Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 135 of school on this Wednesday, April 6, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of about 82 degrees.


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

Next week we'll be joined by a surprise group class.


Today is...
National Student Athlete Day

On this Day in History
On April 6, 1896, the Olympic Games, a long-lost tradition of ancient Greece, are reborn in Athens 1,500 years after being banned by Roman Emperor Theodosius I. At the opening of the Athens Games, King Georgios I of Greece and a crowd of 60,000 spectators welcomed athletes from 13 nations to the international competition.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
The human brain is 80% water.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Do It, Don't Say It. 

You know that old common wisdom, actions speak louder than words? Well, its true. While you can apologize for not doing something until you're blue in the face, you'll gain so much more appreciation by simply doing it in the first place. Yes, it means you have to work harder to keep on top of things to begin with, but the reward is that people will know you care because you just did it without being asked or reminded to do so.

According to Albert Einstein, German-born physicist, philosopher, "The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm, but because of those who look at it without doing anything."
