Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, November 19, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies with a  high of about 65 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Fridell & Mrs. Schmottlach.

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


Today is...

Rocky and Bullwinkle Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivers what will become one of the most famous speeches in American history, at the dedication of the military cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Using just 272 words, Lincoln articulated the meaning of the Civil War for a public that had grown weary of the conflict.
The speech begins with the now famous words, "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Hot water freezes faster than cold water.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

What is fairness? Most would agree it involves issues of equality, impartiality, proportionality, openness and due process. Essentially fairness implies adherence to a balanced standard of justice without relevance to one’s own feelings or inclinations.

According to Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. president, "These men ask for just the same thing, fairness, and fairness only. This, so far as in my power, they, and all others, shall have."


The Fall Festival has been postponed due to the weather forecast. The new date for the Fall Festival is Thursday, December 12.

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!”
