Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, September 4, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 95 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Goulart's Class.


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell's class.


Happy Birthday!

RSU wishes Mrs. Reynoso a Happy Birthday!

Today is...

Newspaper Carrier Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1886, Apache chief Geronimo surrenders to U.S. government troops. For 30 years, the mighty Native American warrior had battled to protect his tribe's homeland; however, by 1886 the Apaches were exhausted and hopelessly outnumbered. General Nelson Miles accepted Geronimo's surrender, making him the last Indian warrior to formally give in to U.S. forces and signaling the end of the Indian Wars in the Southwest.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Your tongue print is as unique as your fingerprints.

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".

When others trust us, they give us greater leeway because they feel we don’t need monitoring to assure that we’ll meet our obligations. They believe in us and hold us in higher esteem. That’s satisfying. At the same time, we must constantly live up to the expectations of others and refrain from even small lies or self-serving behavior that can quickly destroy our relationships.

According to Robert W. Service, American poet, "A promise made is a debt unpaid."

MAP Testing

MAP Testing begins this week. Students, take your time and do your best. Show your new teacher how smart you are and do your best.
Teachers: check your email later today for some updated information about MAP testing and be sure to stay current on any changes to the MAP calendar. 

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!”
