💼 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 email@example.com. 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
A fairly common experience for our OE program is that we receive visitors from other schools who are contemplating what outdoor education could look like at their school. This happened again last week when a group of teachers from Byron Center joined us. They were so impressed with the activities, the campus, and the program, but even more so with the kindness they received from our students. As we keep moving forward with new ideas and new activities, I feel the need to stop and be so thankful for what we have here at RCS. It is more than just OE. It is more than just a favorite teacher. It is more than a beautiful campus. We have a special place here and I pause to thank God for RCS.
The Pop Can and Spare Change Project - $42.65 for World Renew. Thanks for your support for this incredible ministry.

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.
