Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, October 2, 2013. The forecast calls for partly to mostly cloudy in the morning becoming mostly sunny with a high of about 74 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Zacharias's Class.


Next week, Mrs. McWilliams's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

International Day of Non-violence!

On this Day in History:

Chief Justice Earl Warren swears in Thurgood Marshall, the first black justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. As chief counsel for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in the 1940s and '50s, Marshall was the architect and executor of the legal strategy that ended the era of official racial segregation.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

93% of a water melon is water.

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 you’re 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."

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.

“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
