Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, May 14, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 99 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
National Chicken Dance Day, Also California Day of the Teacher!

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1804, one year after the United States doubled its territory with the Louisiana Purchase, the Lewis and Clark expedition leaves St. Louis, Missouri, on a mission to explore the Northwest from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean.

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?"

MAP Testing:

Kindergarten Orientation

Student Council
We will be having a spirit day each Friday for the remainder of the year. This Friday will be Keep Cool Day! Wear hats and sunglasses to show just how cool Rock Springs students are and also to keep cool in the heat!

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!”
