Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Tuesday, September 4, 2012. The forecast calls for a high of 91 degrees today.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Zacharias's first grade class to lead us with the pledge. 


On this Day in History:

On this day in 1886, Apache chief Geronimo surrenders to U.S. government troops. For 30 years, the mighty Native American warrior had battled to protect his tribe's homeland; however, by 1886 the Apaches were exhausted and hopelessly outnumbered. General Nelson Miles accepted Geronimo's surrender, making him the last Indian warrior to formally give in to U.S. forces and signaling the end of the Indian Wars in the Southwest.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The human body contains about 6,000 miles of blood vessels.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Day is Fairness: Play by the rules • Take turns and share • Be open-minded; listen to others • Don’t take advantage of others • Don’t blame others carelessly • Treat all people fairly.
According to Eleanor Roosevelt, former First Lady, civil rights advocate, "It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
