Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 15 of school on this Tuesday, September 9, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 88 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Laquindanum's class to lead us in the pledge.


Today is...
Wonderful Weirdoes Day

On this Day in History:
Though it had only been a part of the United States for less than two years, California becomes the 31st state in the union (without ever even having been a territory) on this day in 1850.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Some species of earthworm can have as many as 10 hearts.

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 honour is my life; both grow in one; Take honour from me, and my life is done.”

MAP Testing
Please remember to use quiet voices around the computer lab. Also, be sure to not walk through the computer lab during testing times. Teachers; please bring your class on time and give a courtesy call to the next teacher when you are finished testing. Check the Bucket for the schedule.
Testing today is Mr. Horstman and Ms. J. Isherwood.

Picture Day Tomorrow

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!”
