Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 17 of school on this Wednesday, September 9, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 97 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Wonderful Weirdoes Day

On this Day in History:
Though it had only been a part of the United States for less than two years, California becomes the 31st state in the union (without ever even having been a territory) on this day in 1850.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The smallest bone in the human body is the stapes or stirrup bone located in the middle ear. It is approximately 0.11 inches long.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think “The Golden Rule”.

The Golden Rule — do unto others as you would have them do unto you — nicely illustrates the Pillar of respect. Respect prohibits violence, humiliation, manipulation and exploitation. It reflects notions such as civility, courtesy, decency, dignity, autonomy, tolerance and acceptance.

According to an Unknown author, “The words you speak today should be soft and tender ... for tomorrow you may have to eat them.”

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

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!
