Parent Letter - 9/15/23

September 15, 2023
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

Colossians 3:15 speaks to this week’s fruit of the Spirit – peace. “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.” This peace begins with peace with God through Christ's blood on the cross, which only comes through a personal relationship with him. If we have peace with God, we can truly experience peace with others. The context of this verse indicates peace, or unity and harmony, with the other members of the body of Christ. While we don’t always agree on everything, we are instructed in the Word to seek peace with each other at all times. This verse instructs us to allow this peace to “rule” in our hearts, which means it controls how we live. If we seek God first to direct our lives and then live it out in our relationships with our brothers and sisters, we will find true contentment regardless of our circumstances.

On Tuesday, 12 September, we conducted our first lockdown drill. Throughout the year, we will have scheduled drills for fire, severe weather, and lockdowns as part of our school safety plan. Teachers and students have been instructed on what protocol to follow in the event of a campus emergency; these drills will test their readiness. So far, all of our drills have been completed with excellence, as students and staff have done an outstanding job executing these drills.

We are excited to share the details of the upcoming Fall Fellowship, happening on Saturday, 14 October (not 28 October as previously mentioned). The festivities will begin at 8:00 a.m. with a Yard Sale in the front parking lot. They will include a campus Fun Run (prizes awarded by division), Craft Sale, cornhole tournament, apple pie, and chili contests, bounce houses and carnival-type games for kids, and live music. The Parent Volunteer Committee will coordinate signups for the pie, chili, and cornhole competitions, so stay tuned for that information.

Another event tradition at RCS takes place the following week – Homecoming!! This year, homecoming will be Saturday, 21 October. The presentation of the homecoming court will take place on the football field at 3:00 p.m., followed by the football game, as RCS hosts Kenston Forest. Kickoff time for the game will be 4:00 p.m.
May the Lord bless you in His abundant grace, and enjoy the cooler weather!

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
