Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 109 of school on this Wednesday, February 18, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today, with a high of about 75 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Ms. Reynoso's class.


Today is...
Pluto Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1884, the first portion, or fascicle, of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), considered the most comprehensive and accurate dictionary of the English language, is published. Today, the OED is the definitive authority on the meaning, pronunciation and history of over half a million words, past and present.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The Earth's temperature rises slightly during a full moon.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU! 

Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? If you are then you are demonstrating the Six Pillars of Character.
Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. 

According to Thomas Carlyle, Scottish historian and author, "Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct."

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

The Library is closed this week.

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!”
