GLOW NIGHT: 7th & 8th-Grade Dance
The GRCMS PTO is excited to host a GLOW NIGHT dance for our 7th and 8th graders on February 4th, 7-9:00 pm! Join us for a night of refreshments, dancing, games, and a whole lot of fun! 7th and 8th-grade students from GRCMS and Rockford Christian Middle School are invited! You don’t want to miss it!
The cost to attend is $5 at the door. 7th and 8th-grade students have received permission slips and must bring them to the dance in order to attend.
Suggested Attire: There will be black lights and glow lights, so colors like white or neon are really fun! You do not have to be dressy to attend
Join Us for Winterfest!
The PTO is celebrating Winterfest 2023 on Sunday, February 5 from 2 pm to 4:30 pm. The event includes both indoor and outdoor fun at Camp Roger. Bring the family and grab a cup of cocoa, eat s'mores and cookies and enjoy some outdoor fun that usually includes broomball and sledding! Questions - reach out to Kristin Buursma. Watch for more details to come!
Got Dryer Lint? Did you know Camp Roger uses dryer lint for an easy fire starter? Now you do!
We’re having a "lint-raiser" to donate to camp at our Winterfest event. Come join us on February 5 to make your own flint and steel and see if you have what it takes to "make a spark"! So - grab a ziplock or Meijer bag and have your kids empty the dryer vent. They can bring the bags to Mr. Phil’s classroom and he will collect them. Questions? Reach out to Kristin Buursma
A Note From Outdoor Education
The snow... where is it? This is supposed to be January in Michigan! We have the snowshoes ready, we have the cross-country skis waiting, and we have all kinds of winter events scheduled, but we are missing just the one white ingredient we need!
This month we persevere, and so we focus on the heroes of the environmental movement and the responsibility we all have to be earth-keepers. The middle school students have discussed the concept of land management and many of the factors that go into the topic. Ultimately, I hope students will begin to understand that we need to change the question. "What can we do with this land?" should start with a precursor question: "what can we learn from this land?" Snow or no snow, education can continue.
Our Pop Can and Spare Change Project has Degage Ministries as its beneficiary this month. So far we have $129.60. Let RCS help you get rid of those containers!

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!
