Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 16 of school on this Wednesday, September 10, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 93 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Laquindanum's class to lead us in the pledge.


Today is...
Swap Ideas Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1608, English adventurer John Smith is elected council president of Jamestown, Virginia--the first permanent English settlement in North America. Smith, a colorful figure, had won popularity in the colony because of his organizational abilities and effectiveness in dealing with local Native American groups.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The longest recorded distance flown by any chicken is about 301.5ft in 13 seconds.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".

The Golden Rule “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” nicely illustrates the Pillar of respect. Respect prohibits violence, humiliation, manipulation and exploitation. It reflects notions such as civility, courtesy, decency, dignity, autonomy, tolerance and acceptance.

According to an Unknown author, “The words you speak today should be soft and tender ... for tomorrow you may have to eat them.”

It's Picture Day!

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!”
