Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, February 12, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 77 degrees.


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

Next week, McDowell's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Extraterrestrial Culture Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1809, Abraham Lincoln is born in Hodgenville, Kentucky. Lincoln, one of America's most admired presidents, grew up a member of a poor family in Kentucky and Indiana. He attended school for only one year, but thereafter read on his own in a continual effort to improve his mind. As an adult, he lived in Illinois and performed a variety of jobs including stints as a postmaster, surveyor and shopkeeper, before entering politics. Lincoln became our 16th president in 1861.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
An Octopus has three hearts.

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."

Valentine's Dance
Don't forget that tomorrow is the annual Valentine's Dance here at Rock Springs. The dance will take place from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

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!”
