Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 7 of school on this Wednesday, August 27, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 92 degrees.



Today is...
National Pot de Crème Day (Poh-deh-krem)

On this Day in History:
In 1908, future President Lyndon Baines Johnson is born on a farm near Stonewall, Texas. The brash, outspoken Johnson grew up in an impoverished rural area and worked his way through a teachers' training college before entering politics.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Dolphins only "sleep"" half awake - keeping one eye open while consciously breathing and floating on surface."

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
What is the definition of Responsibility? 
- the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone
What is the definition of Fairness?
- in accordance with the rules or standards

Today, think of two people that are Fair and have shown Responsibility. Thank them for showing good Pillars of Character.

According to Baron Thomas Babington Macauley, English historian and statesman, "The measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out."

Ice Cream Sales:
Ice cream sales are back! Beginning this Friday, ice cream will be sold on Fridays for $1.  Students that want to purchase an ice cream need to line up at the lunch lines.

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!”
