Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, March 5, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 72 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Unique Names Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1963, the Hula-Hoop, a hip-swiveling toy that became a huge fad across America when it was first marketed by Wham-O in 1958, is patented by the company's co-founder, Arthur "Spud" Melin. An estimated 25 million Hula-Hoops were sold in its first four months of production alone.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A fish never closes its eyes.

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 Confucius (K'ung Fu-tzu), Chinese sage, "Respect yourself and others will respect you."
Read Across America
This week is Read Across America Week! In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday,  we will be celebrating all week with reading events.
  • Monday - Dr. Seuss Word Day:  Make up your own Dr. Seuss-like word and the definition.  Write it down, give to Mr. Lake and he will share some on the morning announcements.
  • Tuesday – Share a Book Day:  Bring one of your favorite books to school to share with someone. It’s not for keeps, just for the day.
  • Wednesday - Guest Readers:  Guest readers from the community will be coming in to read Dr. Seuss books to classes. RoseAnn will contact you to schedule a time.
  • Thursday - Green Day & Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast:  Everyone wears green to school! The cafeteria will also be serving Green Eggs and Ham for breakfast. Teachers are invited (but not required) to join the students for breakfast.
  • Friday - Cat in the Hat Day:  Teachers and kids make and wear Cat in the Hat hats.

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!”
