Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, September 24, 2013. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of around 81 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Horstman's Class.


Next week, Mrs. Zacharias's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

Punctuation Day!

On this Day in History:

The Judiciary Act of 1789 is passed by Congress and signed by President George Washington, establishing the Supreme Court of the United States as a tribunal made up of six justices who were to serve on the court until death or retirement.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

If a person or an animal is born colorblind, they instantly have excellent night vision.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

What is fairness? Most would agree it involves issues of equality, impartiality, proportionality, openness and due process. Essentially fairness implies adherence to a balanced standard of justice without relevance to one’s own feelings or inclinations.

According to Arthur Vandenberg, American journalist and senator, "It is less important to redistribute wealth than it is to redistribute opportunity."

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!”
