Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, April 7, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 90 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Riley's class.

After break, Mrs. Berns and Ms. Cluka's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
No Housework Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1776, Navy Captain John Barry, commander of the American warship Lexington, makes the first American naval capture of a British vessel when he takes command of the British warship HMS Edward off the coast of Virginia. The capture of the Edward and its cargo turned Captain Barry into a national hero and boosted the morale of the Continental forces.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
You breathe in 2,000 gallons of air a day.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU! 

Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? If you are then you are demonstrating the Six Pillars of Character.
Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. 

Character is all around us. Your challenge for the week is to find examples of good character outside of our school community and share them with your class.

According to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German poet, novelist, playwright, scientist and philosopher, "You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him."

Smarter Balanced Testing
Testing for 3rd grade continues this week with their Performance Task.

Crazy Hair Day
In celebration of Spring Break, this Friday will be Crazy Hair Day!

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!”
