Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 29 of school on this Tuesday, October 4, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 77 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Sylliaasen's 2nd grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. Reynoso's first grade.


Today is...
Ten-Four Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1927, sculpting begins on the face of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills National Forest of South Dakota. It would take another 12 years for the impressive granite images of four of America's most revered and beloved presidents”George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt--to be completed.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
The largest eggs in the world are laid by a shark.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about  responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Life is full of choices. Being responsible means being in charge of our choices and, thus, our lives. It means being accountable for what we do and who we are. It also means recognizing that our actions matter and we are morally on the hook for the consequences.

According to Henri F. Amiel, Swiss writer, “Our duty is to be useful, not according to our desires but according to our powers.”

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!"
