🥙 From the PTO:
A huge thank you to all of the parents who volunteered to serve and/or provide items to feed our teachers during conferences. We are so grateful for your generosity and your willingness to step in and help. Your efforts make our teachers feel valued and appreciated. They invest in our children everyday, so it is a special opportunity to be able to show them some love on a couple of very busy nights. It was such a blessing to have so many parents participate. Our committee was humbled by the number of people who volunteered and the speed in which the SignUpGenius was filled. Thank you to everyone who was involved in making this happen. We know you are all busy, so taking the time to make a grocery run for items, assembling soup or salad ingredients, baking treats, or scheduling time to set up or clean up is a gift. It is a privilege to serve with a community of people who so willingly jump in to help.
💼 Learning Commons Volunteer
Attention parents! Do you love books? Do you love to volunteer at school? Are you organized and a lover of detail? If so, we would LOVE to have you volunteer in the Learning Commons! We might task you with things like shelving books, cleaning up messy shelves, delivering books and other things to classrooms + more! We promise it will be fun - because the library is the BEST place to be! If you are interested, please contact Carla Hardy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!

🙏 Parents and Grandparents in Prayer
We would love to welcome parents and grandparents to join us in praying for our school. For a number of years, parents and grandparents have been meeting one morning a week to pray for our teachers, staff, students and school community. We would love to continue that tradition again this year.
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
Our middle schoolers have been using the bus for OE… a lot. Each class has its own adopted park and each has now completed their fall visits: 5th - Pickerel Lake; 6th - Grand Rogue; 7th - Seidman; 8th - Huff. The objective for each of our three visits during the year is more than just to see the same place during three different seasons.
Fall - We learn as much as we can about the park, the governing agency, the purpose and the challenges of each park;
Winter - We snowshoe, ice fish, or enjoy the winter beauty of the park;
Spring - We work with the governing agency in some sort of park improvement project
Through this experience, we see the benefits of strong park systems for the enjoyment, mental health benefits, and animal habitat protection that parks offer. It’s all worth a few bus rides during the year.
Our Pop Can and Spare Change Project - October report (so far): $197.42 for the water filtration systems provided by World Renew. Thanks for helping us generate so much interest in Christian work across the world and within our own community!
RCS PTO News

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.
