Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, May 7, 2013. The forecast calls for chance of rain showers with a high of around 64 degrees.


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


Next week we will be joined by Ms. S. Isherwood's class for the pledge.

Today is...

Officially Accountant's Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1789, President George Washington attends a ball in his honor. The event provided a model for the first official inaugural ball, held to celebrate James Madison's ascension to the office ten years later, which then became an annual tradition.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Crocodiles sometimes walk on the backs of hippos.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. Think about being responsible for a 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.
According to Henri F. Amiel, Swiss writer, “Our duty is to be useful, not according to our desires but according to our powers.”

CST testing continues today. Please remember to be quiet around campus this morning and show respect for our testers. Take a deep breath, relax, and show what you know!

Teachers, also remember that all electronic devices must be off during testing. This includes classroom computers, teacher laptops, iPods, and cell phones. Also, students that arrive after 8:30 will not come to your classroom until after testing is complete. They will go to the library.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
