Weekly Parent Letter - 9/30/22

September 30, 2022
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

This week was extraordinary for the RCS family, as students in all grades took a short break from academics to focus on the Lord.  They spent time with God through worship, devotions, and the Word.  On Monday and Tuesday, elementary students heard the message “You can serve God and others with what you have,” delivered by Pastor Jeremy Haskett from Calvary Baptist Church in Colonial Heights.

Secondary students were blessed to hear from Pastor Trey Bradley, Student Pastor at Flint Groves Baptist Church in Gastonia, NC.  He focused on the theme “Where You Are,” and the students enjoyed powerful times of prayer and discussion with their small groups.  The highlight in the middle of the week was the gathering of students, parents, and staff at the annual See You At The Pole event.  It was a student-led praise and prayer time dedicated to praying for our school, city, and nation.  Psalm 95:2 says, “Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.”  We rejoice today for all God is doing in the hearts and lives of the RCS family.

Don’t forget that two weeks from today marks the end of the 1st Quarter.  That Friday, 14 October, will be a half-day early release day for all students, and no lunch will be served that day.  The next day (Saturday) will be Homecoming Day festivities at the football game as we recognize this year’s Homecoming court and crown the 2022 Homecoming king and queen.  More details to come next week.

Don’t forget to plan to attend the Fall Fellowship event on Saturday, 5 November.  We have a full slate of family activities scheduled around the kickoff of the annual RCS Auction.  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.

Stay dry and safe this weekend.

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
