Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, April 9, 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...
National Cherish An Antique Day

On this Day in History:
On April 9, 1865, At Appomattox, Virginia, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrenders his 28,000 troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant, effectively ending the American Civil War.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The smallest bone in the human body is shorter than a grain of rice.

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."

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

Ice Cream Sales
The procedure for Friday ice cream sales has changed. Ice cream will now be sold at the entrance door to the cafeteria. To buy ice cream, you must stand in the lunch line. Remember to be quiet and patient. 

Wellness Wednesday
As we head into the 22nd week of our Wellness Wednesday Celebration, we will feature Very Sweet Mini Peppers to represent the “V” in our A Through Z Salad Bar.

Very Sweet Mini Peppers are a type of pepper that comes in different colors. They come in yellow, red and orange varieties. Very Sweet Mini Peppers are low in calories and super high in Vitamin C. In a 1 cup serving of Very Sweet Mini Peppers, there are only 27 calories and a whopping 306 Percent of the Daily Recommended Value of Vitamin C that a person who wants to eat healthy needs to eat to maintain a healthy immune system. The Very Sweet Mini Peppers have minimal seeds and are sweeter and milder than most varieties. In other words, they beg for you to pull out the ranch and start dipping. 

So, come join us in the cafeteria on Wednesday, April 9th to try some Very Sweet Mini Peppers.

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!”
