Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 106 of school on this Wednesday, February 11, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of about 84 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mr. Plunkett's class.


Today is...
Be Electrific Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1983, Ronald Reagan as President of the United States proclaimed February 11, 1983 as National Inventors' Day.

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."

Wellness Wednesday
Today is Wellness Wednesday in the cafeteria. They will be serving Orzo pasta for the letter O. Orzo is whole grain pasta , 1 cup serving contains 3 grams of fiber & 12 grams of protein, so join us!

MAP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. Sylliaasen and Ms. Peters. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

4th grade week

Teacher Update:
  • Wednesday 2/11 = Site Council meeting
  • Thursday 2/12 = Grade-Level Collaboration

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!”
