Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 54 of school on this Wednesday, November 5, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 85 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from our Kindergarten classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell's classes.


Today is...
Guy Fawkes Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1930, Sinclair Lewis is the first American to be awarded the Noble Prize in Literature.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
When you blush, your stomach lining also reddens.

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 William Hazlitt, English essayist and literary critic, "Prejudice is the child of ignorance."


It's 5th grade week!

Leadership meeting today at 2:30 in the Library.

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!”
