Parent Letter - 5/3/24

May 03, 2024
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

Words.  According to the Oxford Dictionary, there are 171,476 words in current use.  Some have multiple meanings; some don’t mean what they used to.  The words we speak to others can be incredibly powerful.  While the mind helps us form our thoughts, which can become the words we use, the words we speak have power because they begin in our hearts.  Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”  In other words, the words we choose to begin in our hearts, and come with consequences.  When we speak good words (words of love, affirmation, and encouragement), we reap love, joy, and blessing.  We reap hatred, anger, and discord when we speak negative words (slander, gossip, and insults).  In either case, you can gauge the condition of one’s heart by the words one chooses to speak.  

However, we must remember to respond in the opposite spirit, especially when confronted with negativity, to react in the opposite spirit.  Darkness cannot be where light is present.  Also, remember that the only opinion we really need to take to heart is what comes from God himself.  “Do not fear.  I have redeemed you.  I have called you.  You are mine” (Isaiah 43:1).  Live in love.  Walk in truth.  Speak life.

Thank you to all who contributed to making Teacher Appreciation Week a huge success!!  We were overwhelmed with your love and appreciation through the cards, gifts, and meals, and I want to thank you on behalf of the teachers for a blessed and memorable week!

If you want to host a French or Spanish teen this summer, go to this link for more information.  Thirteen more students need summer placements.  Host an international student and make unforgettable memories!

This is just a reminder that we have one final Open House event scheduled for 9 May, starting at 6:30 p.m.  We still have open slots for prospective families to come, tour the school, meet the teachers and administrators, and hear what you already know - that RCS is a great place for their students to receive a Christ-centered education!  If you know someone interested, please have them call the main office at 804-276-3193 to register.
Be sure to track the newsletters from your principal, as they are full of dates, events, and reminders for the last four weeks of school.  Please pray for new staff and new families to join Warrior Nation.  Thank you in advance for your partnership to finish strong!

May the Lord bless you this weekend.

All 4 Him!
