Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, November 5, 2013. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a  high of about 84 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Ms. S. Isherwood's.

Next week, Mrs. Heiland's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

Saxophone Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1860, Abraham Lincoln is elected the 16th president of the United States. For preserving the Union during the Civil War and bringing an end to slavery, and for his unique character and powerful oratory, Lincoln is hailed as one of the greatest American presidents.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The Earth Spins so fast that someone standing at the Equator is traveling at about 1,000 miles an hour.

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".

The Golden Rule — do unto others as you would have them do unto you — nicely illustrates the Pillar of respect. Respect prohibits violence, humiliation, manipulation and exploitation. It reflects notions such as civility, courtesy, decency, dignity, autonomy, tolerance and acceptance.

According to William Hazlitt, English essayist and literary critic, "Prejudice is the child of ignorance."

From the Cafeteria

As we continue with our Wellness Wednesday's our 4th week will feature Daikon Radishes & Dates. to represent  the letter D. Daikon radishes are low in calories & high in vitamin C. Dates are a fruit that are grown on certain palm trees. They are low in fat & good source of fiber. Please join us in the cafeteria for some Daikon Radishes & Dates.

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!”
