Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 22 of school on this Wednesday, September 17, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, with high of about 82 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Ms. Peters' class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week, we will be joined by Mrs. Andrews class to lead us in the pledge.


Today is...
Mayflower Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1893, the largest land run in history begins with more than 100,000 people pouring into the Cherokee Strip of Oklahoma to claim valuable land that had once belonged to Native Americans. With a single shot from a pistol the mad dash began, and land-hungry pioneers on horseback and in carriages raced forward to stake their claims to the best acres.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The pineapple is actually a giant berry.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about  responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable. An accountable person is not a victim and doesn’t shift blame or claim credit for the work of others. He considers the likely consequences of his behavior and associations. He recognizes the common complicity in the triumph of evil when nothing is done to stop it. He leads by example.

According to Titus Livius, Roman historian and philosopher, “Men's minds are too ready to excuse guilt in themselves.”

MAP Testing:
Continues on today! Testing today will be Ms. Nelson, Ms. Peters, and Mrs. Riley.

4th Grade week.

Safety First!
  • 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!
