Good Morning Rock Springs School!


Today is day 69 of school on this Wednesday, December 2, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 79 degrees.

Pledge:


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Laquindanum's class for the pledge.

Announcements:


Today is...
National Mutt Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1823, during his annual address to Congress, President James Monroe proclaims a new U.S. foreign policy initiative that becomes known as the "Monroe Doctrine." Primarily the work of Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, the Monroe Doctrine forbade European interference in the American hemisphere but also asserted U.S. neutrality in regard to future European conflicts.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Some lizards can walk on 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.

Refuse to argue and pick your battles. Engaging in a conversation with another person is a choice we make (whether we always do so consciously or not). Make a conscious effort to note when you're entering into an argument, and then just stop. Remember, not every argument is worth engaging in, so don't feel like you have to get into an argument just because someone else is asking for one. Saying, "Sorry, I can't talk about this right now, let's talk more about this later", or, "You're right, I'm wrong, I'm sorry" will put a sudden halt to the argument.

According to Frank A. Clark, American writer, "Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out."

Safety First!
  • Kadama's are not allowed at school.
  • 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!"
