Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 43 of school on this Wednesday, October 26, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with high of about 81 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Baier's to lead us with the pledge.

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


Today is...
Make A Difference Day

On this Day in History
The Erie Canal opens, connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean via the Hudson River. Governor DeWitt Clinton of New York, the driving force behind the project, led the opening ceremonies and rode the canal boat Seneca Chief from Buffalo to New York City.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A hedgehog's heart beats 300 times a minute on average.

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. Saying, ”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 as great as they are kind."

Red Ribbon Week
  • Today - “Crazy Hair Day”

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • 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!"
