Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 119 of school on this Wednesday, March 4, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with high of about 68 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Dietz classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
National Grammar Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1861, Abraham Lincoln becomes the 16th president of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Penguins swim up to 3,100 miles in a year.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".

The Golden Rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you - nicely illustrates the Pillar of respect. Respect prohibits violence, humiliation, manipulation and exploitation. It reflects notions such as civility, courtesy, decency, dignity, autonomy, tolerance and acceptance.

According to Dr. Seuss, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

Hearts for Huntington's
This is the last week to return your hearts and money for the Hearts for Huntington's campaign. We are hopeful to sell 1,000 hearts by Friday.

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!”
