Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 68 of school on this Wednesday, December 3, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain today with a high of about 62 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Boyne's classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Heiland's class.


Today is...
National Roof-Over-Your-Head Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1818, Illinois achieves full statehood on this day. Though Illinois presented unique challenges to immigrants unaccustomed to the soil and vegetation of the area, it grew to become a bustling and densely populated state.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The deepest location on Earth is Mariana Trench, about 7 miles deep in the North Pacific ocean.

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."

It's 4th grade week.

Can-Do Food Drive
The annual Rock Springs Can-Do food drive is coming. The food drive will run from December 8th-December 18th. Our goal is 1,000 cans!

Winter Wonderland
This Thursday, Dec. 4 from 5:00-7:00.

Pajama Drive
On-Track is working to collect new Pajamas to help kids in need. Donate NEW pajamas in room 61.

Talent Show
It's time to start thinking about the Talent Show. Applications to audition will be handed out next week.  If you plan to try out, practice and rehearse every day before auditions.  If you want to do something with a friend, you must have time after school to practice together.

Leadership meeting today at 2:30 in the Library.

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!”
