Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 58 of school on this Wednesday, November 12, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy skies today with a high of about 70 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. McDowell's classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mr. Horstman's classes.


Happy Birthday
Ms. Ocampo (yesterday)

Today is...
National Young Reader's Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1954, Ellis Island, the gateway to America, shuts it doors after processing more than 12 million immigrants since opening in 1892. Today, an estimated 40 percent of all Americans can trace their roots through Ellis Island, located in New York Harbor off the New Jersey coast and named for merchant Samuel Ellis, who owned the land in the 1770s.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
If humans came in as many sizes as dogs, we'd range from three to eighteen feet tall.

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 Potter Stewart, American Judge, "Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do."

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!”
