Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 31 of school on this Wednesday, October 1, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 84 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Ms. Peters class to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Mr. Hernandez's class.


Today is...
Fire Pup Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1890, an act of Congress creates Yosemite National Park, home of such natural wonders as Half Dome and the giant sequoia trees. Environmental trailblazer John Muir (1838-1914) and his colleagues campaigned for the congressional action, which was signed into law by President Benjamin Harrison and paved the way for generations of hikers, campers and nature lovers, along with countless "Don't Feed the Bears" signs.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
If a person or an animal is born colorblind, they instantly have excellent night vision.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Refuse to Argue and Pick Your Battles. Engaging in a conversation with another person is a choice we make (whether we always do so consciously or not). Make a conscious effort to note when youre entering into an argument, and then just stop. Remember, not every argument is worth engaging in so don't feel like you have to get into an argument just because someone else is asking for one. "Sorry, I can't talk about this right now," "Let's talk more about this later," or "You're right, I'm wrong, I'm sorry" will put a sudden halt to the argument.

According to Elbert Hubbard, American entrepreneur and philosopher, "Men are only great as they are kind."

MAP Testing
MAP Testing continues today with Mrs. McDowell and Mrs. McWilliams in the computer lab, and Mrs. Werner and Mrs. Laquindanum with the Mobile Lab.

Don't forget to bring your tickets for selling 3 items on Thursday before school in the Cafeteria to get your squish-able.

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!”
