Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 67 of school on this Wednesday, December 7, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 64 degrees.

This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. May's.


Today is...
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

On this Day in History
This day in history is known as "A date which will live in infamy". On this day, in an early-morning sneak attack, Japanese warplanes bomb the U.S. naval base at Oahu Island's Pearl Harbor and the United States enters World War II in 1941.

Also on this day in 1787, Delaware becomes the first state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
The Earth Spins so fast that someone standing at the Equator is traveling at about 1,000 miles an hour.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about  responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable. An accountable person is not a victim and doesn’t shift blame or claim credit for the work of others. He considers the likely consequences of his behavior and associations. He recognizes the common complicity in the triumph of evil when nothing is done to stop it. He leads by example.

According to Potter Stewart, American Judge, "Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do."

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!"
