Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 144 of school on this Wednesday, April 22, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today, with high of about 72 degrees.


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


Today is...
Earth Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1889, The Oklahoma land rush begins. At precisely high noon, thousands of would-be settlers make a mad dash into the newly opened Oklahoma Territory to claim cheap land.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Crocodiles sometimes walk on the backs of hippos.

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

Today I would like for you to look for good character in literature. Take a look at the book or the story that you are currently reading. What Pillars of Character to you see being demonstrated by the characters in the story? Discuss some of these with your classmates.

According to Henry Ward Beecher, American preacher, "Happiness is not the end of life: character is."

Wellness Wednesday
As we head into the 23rd week of our Wellness Wednesday Celebration, your cafeteria will feature Water Chestnuts to represent the letter "W" in out A to Z Salad Bar. Water chestnuts are a good source of potassium and fiber. They are low in sodium, and fat is virtually non-existent. For Earth Day, they will also be offering Tomato seed to plant (not to eat).

5th grade week. 
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

CAASPP Testing
Testing today is Mr. Hernandez, Mr. Horstman, and Mrs. Heiland. 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!"
