👕 Lost and Found
Check out our digital lost and found. Lost and Found will be donated after Thanksgiving break. Please come and claim your belongings!
😷 Health Awareness
PLEASE keep the school office informed of any symptoms, illnesses, and test results that prevent your student from attending school. Please report all absences to your child's teacher and the school office (email@example.com).
Thank you for keeping your kids home when they are sick. Children who have two or more cold-like symptoms, any child with a fever, and any child who vomits or has diarrhea should remain out of school for 24 hours after symptoms subside and without the use of medication.
🙏 Parents and Grandparents in Prayer
Parents and Grandparents in Prayer meet on Wednesday mornings in the school parking lot at 8:45 after drop-off. We typically walk around the campus as we pray. Little siblings are welcome to join us. We follow the guidelines outlined by Moms in Prayer International. Here is a link to the Moms in Prayer resource.
We are always looking for parents to step in and help with recess duty at lunchtime. 12:20 pm to 1 pm. This is a great chance to be on campus and enjoy watching our students interact! Sign up here to join us for recess duty at Rockford Christian.

🌲 A Note from Outdoor Education
The dropping temperatures indicate it’s time again for my seasonal reminder: Please have your children dress for the weather, especially on OE days! When a child complains he is cold and he is wearing only a long-sleeved T-shirt, I try to refrain from making a sarcastic remark.
We are entering the holiday season and we wish to remember people who are not as fortunate as we are. Our Pop Can/Spare Change Project will be Mel Trotter Ministries, a Grand Rapids-based agency that serves the homeless people of our community. Click here to learn more about Mel Trotter's work. One reason why we offer this kind of opportunity monthly is that learning thankfulness is a life skill. Without understanding the needs of others, some students may believe that what they have is earned, normal, or deserved. None of this is true. We are blessed and are called by Jesus to bless others. Let’s try to do this well at Rockford Christian School.
RCS PTO News
Our next PTO gathering will be our Christmas Celebration on November 30th. We hope to see you there!
Our next PTO meeting will be on January 18th at 6:30pm in the Learning Commons. Any questions, contact Lindsey Toth.
RCS TRIP Office
The TRIP Office is available on Tuesday mornings in the RCS Office from 8 am to 10 am.
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.
