Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 53 of school on this Tuesday, November 4, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 78 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from our Kindergarten classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell's classes.


Today is...
Use Your Common Sense Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter and his workmen discover a step leading to the tomb of King Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The dead sea is seven times saltier than the ocean.

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 Ann Landers (Esther Pauline Friedman), American newspaper advice columnist, "The true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good."

It's 5th grade week!

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!”
