Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 153 of school on this Tuesday, May 5, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today, with high of about 67 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Plunkett to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Cinco de Mayo

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1961, From Cape Canaveral, Florida, Navy Commander Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. is launched into space aboard the Freedom 7 space capsule, becoming the first American astronaut to travel into space.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Small icebergs are called growlers and bergy bits.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".

People are not things, and everyone has a right to be treated with dignity. We certainly have no ethical duty to hold all people in high esteem, but we should treat everyone with respect, regardless of who they are and what they have done. We have a responsibility to be the best we can be in all situations, even when dealing with unpleasant people.

According to an African proverb, "It's not what you call me, but what I answer to."

Split schedule this week (teachers see your email/Bucket) due to the book fair.
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

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

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!"
