Parent Letter - 11/3/23

November 03, 2023
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

And, just like that, November is here!!  As we enter the season of Thanksgiving, be sure to thank the Lord for all the blessings He provides.  One thing for which I am grateful is the blessing of having access to God’s Word and the Fruits of the Spirit.  This week, we will focus on the final fruit listed in Galatians 5:22-23 – Self-control.  Godly self-control helps keep our focus on Him and our actions aligned with the character of Christ.  Our human nature battles against this continually and requires constant fellowship with our Savior to maintain self-control.  Self-control is not just managing our reactions but proactively focusing on actions that serve and bless others and honor God.  

Next Thursday, 9 November, will be our first Open House event of the school year.  We will begin at 6:30 p.m. with introductions and a brief presentation in the library, followed by building tours and opportunities to meet with teachers.  If you know any folks looking for a safe, Christian learning environment, have them call Mrs. Montague at 804-276-3193 to register for the event.

Then, Saturday (11 November) will be our annual Fall Fellowship event.  There are still a bunch of open slots for cornhole, apple pie contest, and chili cookoff, so go to this link and sign up today!  We would love for all of you to join us for this fun, family event.  The Fun Run starts at 8 am.  We will have a Yard Sale in the front parking lot as well as crafts for sale, bounce houses for kids, and games for kids of all ages.  Please make plans to join us, and bring your friends, family, and neighbors as this event is open to the community.

If you are interested in receiving a 65% state tax credit (that’s right, a CREDIT!) for an end of year donation and help RCS at the same time, please consider Children’s Tuition Fund.  When you make a contribution to Children’s Tuition Fund, then you receive a 65% state tax credit, and RCS receives a disbursement from Children’s Tuition Fund for financial assistance for some of our students.  Reach out to Mr. Zbyszinski with questions.  Here is a direct link to the program.

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), just link your Kroger Shopper’s Card to RCS.  Go HERE to sign up.  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!

Thank you all for the privilege of partnering with you in educating Hearts and Minds for Christ! 

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
