Parent Letter - 10/13/23

October 13, 2023
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

In Isaiah, chapter 25, the prophet says, “I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.”  To be faithful is to be steadfast, unwavering, and reliable.  Nothing alters the course; nothing changes the mission.  Applied to God, we see that from the beginning.  He had a plan that he carried out, unwavering, in order to provide a way for mankind to come back to the Father.  There was never a time in history when it was recorded that God had second thoughts about his redemption plan through his Son, Jesus Christ.  But we aren’t God, so how does this trait apply to us?  I am so glad you asked!  The world is working so hard to keep our focus off of God.  Satan doesn’t have to pull us into outright sin and rebellion – rather, he just needs to keep us distracted enough that our focus is on everything BUT God.  That is where faithfulness comes along.  As believers, we must resolve to stay the course, remain steadfast in our faith, and be reliable to what God calls us.  We don’t do it for ourselves however, we do it for those around us in need of hope, light, and a Savior.  Our faithfulness helps others see what faith in God looks like, and it could make an eternal difference in their lives as they put their trust in Him.

Remember that next Friday, 20 October, is a day off for students for Parent/Teacher conferences.  Conference appointments will run from 10:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.  Call the school number and select Option 5 to make an appointment.

If you are interested in receiving a 65% state tax credit (that’s right, a CREDIT!) for an end-of-year donation and helping RCS at the same time, please consider the Children’s Tuition Fund.  Here’s the short version of the steps:  you make a contribution to the Children’s Tuition Fund, then you receive a 65% state tax credit, and RCS receives a disbursement from the Children’s Tuition Fund for financial assistance.  Individuals and/or businesses can both contribute to the program and receive the tax credit.  Reach out to Mr. Zbyszinski with questions.  Here is a direct link to the program - https://childrenstuitionfund.org/states/virginia/information-for-contributors-virginia/.

Here’s another way to help RCS, and it only takes a few minutes of your time.  If you shop at Kroger (or know ANYONE ANYWHERE who shops there), all you have to do is link your Kroger Shopper’s Card to RCS.  Here is a link to do just that - https://www.kroger.com/i/community/community-rewards.  Currently, there are about 60-65 Shopper’s Cards linked to RCS through this program and RCS receives around $475 per quarter.  Imagine if we had 100 or more people linked to RCS!  Please tell/encourage anyone you know who shops at Kroger to link RCS to their Shopper’s Card.  Thank you!
May the Lord bless you with joy, rest, and safety this weekend!

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
