Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 114 of school on this Wednesday, February 25, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today, with a high of about 71 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
National Chocolate-Covered Peanuts Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1870, Hiram Rhoades Revels, a Republican from Natchez, Mississippi, is sworn into the U.S. Senate, becoming the first African American ever to sit in Congress.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
There are more living organisms on the skin of a single human being than there are human beings on the surface of the earth.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".

Honesty and Integrity are both qualities of someone that has Trustworthiness. Being honest means being truthful and sincere. A person of integrity is undivided and complete.

According to Mark Twain, American writer, "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."

Running Club
Cancelled 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!”
