Good morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, October 16, 2012. It's going to be warm this week. The forecast is calling mostly sunny skies and a with a high of 88 degrees.

Pledge:

This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from _________________ class to lead us with the pledge. 

Announcements:

October 16 is officially, "National Bosses Day". Today is the day that employees recognize their great boss. For us, that would be Mrs. Frank!

On this Day in History:

On this day in in 1758, Noah Webster, Jr., was born. If his name sounds familiar, it should, his name became synonymous with "dictionary," especially the modern Merriam-Webster dictionary that was first published in 1828 as An American Dictionary of the English Language.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The sky is blue because when sunlight collides with our atmosphere, colours of the shortest wavelengths (violet and blue) are scattered - and our eyes are more sensitive to see blue.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The word of the week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange:
Fair people do not wait for the truth to come to them; they seek out relevant information and conflicting perspectives before making important judgments. 
According to a German proverb, "To blame is easy; to do it better is difficult."

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
