Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 139 of school on this Wednesday, April 15, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today, with high of about 83 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
World Art Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1912, The RMS Titanic, billed as unsinkable, sinks into the icy waters of the North Atlantic after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The largest known dinosaur skull is longer than a horse's body.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

A good citizen:
  • believes the country is worth keeping strong,
  • understands the importance of citizen involvement in a democracy, and appreciates the impact of a single act and of millions of single acts.
According to Vaclav Havel, President, Czech Republic, "Without commonly shared and widely entrenched moral values and obligations, neither the law nor democratic government will function properly."

5th grade week

CAASPP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. McWilliams, Mrs. Riley, Ms. Isherwood, and Ms. Peters. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 

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!”
