🙏 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 Belding Road just east of Northland Drive is a sign that reads “MDOT Adopt-a-Highway” and just below that another that says “Rockford Christian School.” This week our seventh and eighth graders walked this stretch up to Myers Lake Road and participated in doing our duty for the 20th consecutive year by picking up and bagging the trash along the highway. Why do this? RCS is not a stand-alone entity but we strive to be a part of a community and an ambassador of creation care. This is a tangible way for our students to realize this and for our neighbors to witness it. We see it as a simple way of being salt and light in our world.
The Pop Can and Spare Change Drive: Our September effort brought in $200.71 for Baxter Community Center. For October, we will focus our efforts on helping World Renew fund water filtration systems for families.
RCS PTO News
We successfully hit our fundraising goal and had a wonderful day celebrating with students. Many thanks to the HH committee and the volunteers for all the work put into the event. Special thanks to Abby Lewis who provided hayrides to all the elementary students and Grange Fruit Farm who donated all the apples to the students.
Congratulations to the following students:
Molly Phelps who won the "Above and Beyond AOK" award in middle school
Kolten Koetsier who won the "Above and Beyond AOK" award in the elementary school
The "Top Dollar Student" was a three-way tie between Grayden, Paisley, and Norah Zylstra
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.
