Good morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, October 3, 2012. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of 90 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from _________________ class to lead us with the pledge. 


On this Day in History:

On this day in 1895, The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane, is published in book form. The story of a young man's experience of battle was the first American novel to portray the Civil War from the ordinary soldier's point of view. The tale originally appeared as a serial published by a newspaper syndicate. 

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The Giant Kelp algea is the fastest growing organism on earth and can grow at a rate of two feet a day.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The word of the week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold:
A respectful person is an attentive listener, although his patience with the boorish need not be endless (respect works both ways). Nevertheless, the respectful person treats others with consideration, and doesn’t resort to intimidation, coercion or violence except in extraordinary and limited situations to defend others, teach discipline, maintain order or achieve social justice. Punishment is used in moderation and only to advance important social goals and purposes. 
According to an unknown author, "The words you speak today should be soft and tender ... for tomorrow you may have to eat them.."

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
