Lost and Found

Take a look at our virtual lost and found items that your student might be missing!

Weather–Appropriate Attire Reminder

Please ensure that your student comes to school with weather-appropriate attire throughout the school year. The only time that we will plan to have indoor recess is if there is an active thunderstorm in the area, or if the temperature/wind chill is below zero.

As the weather begins to transition to heavy rain and snow, we recommend that you bring a set of socks, gloves, a hat, snow pants and boots to be left at school. 

RCS Kids Care is Hiring! 

We are seeking friendly, compassionate, and responsible individuals,16 years old or older, to work in our Kids Care program! If interested, or know of anyone who may be interested, please contact the office.

A Note From Outdoor Education

Autumn in Michigan is a beautiful time of year. Make sure you take the time to notice and to give an extra word of praise to God for his creativity. Fall also presents a great opportunity to serve our neighbors. Do you know of a person or family who lives fairly close to school and needs leaves raked or shrubs trimmed? We want to give our students the chance to serve others by doing whatever yard work is necessary and to live out the old saying: "many hands make light work." Let me (Phil Warners) know of a neighbor that might have a difficult time getting this done before the snow flies and we will try and get a group of students over to do the work.

On a related note, PLEASE do not just throw away your old pumpkins when Halloween is over! Our compost bin, located near the bus garage on the west side of the school, would love to receive your donations! Bring the pumpkins in and let your kids smash them up in the compost bin! 

RCS Hot Lunch

This month we are offering two choices, so it's very important that you talk to your child about what their lunch selection is for that day. Please help us reinforce that they may not switch after they have placed their order. Thank you!

There is still time to apply for lunch benefits! Go to the Family Portal and apply for lunch benefits at any time throughout the year. The family portal may also be used for depositing money into your child's account at NO CHARGE. Please be mindful of your child's account balances, currently, we have over $2500 dollars in negative accounts. Thank you for your support.  To sign up to deposit money online,  you will need to know your student's ID number, which can be found on your Parent Vue account or email Jill Zondag


Volunteers Needed

Our next PTO meeting will be on October 27 at 6:30 pm in the RCS staff lounge, near the gym entrance. Please contact Lindsey Toth if you are interested in joining or have questions about serving.

If you would like to join our Auction Committee to help plan the spring auction, please contact Allison Breuker.

 If you're interested in being a room parent this school year, please contact Katie Underwood.

Take a look at the meeting minutes from the September 22 PTO Meeting.

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!
