Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, November 13, 2013. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a  high of about 90 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. Fridell & Mrs. Schmottlach class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...

World Kindness Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial dedicated in Washington after a march to its site by thousands of veterans of the conflict. The long-awaited memorial was a simple V-shaped black-granite wall inscribed with the names of the 57,939 Americans who died in the conflict.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Dolphins and whales are mammals that don't drink water.

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 a Chinese proverb, "It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."

Student Council

Elections are tomorrow!  Teachers, please be sure your students have watched the speeches on the Wiki and filled out their sample ballots today.  Voting will begin with the 20’s building tomorrow at 8:30, then the 30’s, 50’s, and finally at the 40’s.

Candidates, please meet with me this afternoon at 2:00 on the Character Counts Stage.

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!”
