Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 154 of school on this Wednesday, May 6, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies today, with high of about 66 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Plunkett to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
No Diet Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs an executive order creating the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The WPA was just one of many Great Depression relief programs created under the auspices of the Emergency Relief Appropriations Act, which Roosevelt had signed the month before. The WPA, the Public Works Administration (PWA) and other federal assistance programs put unemployed Americans to work in return for temporary financial assistance. Out of the 10 million jobless men in the United States in 1935, 3 million were helped by WPA jobs alone.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
There was once a lake the size of England in the Sahara.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".

The Golden Rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you - nicely illustrates the Pillar of respect. Respect prohibits violence, humiliation, manipulation and exploitation. It reflects notions such as civility, courtesy, decency, dignity, autonomy, tolerance and acceptance.

According to an African-American proverb, "The price of your hat isn't the measure of your brain."

Split schedule this week (teachers see your email/Bucket) due to the book fair.
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

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

Thursday = Staff Meeting

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!"
