Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 101 of school on this Wednesday, February 4, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of about 77 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Baier's class.


Today is...
World Cancer Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1789, George Washington, the commander of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, is unanimously elected the first president of the United States by all 69 presidential electors who cast their votes.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Frog bones grow new rings as they age, just like a tree!

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 can't talk about this right now, let's 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 can't help them, at least don't hurt them."

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

5th grade week

Teacher Update:
  • Thursday 2/5 = Staff Meeting

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!”
