Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, January 15, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 85 degrees.


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

Next week, Roberts/Martinez class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Dress Up Your Pet Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1929, Martin Luther King Jr. is born in Atlanta, Georgia. King received a doctorate degree in theology and in 1955 helped organized the first major protest of the African-American civil rights movement: the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott. Influenced by Mohandas Gandhi, he advocated civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance to segregation in the South. The peaceful protests he led throughout the American South were often met with violence, but King and his followers persisted, and the movement gained momentum.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Certain sharks walk on their fins underwater.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".

The Golden Rule — do unto others as you would have them do unto you — nicely illustrates the Pillar of respect. Respect prohibits violence, humiliation, manipulation and exploitation. It reflects notions such as civility, courtesy, decency, dignity, autonomy, tolerance and acceptance.

According to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, French philosopher, "Nature never deceives us; it is always we who deceive ourselves."

Talent Show
The Talent Show is coming to Rock Springs! Auditions will be on Tuesday, January 21st, not the 20th as originally announced.  If you would like to participate, you must fill out an application, have your parents sign it, and turn it in to Mrs. Zacharias or Miss Reynoso by Thursday, January 16th. That's next week! And don't forget to practice, practice, practice.

Cafeteria News:
In the 11th week of our Wellness Wednesday’s celebration of healthy eating, we will feature Kale and Kumquats to represent the “K”  in our A Through Z Salad Bar.

Kale is a dark green leafy vegetable that is considered a Super Food because it has 1,328% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of Vitamin K in a 1 cup serving. Vitamin K helps build the density of your bones so that you are strong enough to play basketball or participate in gymnastics.

Kumquats are a fruit that looks like a small orange. It is the only citrus fruit that can be eaten skin and all. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C. So, if you eat a ½ cup of Kumquats you will get 73% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of Vitamin C which will help you not get sick and then you won’t  miss school!

So, Please come join us in the cafeteria on Wednesday January 15th for some delicious and nutritious Kale Salad and sweet juicy Kumquats

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!”
