Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, September 17, 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. Werner's Class.


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


Today is...

Constitution Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1787, the Constitution of the United States of America is signed by 38 of 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Supporters of the document waged a hard-won battle to win ratification by the necessary nine out of 13 U.S. states. Today marks the 224th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution. Its first three words, "We the People", affirm that the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Honeybees have remained unchanged in form or structure for 20 million years.

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!

  • 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!”
