Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 26 of school on this Wednesday, September 24, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 92 degrees.


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


Today is...
Punctuation Day

On this Day in History:
The Judiciary Act of 1789 is passed by Congress and signed by President George Washington, establishing the Supreme Court of the United States as a tribunal made up of six justices who were to serve on the court until death or retirement. That day, President Washington nominated John Jay to preside as chief justice, and John Rutledge, William Cushing, John Blair, Robert Harrison, and James Wilson to be associate justices. On September 26, all six appointments were confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

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 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:
MAP testing continues today. Please remember to be quiet and respectful around the computer lab for testing. Also, please do not walk through the lab during testing.
Testing today will be Mrs. Mallinger and Ms. Roberts/Martinez.

Tomorrow night, Thursday, is Rock Springs Night at Chuck E. Cheese's from 3:00 - 9:00. Come meet Chuck E. for some fun, food, and support your school.
Did you sell your 3 items for the fundraiser? If so, bring your ticket to the cafeteria BEFORE school to get your squeezie (not sure of that spelling).

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!”
