Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, February 5, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 62 degrees.


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

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


Happy Birthday

Today is...
National Pancake Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1934, Henry Louis Aaron Jr., the baseball slugger who broke Babe Ruth's legendary record of 714 homers, is born in Mobile, Alabama.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The sound of waves crashing comes mostly from air bubbles.

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."

Cafeteria News
It's Wellness Wednesday! Can you believe that we have passed the half way mark going into the 14th week of our Wellness Wednesday’s celebration of healthy eating? This week we will feature Napa Cabbage to represent the “N”  in our A Through Z Salad Bar.

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!”
