Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 125 of school on this Wednesday, March 9, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 75 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Baier's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we'll be joined by Ms. S. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
Get Over It Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1959, the first Barbie doll goes on display at the American Toy Fair in New York City.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
20/20 vision means the eye can see normally at 20 feet.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable. An accountable person is not a victim and doesn't shift blame or claim credit for the work of others. He considers the likely consequences of his behavior and associations. He recognizes the common complicity in the triumph of evil when nothing is done to stop it. He leads by example.

According to a Chinese proverb, "Teachers open the door, but you must walk through it yourself."

Safety First!

  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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.

  • 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!"
