Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 34 of school on this Tuesday, October 11, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 79 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Reynoso's first grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten.


Today is...
International Day of The Girl

On this Day in History
On this day in in 1968, Apollo 7, the first manned Apollo mission, is launched and conducted an 11-day orbit of Earth, during which the crew transmitted the first live television broadcasts from orbit. Also on this day in 1975, Saturday Night Live made its debut on NBC. I'm Chevy Chase, and you're not.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

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 Arthur Vandenberg, American journalist and senator, “It is less important to redistribute wealth than it is to redistribute opportunity.”

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
