This event inspired the book, "The Terrible Wave" by Marden Dahlstedt. Also, today is the birthday of poet Walt Whitman, born in West Hills, Long Island, and raised in Brooklyn.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Most spiders have eight eyes.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

An effective citizen is someone who takes time away from their "pursuit of happiness" to do things that sustain our freedoms and keep the country safe.

According to Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), American essayist and poet, "There can be no high civility without a deep morality."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
