Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 74 of school on this Wednesday, December 9, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 81 degrees.


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


Today is...
National Pastry Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1835, Inspired by the spirited leadership of Benjamin Rush Milam, the newly created Texan Army takes possession of the city of San Antonio, an important victory for the Republic of Texas in its war for independence from Mexico.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Some frogs survive the winter by freezing almost solid.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

A good citizen believes the country is worth keeping strong, understands the importance of citizen involvement in a democracy, and appreciates the impact of a single act and of millions of single acts.

According to Adlai Stevenson II, politician, U.S. presidential candidate, "Politeness is the art of choosing among ones real thoughts."

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!"
