Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, March 12, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 75 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. McWilliams class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Girl Scout Birthday Day

On this Day in History:
On March 12, 1930, Indian independence leader Mohandas Gandhi begins a defiant march to the sea in protest of the British monopoly on salt, his boldest act of civil disobedience yet against British rule in India.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
It takes 713 gallons of water to make one cotton T-shirt.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable. An accountable person is not a victim and doesn't shift blame or claim credit for the work of others. He considers the likely consequences of his behavior and associations. He recognizes the common complicity in the triumph of evil when nothing is done to stop it. He leads by example.

According to a Chinese proverb, "Teachers open the door, but you must walk through it yourself."

Wellness Wednesday
As we head in to the 18th week of our Wellness Wednesday Celebration, we will feature Rapini (Ra-P-Nee) and Rutabaga (Root-A-Beg-A) to represent the “R” 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!”
