Parent Letter - 12/9/22

December 09, 2022
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

With only 15 shopping days until Christmas, it is a good time to take a look at the significance of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  In the book of Matthew, the genealogy of Jesus is laid out.  I won’t go into all the names but just focus on the numbers – 14 generations from Abraham to David, 14 generations from David to the Babylonian exile, and 14 generations from the exile to Christ.  What is the significance of these numbers?  14 (2 times 7) represents a double portion of spiritual perfection (with 2 representing the incarnation).  So, three (the number of completion) sets of double portions of spiritual perfection indicate just how spiritually significant and perfect Christ and his birth are.  As you prepare for the holidays, don’t forget that the coming of God’s Son for the salvation of humanity was both perfect in timing and perfect in purpose.

This coming week is the last week of the first semester, so I want to remind you of important scheduling changes for both Elementary and Secondary students.  All students will have a normal Monday schedule and dismissal time.  Tuesday through Friday will all be half days, with Elementary dismissal at 11:40, Secondary at 11:55.  Secondary students will be taking exams on these days; please refer to the schedule sent to you in a previous communication.  Aftercare will close Tuesday through Thursday at 4:00 p.m.  On Friday, there will be no aftercare service.  Please make plans accordingly.

Here is an easy way to support RCS by just “doing what you do.”  If you shop at Kroger (or know anyone else 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.  Please tell/encourage anyone you know who shops at Kroger to link RCS to their Shopper’s Card.  Thank you!

Be blessed this weekend; I pray for rest and perfect peace for you and your family.

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
