Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 36 of school on this Wednesday, October 8, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 86 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mr. Hernandez's class to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Goulart's class.


Today is...
American Tag Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1919, the first transcontinental air race in the United States begins, with 63 planes competing in the round-trip aerial derby between California and New York. As 15 planes departed the Presidio in San Francisco, California, 48 planes left Roosevelt Field on Long Island, New York.

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 Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

A good citizen:

  • believes the country is worth keeping strong,
  • understands the importance of citizen involvement in a democracy, and appreciates the impact of a single act and of millions of single acts.

According to Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father and third U.S. president, "A nation, as a society, forms a moral person, and every member of it is personally responsible for his society."

MAP Testing:
MAP Testing continues today with Mrs. Sylliaasen and Ms. Peters in the computer lab. Mrs. Boyne will be testing with the CoW.

Fundraiser money is due today

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!”
