Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 107 of school on this Wednesday, February 10, 2016. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 91 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Plimsoll Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1996, in the first game of a six-game match, an IBM computer dubbed Deep Blue becomes the first machine to beat a reigning world chess champion, Garry Kasparov. Despite this initial upset victory, man ultimately triumphed over machine as Kasparov goes went on to win the match, 4-2.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Twenty percent of Earth's oxygen is produced by the Amazon forest.

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 Victor Cousin, French philosopher, "You can only govern men by serving them."

This week is 5th grade week in the library.

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!"
