Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 134 of school on this Wednesday, March 25, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with high of about 84 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Pecan Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1634, The first colonists to Maryland arrive at St. Clement's Island on Maryland's western shore and found the settlement of St. Mary's.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Babies are born far sighted - their eyes start to focus properly between 3 to 6 months of age.

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. Saying, "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 a Greek proverb, "Nature has given us two ears and two eyes but only one tongue, so we should hear and see more than we speak."

Running Team
Canceled for this Friday, March 27th.

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!”
