Parent Letter - 2/10/23

February 10, 2023
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

We continue our series on the WARRIOR Way attributes with the first “R” – Respect.  The world sees respect in a way that is contrary to God’s Word.  The world says, ”respect me, and THEN I will respect you.”  Too often, their interpretation of respect concerns their idea that you must believe and accept what they say and believe without question.  Otherwise, you are disrespecting them.  The Bible gives a much different viewpoint of respect, found in Romans 12:10 – “Be devoted to one another in love.  Honor one another above yourselves.”  The focus here is on the well-being of others first rather than ourselves.  To devote yourself to something is to give all or a large part of one’s time or resources to someone or something else.  In God’s economy, our riches and peace come from what we give to others, not what we get from others.  When you think of the word respect today, ask God to give you opportunities to love others and show them honor.  This is respect from a Kingdom perspective, and it never returns void.

With a week before our next Open House, we already have 14 families registered to attend!!  Please be in prayer for this and future events, and also pray that God will continue to bring kingdom-minded families that love the Lord, serve others, and partner well with the mission of RCS.  Please feel free to pass on the date and time:  THURSDAY, 16 FEBRUARY AT 6:30 P.M.  Refreshments will be provided, as well as the opportunity to hear from some of our current families, take a tour of the campus, and meet with teachers and administrators to listen to what God is doing at RCS.  They can call the front office at 804-276-3193 to register.

Remember that Friday, 17 February, and Monday, 20 February, school will NOT be in session.  Enjoy the long weekend!

Re-enrollment continues to advance in preparation for the 2023-2024 school year.  If you have not yet completed your re-enrollment packet, please do so soon.  Just a reminder that on 1 March, the re-enrollment fee goes from $150 to $250.  Many applications are already in the pipeline, so please don’t lose your spot.  Remember, once a grade is full, families will be placed on a waiting list, and we prefer to have all of our amazing current families not be relegated to that list!

Coming up on 21 April will be our annual RCS Golf Tournament.  If you would like to volunteer some time to help with the organization and planning for the event, please reach out to LeighAnn Kiebler as soon as possible at leighannk@madisonmain.com.  She will fill you in on her needs for planning the event.

Thank you all for your prayers and commitment to the mission and vision of RCS.

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
