Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 20 of school on this Wednesday, September 21, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and chance of rain today with high of about 85 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Roberts' 4th grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Riley's 3rd grade.


Today is...
International Day of Peace

On this Day in History
On this day in 1780, during the American Revolution, American General Benedict Arnold meets with British Major John Andre to discuss handing over West Point to the British, in return for the promise of a large sum of money and a high position in the British army. The plot was foiled and Arnold, a former American hero, became synonymous with the word "traitor."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A day on the planet Mercury is twice as long as its year. Mercury rotates very slowly but revolves around the Sun in slightly less than 88 days.

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 Robert W. Service, American poet, “A promise made is a debt unpaid.”

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • 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!"
