Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, November 20, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies with a  high of about 64 degrees. Tomorrow is calling for heavy rains, so be prepared!


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Fridell & Mrs. Schmottlach.

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


Today is...

National Peanut Butter Fudge Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1789, New Jersey ratifies the Bill of Rights, becoming the first state to do so. New Jersey's action was a first step toward making the first 10 amendments to the Constitution law and completing the revolutionary reforms begun by the Declaration of Independence.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

A large woodpecker can peck as fast as 20 times a second and up to 12,000 times a day.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

A fair person thoroughly employs open and impartial processes for gathering and evaluating information necessary to make decisions. Fair people do not wait for the truth to come to them; they seek out relevant information and conflicting perspectives before making important judgments.

According to a Dutch proverb, "A person who cheats at play will cheat you any way."


The Fall Festival has been postponed due to the weather forecast. The new date for the Fall Festival is Thursday, December 12.

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!”
