Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, March 26, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy to partly cloudy skies with a chance of rain and a high of about 63 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's classes.

Next week, Mrs. Goulart's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Happy Birthday
Ms. S. Isherwood and Ms. J. Isherwood

Today is...
Make Up Your Own Holiday Day

On this Day in History:
On March 26, 1953, American medical researcher Dr. Jonas Salk announces on a national radio show that he has successfully tested a vaccine against poliomyelitis, the virus that causes the crippling disease of polio.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The world's termites outweigh the world's humans 10 to 1.

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 cant talk about this right now, lets 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."

Wellness Wednesday
We are heading into the 20th week of our Wellness Wednesday Celebration. We will feature Tabbouleh (Ta-Boo-La) to represent the “T” in our A Through Z Salad Bar.

Tabbouleh (Ta-Boo-La) is a salad of Lebanese origin consisting chiefly of cracked wheat, tomatoes, parsley, mint, onions, lemon juice, and olive oil. Tabbouleh (Ta-Boo-La) is low in calories and fat. It is an excellent source of Fiber because of the cracked wheat and high in Vitamin C because of the tomatoes. In a half cup serving, there are 110 calories and only 3 grams of fat. There are 4.6 grams of Fiber which provides 18 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance. You will also receive 37 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance for Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects cells against damage, helps wounds to heal, fights infections and promotes healthy bones.

Trying new things is one of the best parts of life and you will never know if you don’t like something until you try it. So, come join us in the cafeteria on Wednesday, March 26th and let’s get our digestive tract moving with some high Fiber Tabouleh (Ta-Boo-La).

Smarter Balanced Testing
Continues today

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!”
