💼 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 in becoming a Learning Commons volunteer, 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
On Thursday, the RCS 2nd graders will be hosting the entire 2nd grade from Grand Rapids Christian Elementary School (Iroquois Campus) for a day of Outdoor Education. These 140 students will learn more about erosion and weathering, how the land can regenerate after being damaged, and other scientific points of interest. But also this is a chance for students from one school to reach out and get to know students from another school. Our 2nd graders will be learners, but also act as hosts and guides. It will be a busy day!
We have passed the $200 goal for October’s Pop Can and Spare Change Project! Keep them coming for the World Renew Water Filter Project!
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.
