Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 40 of school on this Wednesday, October 19, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 95 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Baier's class.


Today is...
Evaluate Your Life Day

On this Day in History

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
Today, let's encourage a culture of kindness by setting aside time today to recognize one another for exhibiting good character throughout the day.

According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, philosopher and poet, "The force of character is cumulative."

  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
