Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 159 of school on this Wednesday, May 13, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies, with high of about 72 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Schmottlach's Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Frog Jumping Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1607, some 100 English colonists arrive along the west bank of the James River in Virginia to found Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in North America. Dispatched from England by the London Company, the colonists had sailed across the Atlantic aboard the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Mantis shrimp can see colors better than humans can.

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 an Arabian proverb, "I am a prince, and you are prince. Who will lead the donkeys?"

Wellness Wednesday
This is the final week of our Wellness Wednesday Celebration. We will be featuring Zucchini to represent the letter Z in our A to Z Salad Bar. Zucchini's have more potassium in them than a banana does! Zucchini's are low in calories and high in Vitamin C.

Don't forget about the All for Books fundraiser. Scholastic will be matching all donations.

MAP Testing
MAP testing today: Mrs. McDowell, Mr. Horstman and Mrs. Heiland.

Open House
Tonight! 5:30pm - 7:00pm

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!"
