From Mrs. Stump;

Yesterday, our school was ranked 705th in the world-wide summer reading challenge. Today we are ranked at 254!!! (7792 minutes)
 Read on Roadrunners, and be sure to use your reading logs to document the books & times you are reading.


On this day in 1911, in a ceremony presided over by President William Howard Taft, the New York Public Library, the largest marble structure ever constructed in the United States, is dedicated in New York City. Occupying a two-block section of Fifth Avenue between 40th and 42nd Streets, the monumental structure took 14 years to complete at a cost of $9 million. The day after its dedication, the library opened its doors to the public, and some 40,000 citizens passed through to make use of a collection that already consisted of more than a million books.
Today, the New York Public Library is visited and used annually by more than 10 million people, and there are currently well over two million cardholders, more than for any other library system in the nation.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

There are more living organisms on the skin of a single human being than there are human beings on the surface of the earth.

It’s always  the Season of Nonviolence at Rock Springs School

The Word of the Day is Mindfulness
If we just act in each moment, with composure and mindfulness, each minute of our life is a work of art. Be aware of the motivation behind your action, the intention behind your words, and the needs and experiences of other people. By doing so, you are making life more beautiful for others.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
