Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, August 28, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 88 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Plunkett's Class.



Today is...

Race Your Mouse Around the Icons Day!

On this Day in History:

In 1963 On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., the African American civil rights movement reaches its high-water mark when Martin Luther King, Jr., speaks to about 250,000 people attending the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The demonstrators--black and white, poor and rich--came together in the nation's capital to demand voting rights and equal opportunity for African Americans and to appeal for an end to racial segregation and discrimination.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Some species of earthworm can have as many as 10 hearts.

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."

General Announcements:

  • 4th and 5th grade classes will be having a band recruitment assembly at 10:50 in the MPR.
  • This Friday is school picture day.
  • Tonight is Back-to-School Night.

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!”
