Good morning Rock Springs School!

Welcome to Wednesday, May 2, 2012. The forecast calls for low clouds, fog and patchy drizzle in the morning then mostly cloudy with a slight chance of light rain.

We are going to have shortened announcements for the next few weeks due to CST and MAP testing. Your teacher will take care of doing the pledge with you in class.



On this day is history, the modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster is born when a sighting makes local news on May 2, 1933. The newspaper Inverness Courier related an account of a local couple who claimed to have seen "an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface." The story of the "monster"  became a media phenomenon, with London newspapers sending correspondents to Scotland and a circus offering a 20,000 pound sterling reward for capture of the beast which was later given the name ‘Nessie’.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The fungus Cordyceps is able to "mind-control" other insects like ants to climb plants and attach there to become its food.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, be sure to do your best on the test and show how smart RSU students are.

And remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
