Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, September 10, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of around 83 degrees.

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


The pledge is open next week. Teachers, please sign-up to send in some students!


Today is...

Swap Ideas Day!

On this Day in History:

English adventurer John Smith is elected council president of Jamestown, Virginia--the first permanent English settlement in North America. Smith, a colorful figure, had won popularity in the colony because of his organizational abilities and effectiveness in dealing with local Native American groups.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The smallest bone in the human body is the stapes or stirrup bone located in the middle ear. It is approximately 0.11 inches long.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think”The Golden Rule".

People are not things, and everyone has a right to be treated with dignity. We certainly have no ethical duty to hold all people in high esteem, but we should treat everyone with respect, regardless of who they are and what they have done. We have a responsibility to be the best we can be in all situations, even when dealing with unpleasant people.

According to William Shakespeare, English dramatist , "Mine honor is my life; both grow in one; Take honor from me, and my life is done."

MAP Testing

Teachers: MAP testing has been delayed. Please check your email today for some updated information about MAP testing and be sure to stay current on any changes to the MAP calendar. 

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!”
