Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, October 30, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 67 degrees.


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

Next week, Ms. S. Isherwood's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

National Candy Corn Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1938, Orson Welles causes a nationwide panic with his broadcast of "War of the Worlds"—a realistic radio dramatization of a Martian invasion of Earth.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

You shed and regrow your skin every 28 days, that's about 1,000 times in a lifetime.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".

Honesty and Integrity are both qualities of someone that has Trustworthiness. Being honest means being truthful and sincere. A person of integrity is undivided and complete.

According to author Edgar J. Mohn, "A lie has speed, but truth has endurance."

Student Council

It's not too late for candidates to turn in posters. If you have not completed you 3 posters, get them done and drop them in the office. Election day is November 7th!


Tomorrow is our annual Halloween parade. If you plan to dress, please come to school in costume and be prepared to change immediately following the parade. 
A note about costumes; costumes need to be appropriate for school. This means no weapons, plastic or otherwise, will be allowed. Also, no blood of any kind. If you have a mask with blood, you need to leave it at home. Teachers will take any item deemed inappropriate.

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!”
