Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, December 4, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers and a high of about 58 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Riley's class.

Next week, Ms. J. Isherwood's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Cookie Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1783, future President George Washington, then commanding general of the Continental Army, summons his military officers to Fraunces Tavern in New York City to inform them that he will be resigning his commission and returning to civilian life.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Elephants have been known to remain standing after they die.

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.”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."

Can-Do Food Drive
It's that time of year again! It's time for the annual Rock Springs Can-Do Food Drive! The food drive will run from Dec. 9th - Dec. 19th (next Monday). Beginning Monday, bring only non-perishable foods to donate to those in need this season.

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!”
