Rockford Christian End of the Year Details 2020

May 11, 2020

Dear Rockford Christian Family,

School has a certain rhythm. We find routine in our days and mark the year with milestone events and assemblies. COVID19 brought the familiar cadence of school life to an abrupt halt. I am so grateful for the hard work of our teachers and families as they’ve developed new routines and maintained classroom community amid our off-campus learning.

As we near the end of our year, we are eager to celebrate the growth we’ve seen in your students, reflect on God’s faithfulness to Rockford Christian, and find closure on this year despite our physical distance. We are thankful for this community and want to end the year well.

Here are some important dates and events to look forward to. We will continue to re-evaluate our plan based on developing guidelines to ensure everyone’s health and safety.
