Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, October 8, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 72 degrees.

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


Next week, Mr. Hernandez's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

American Tag Day!

On this Day in History:

The first transcontinental air race in the United States begins, with 63 planes competing in the round-trip aerial derby between California and New York. As 15 planes departed the Presidio in San Francisco, California, 48 planes left Roosevelt Field on Long Island, New York.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Octopuses have three hearts.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

An effective citizen is someone who takes time away from their "pursuit of happiness" to do things that sustain our freedoms and keep the country safe.

According to Barbara Jordan, American congresswoman and professor, "What the people want is very simple. They want an America as good as its promise."

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!”
