Parent Letter - 2/9/24

February 09, 2024
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

At our First Monday gathering earlier this week, I shared excerpts with our students from the Sunday sermon we heard at church the day before.  The Barna Research Group noted in a recent survey that approximately one in three practicing Christian young adults report feelings of loneliness ranging from intense to unbearable.  In a world of social media and technology saturation, we are more disconnected than ever before.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 addresses this very real phenomenon: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.  But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”  Then, in verse 12, “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.  A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”  What is he saying?  Quite simply, we are better together.  When we press in to God together, we can encourage each other, hold each other up in trials, and meet each other’s needs.  If you are struggling in this area, call a friend, pastor, or family member.  Or, be the hands and feet of Christ and take the first step to help someone else, and watch God meet that need in your life.

Remember that this coming Tuesday, 13 February, is our next Open House event.  If you know someone you feel would be a great addition to Warrior Nation, have them call the main office at 804-276-3193 to register and join us at 6:30 p.m. to meet our team, hear from parents and students, get a tour of the campus, and meet our amazing teachers.

If you have not completed your re-enrollment form, please do so soon as we are now in Open Enrollment, so seats are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.  The re-enrollment fee will increase to $250 on 1 March.  We are better together, and RCS is better with YOU!  New applications are being processed, and rolling enrollment means grades may fill quickly.

Share your heart and home this summer! Host a student from Spain or France (ages 13-17) in your home for 3–4 weeks. Learn about their culture while he or she learns about living in an American family by just being a part of what you regularly do. There are a variety of programs to suit your family’s work or non-working schedule. Families receive stipends to help out with expenses. Transportation or vacation concerns can be worked out. This will be a treasured memory for your family! Contact Debbie Hardy at 804-909-3190 or debbiehardy2003@yahoo.com.  For more information, click HERE.

Blessings to you and your family, and thank you for trusting us with your students.

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
