Weekly Parent Letter - 5/5/23
Dear Parents and Families of RCS,
One of the most refreshing aspects of Warrior Nation is the common bond as Christ’s followers. We are unified in the opportunity to demonstrate to a lost, dark, and dying world the characteristics our Savior modeled for us in his brief time on Earth. We list some of these traits among the fruits of the Spirit – Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Peter instructs us to “...put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander…Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of His return.” (1 Peter 2:1,12) Where the world speaks harshly to each other, we can speak love. Where the world accuses, we can affirm. Where the world seems hopeless, we can share hope. Even the faintest light can dispel darkness!!
Please remember to share the upcoming Open House scheduled for Thursday, 11 May, with friends and prospective families. Feel free to stop by the RCS Facebook page and share the post for the Open House on your own social media pages. This is the final Open House scheduled this spring; prospective families can call Mrs. Montague in the front office at 804-276-3193 to register. If they can’t make the Open House, they can also call the front office to schedule a personal tour that fits their schedule.
The gym renovation project is picking up steam!!! We are now over $26,000 in donations, with $65,000 remaining. If you are considering a tax-deductible donation to this awesome project or would like to share the link with family and friends, go here to access the GoFundMe page. Please be in prayer for this and the many other upcoming summer projects, as well as the mission teams coming on campus this summer.
Please remember to read upcoming correspondence from your division principals and teachers carefully. With so much happening in the next three weeks, you don’t want to miss anything!! Included among this is a call for help on Saturday, 13 May, to disassemble the existing bleachers in the gym. Email Mr. Zbyszinski for more information or to sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have an amazing weekend; may the Lord grant you opportunities to be His hands and feet this coming week.
