Weekly Parent Letter - 8/12/22

August 12, 2022
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

I remember a few years ago, a commercial on TV about a family at the dinner table where the parents asked their student, "What did you do at school today?" to which he replied, "we did this, then that was over…then we did that, then that was over…" It is easy for us as adults to look at the tasks before us and view them in the same way; finishing a task and saying "then that was over" so we can move on to the next task.  When we place a focus on God in the task, it takes on a whole new purpose.  We do it as unto Him, not as unto our checklist.  Psalm 40:8 says, "I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart." As we make plans and preparations for the coming year, let us delight in doing God's will in all we seek to accomplish, knowing His way and plan are perfect.

A sincere, heartfelt "thank you" is to the parents and families that volunteered time and food to make our new teachers feel incredibly welcome to Warrior Nation.  If this type of service interests you, please reach out to Mrs. Patton, the Elementary Principal, to see if there are plans and needs for next week when all staff are back on campus.

Speaking of next week, here are some upcoming events to note:

  • Orientations
    • Kindergarten – Friday, 19 August at 4:00 p.m. in the library
    • New Secondary (6-12) Students – Friday, 19 August, from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the cafeteria.  Please note the change in start time for this event.
  • Warrior Welcome (K-12) – Friday, 19 August, from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the back of the school.  Food, fun, and fellowship with be on the menu.  There will be plenty of games & activities: Inflatables, Kickball, and Sand Volleyball, to name a few.  Also, it's an excellent opportunity to meet your new teachers and get your schedule before Meet and Greet Day.  The Spirit Store will be open so you can stock up on WARRIOR-WEAR.  NOTE:  This will be an outdoor event.
  • Meet and Greet Day – Monday, 22 August.  A chance to come by during your designated time slot to meet teachers, drop off supplies, get locker assignments (7-12), and other information (like schedules, parking passes, etc.).  Please attend during the times below (it's not necessary to stay for the entire time):
    • 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. – Last names A – I
    • 10:30 – 12:00 – Last names J – R
    • 1:30 – 3:00 – Last names S – Z

Praying rest and peace over you and your family as summer winds down and we gear up for another amazing school year!!

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
