Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, March 19, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 73 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Chocolate Caramel Day

On this Day in History:
On this night in 1953, for the first time, audiences are able to sit in their living rooms and watch as the movie worlds most prestigious honors, the Academy Awards, are given out at the RKO Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Skunks have stripped skin under their fur.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

A fair person thoroughly employs open and impartial processes for gathering and evaluating information necessary to make decisions. Fair people do not wait for the truth to come to them; they seek out relevant information and conflicting perspectives before making important judgments."

According to Potter Stewart, Supreme Court Justice, "Fairness is what justice really is."

Wellness Wednesday
We will feature Sun dried Tomatoes & Sugar Snaps Peas to represent the "S" in our A to Z Salad Bar. 
Sugar snap peas are high in dietary fiber. There are 2.6 grams of fiber in a 1/2 cup of snap peas. 
Sun dried Tomatoes are high in fiber & vitamin C. In a cup of serving of Sun dried tomatoes you will get 27 % of the recommended daily allowance for fiber & 35% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C.

Smarter Balanced Testing
The California Department of Education has postponed Smarter Balanced until next week.

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!”
