Parent Letter - 1/12/24

January 12, 2024
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

Chapter 13 of 1 Corinthians is called the “love” chapter, and the apostle Paul uses 14 verbs to describe love. It is interesting that seven of them talk about what love is or does, and seven describe what love does not do. The love of which Paul speaks is the Greek word agape, which we often describe as unconditional love. It is interesting that John describes God as “love” in 1 John 4:16: “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” Paul, building on the idea that God is love, essentially lists the attributes of our Heavenly Father as a model for what God expects from us. While we can never BE love nor truly live out that agape love, we can, through our relationship with Christ, SHOW love, and essentially show God to a dark, lost, and dying world. Go out today and show Christ to the world by showing them love. As the song says, “They will know we are Christians by our love.”

Coming on Thursday, 25 January, is our first Open House event for the 2024-2025 school year. If you have friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors that you feel will be a great addition to Warrior Nation, please have them call the front office at 804-276-3193 to register. They will hear from the leadership team and current parents, tour the campus, and meet our amazing teachers. Our best advertisement is YOU – thank you in advance for helping RCS in this area.

Please be sure your current phone number is updated in FACTS, in the event of a future closing or delay. You can find the day’s status for closings and delays in a number of places. We post them on NBC 12 and CBS 6, as well as our website. Should we have to close or delay, we will also communicate via text message and email through FACTS.

Soon, you will be receiving information regarding re-enrollment for the 2024-2045 school year. We give you, our current RCS families, the first opportunity to secure your student’s seat for next year and look forward to continuing our partnership with you. Please remember that once new enrollment is open for prospective families, seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If we get to a point where a grade level is filled, all subsequent students will be placed on a waiting list. So please don’t delay and risk losing your child’s spot. We want to continue serving your family!

Thank you in advance for your prayers and partnership. We love and appreciate you all!

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
