Rockford Principal's Corner — October 5, 2021

Dear Rockford Christian Families, 

Over the past 10 days or so, students have been busy blessing others with acts of kindness as a part of our fall fundraiser, the Harvest Hustle, happening this Friday. Students are also working hard to meet our fundraising goal of $25,000 before our celebration at the end of the week. This money goes towards the type of hands-on, inquiry-based, nature-rich experiences that define Christian education at RCS. 

I’m happy to share a few “Frequently Asked Questions” from our PTO in advance of the Harvest Hustle on Friday and hope you might be able to join us!

When is my kid participating?

What if my kid hasn’t registered yet?

There are still 3 days left to register, log acts of kindness, and raise money for our school! Please register your child at the link below (you'll need to create a new account even if you participated last year).

Is that all?

No! You can check out our leaderboard to see all the awesome work each class has done. There will also be prizes for any student who completes 10 AOKs, sends 5 emails, and raises $100, along with whole class incentives. 

Thank you for all you do in support of Christian Education at Rockford Christian School!
