Weekly Parent Letter - 9/16/22

September 16, 2022
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

As we wrap up week four, it is great to see everyone settling into the new school year so well.  Teachers and students are building rapport in the classroom, and parents also seem “in the zone,” judging by how smoothly the carline runs in the morning and afternoon.  Thank you, parents, for your trust and patience with our carline team as they direct traffic and help safely unload and load your students.

As we move into fall and allergy (and sickness) season, please remember that if your child is home sick, you should send info to attendance@richmondchristian.com to report the absence.  If a doctor's visit is necessary, please send your child a copy of the doctor’s note when they return to school.  This will help assure that our attendance office properly documents the absence.

Please continue to be in prayer for the following campus-wide events coming up.  On 28 September, we will gather for the annual See You At The Pole prayer event.  It is a student-led time of worship and prayer for our nation.  More information will be coming as we get closer to the event.  Also, the 26th and 27th of September will be the Fall Spiritual Emphasis Days for elementary students, and the 28th – 30th will be our Fall Spiritual Emphasis Days for secondary.  Last year, we saw a mighty move of God in our students on these days – please pray that He will continue to move in the hearts of our students in a powerful way.

Mark your calendars for another exciting event coming to RCS – The First Annual RCS Fall Fellowship on Saturday, 5 November, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Festivities include the RCS yard sale, a bake sale, live music, face painting, and several fun competitions – Family Fun Run, chili cook-off, apple pie contest, and a 16-team cornhole tournament!!  We will also have Brunswick Stew available on site for purchase.  You don’t want to miss being part of this new and exciting fellowship day.  Please invite your friends and neighbors!  More details on the competitions will be coming soon, so break out those secret family recipes and warm up your throwing arm – it will be a blast!  That afternoon, we will also kick off the annual RCS Online Auction, which will run until Friday, 11 November.  The rain date will be the following Saturday, 12 November.  Proceeds from the auction will go toward pre-funding student financial aid, while proceeds from the competitions will be used toward student activities for the 2022-23 school year.

Thank you all for your partnership and your prayers.  I bless you this week with 2 Corinthians 9:8, “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” Have a great weekend!

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
