Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 41 of school on this Wednesday, October 15, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with a high of about 77 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Ms. J. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
National Grouch Day

On this Day in History:

Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev wins the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in ending Cold War tensions. Since coming to power in 1988, Gorbachev had undertaken to concentrate more effort and funds on his domestic reform plans by going to extraordinary lengths to reach foreign policy understandings with the noncommunist world.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Octopuses have three hearts.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU!

Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? Remember that TRRFCC students demonstrate Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. RSU students uphold the Six Pillars of Character everyday.

According to Booker T. Washington, American educator, "Character is power."

MAP Testing:
Will wrap-up today with Mrs. McDowell.

Parent Conferences:
It's Parent Conference week. Students, there will not be any school tomorrow and Friday as your teachers will be meeting with your parents.

If you have any overdue books, please get them turned back in to the library. We have many other student that would like to enjoy them.

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!”
