Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 82 of school on this Wednesday, January 7, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 81 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Werner's class to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. Berns class.


Today is...
I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1789, America's first presidential election is held. Voters cast ballots to choose state electors; only white men who owned property were allowed to vote. As expected, George Washington won the election and was sworn into office on April 30, 1789.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
It takes 8 minutes and 19 seconds for light to travel from the sun to 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 Vaclav Havel, Czech poet and political activist, first president of post-Communist Republic, "Lying can never save us from another lie."

MAP Testing
Begins next week. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best. Teachers, this would be a good time to review expectations and testing techniques.

Teacher Update:

  • Staff Meeting this tomorrow
  • Leadership Team meeting next Monday

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!”
