Weekly Parent Letter - 10/7/22

October 07, 2022
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

It is hard to believe that one week from today, the school year will be one-quarter of the way complete!! We have so much for which to praise God in His provision and goodness as we count the many blessings God has provided so far.  Coming out of COVID and last year's challenges, it would be easy to sit back as a school community, catch our breath, and relax.  However, I feel it is the time to rally together and march forward, taking back for God's kingdom the places Satan has tried to steal.  In Deuteronomy 30:16, the word says, "For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess." Simply put, love God, be obedient, and keep his Word, and He will provide the increase and blessing as we move forward with him.

Two significant events are coming in the next two weeks.  First, on Friday, 14 October, the 1st Quarter officially ends and is a half-day early release for students.  No lunch will be served, and Aftercare will close at 4:00 p.m.  Elementary dismissal will be at 11:40 am, and Secondary dismissal will be at 11:55 am on that day.  The next day, Saturday, will be the homecoming festivities, including the presentation of the homecoming court, the announcement of the homecoming king and queen, and a football game against Blessed Sacrament-Huguenot.  Homecoming court festivities begin at 3:00 pm, with kickoff scheduled for 4:00 pm.

Then in two weeks (21 October), the school will be closed for students to have our fall parent-teacher conferences.  Appointments will be scheduled with teachers between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and can be made starting Monday, 10 October, by calling Rhodie Bond, Admin. Assistant, at 804-276-3193 Ext. 3047.

By now, you should have received information from Mrs. Patton regarding the Fall Fellowship events for which to sign up.  Proceeds from the auction will go toward pre-funding student financial aid, while proceeds from the competitions will be used toward student activities this school year.

Enjoy this beautiful fall weekend, and thank you all for your prayers, support, and partnership.

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
