Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 102 of school on this Wednesday, February 3, 2016. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 66 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Eagleton's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we'll be joined by the Kindergarten class.


Today is...
The Day The Music Died

On this Day in History
On February 3, 1966, the Soviet Union accomplishes the first controlled landing on the moon, when the unmanned spacecraft Lunik 9 touches down on the Ocean of Storms. After its soft landing, the circular capsule opened like a flower, deploying its antennas, and began transmitting photographs and television images back to Earth.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Every zebra's stripe pattern is different.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Refuse to argue and pick your battles. Engaging in a conversation with another person is a choice we make (whether we always do so consciously or not). Make a conscious effort to note when you're entering into an argument, and then just stop. Remember, not every argument is worth engaging in so don't feel like you have to get into an argument just because someone else is asking for one. "Sorry, I cant talk about this right now, lets talk more about this later," or "You're right, I'm wrong, I'm sorry" will put a sudden halt to the argument.

According to The Dalai Lama, Tibetan religious leader, "Our prime purpose in life is to help others. And if you cant help them, at least Don't hurt them."

This week is 4th 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!"
