Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, October 29, 2013. The forecast calls for scattered shower with a high of about 63 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Allison's Class.

Next week, Ms. S. Isherwood's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

National Cat Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1890, an act of Congress creates Yosemite National Park, home of such natural wonders as Half Dome and the giant sequoia trees. Environmental trailblazer John Muir (1838-1914) and his colleagues campaigned for the congressional action, which was signed into law by President Benjamin Harrison and paved the way for generations of hikers, campers and nature lovers, along with countless "Don't Feed the Bears" signs.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

When you blush, your stomach lining also reddens.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".

When others trust us, they give us greater leeway because they feel we don’t need monitoring to assure that we’ll meet our obligations. They believe in us and hold us in higher esteem. That’s satisfying. At the same time, we must constantly live up to the expectations of others and refrain from even small lies or self-serving behavior that can quickly destroy our relationships.

According to Donald T. Regan, American business executive, Treasury Secretary, chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan, "When all else fails, tell the truth."

Student Council

If there any any last minute Student Council Applications, please send them to the office immediately after announcements. Applications will not be accepted after 9:00 this morning. I will be coming to collect posters this morning.


Fire drill is postponed until tomorrow.


This Thursday will be our annual Halloween parade. If you plan to dress, please come to school in costume and be prepared to change immediately following the parade. A note about costumes; costumes need to be appropriate for school. This means no weapons, plastic or otherwise, will be allowed. Also, no blood of any kind. If you have a mask with blood, you need to leave it at home. Teachers will take any item deemed inappropriate.

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!”
