Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 27 of school on this Wednesday, September 23, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 90 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Andrews class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week, we will be joined by Ms. Roberts/Martinez class to lead us in the pledge.


Today is...
Innergize Day - A "do anything you want to do for yourself" day. A day of relaxation

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1806, amid much public excitement, American explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark return to St. Louis, Missouri, from the first recorded overland journey from the Mississippi River to the Pacific coast and back. The Lewis and Clark Expedition had set off more than two years before to explore the territory of the Louisiana Purchase.
In 1846,  German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle discovers the planet Neptune at the Berlin Observatory.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A salmon’s sense of smell is thousands of times better than a dog’s.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:x
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

A fair person thoroughly employs open and impartial processes for gathering and evaluating information necessary to make decisions. Fair people do not wait for the truth to come to them; they seek out relevant information and conflicting perspectives before making important judgments.

According to Muhammad Ali, boxer, “I never thought about losing, but now that its happened, the only thing is to do it right.”

MAP Testing:
Continues on today! Testing today will be Mrs. Fridell and Mrs. Ocampo, Mrs. Boyne, and Mrs. Goulart.

5th 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!
