The Eagle Experience at GRCHS!
For Middle Schoolers, the transition to high school might be years down the road or a handful of months away. Regardless of the timeline, the decision of where your child will spend their formative high school years is an important one. We recognize that Rockford Christian students have a number of different options to choose from as they move on to their high school years. As you consider the next steps for your child, we want to walk alongside your family and assist you in the decision-making process.

A Note From Outdoor Education
Welcome to 2023! This month in Outdoor Education, we will be highlighting five important components of Earthkeeping and what it means to be a creation steward: preservation, conservation, restoration, maintenance, and observation. How does each of these play a role in learning to care for God's world? By the month's end, we hope to have each of our students know the differences and see why each is important as we together strive for understanding creation more fully.
January is typically filled with snow and winter activities. As of now, that looks like both a memory and a hope. In the meantime, continue to be ready for whatever weather is coming our way. After all, we have a new slogan around Room 135 we intend to embody: "Don't just look out the window... get outside!"
Our Pop Can and Spare Change Fund for December was incredible! Combined with the proceeds from our firestarter sale and our Jingle Bells Post Office, we netted $513.09 for Mel Trotter Ministries! THANK YOU! Let's continue to be a generous community! Next up for January, we will hope to bless Degage' Ministries of Grand Rapids!

RCS TRIP Office
The TRIP Office is available on Tuesday mornings in the RCS Office!
New to TRIP? TRIP allows you to reduce the cost of tuition by purchasing gift cards and gift certificates for things you buy every day from hundreds of national and local vendors.
How does TRIP work? When you purchase gift cards at face value, a percentage of your purchase is credited to your TRIP account. Two times per year (November 1 and May 1), the accumulated TRIP credits are applied as payment to your tuition account, or donated to the tuition account you have designated.
Parents in Prayer
We have a unique opportunity to gather as moms, dads, and grandparents to pray for our school — little siblings are welcome too!
Parents In Prayer will be meeting on Wednesday mornings after drop-off. We will again be meeting outside and walking around the campus. We will follow the guidelines given by the Moms in Prayer organization. You can find the resources that we will use here.
We look forward to having many parents join us this year!
