Today is...
Humbug Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1606, The Virginia Company loads three ships with settlers and sets sail to establish Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. Also, in 1803, The Louisiana Purchase is completed at a ceremony in New Orleans.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A large woodpecker can peck as fast as 20 times a second and up to 12,000 times a day.

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 another in your life 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 Edith Wharton, American novelist, "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
