Lost and Found
Check out our digital lost and found.
You may purchase digital gift cards online for your child or for teachers and staff. This is the easiest, safest and fastest way for your kiddo to shop! We also will accept cash/check and cards as payment during the fair. If special arrangements need to be made for your child, please let us know or send along a note with your child.
You can shop online from now until the end of the fair. Please feel free to pass this link along to grandparents, other family, out-of-town friends, and anyone else who may wish to purchase books for your kiddos (think CHRISTMAS!) and support our school. Books will ship at the end of our in-person fair, and will be delivered to RCS.
If you wish to purchase books for teachers, teacher wish lists will be available during the fair. In addition, check out the book club Literati has available!
Here is our fair schedule in detail. Be sure to check this out to see when the fair is open!
Thank you for your support!

🌎 Host a Rockford Christian International Student
We are expecting a young lady from China to join our school community starting in January. This young lady is excited to experience life in West Michigan, living with an American family and attending 7th and 8th grade at RCS. If you are interested in other cultures, enjoy hospitality, and want to have an enduring impact on a young person's life then this could be a great opportunity for your family! Host families receive a monthly stipend (or the equivalent in tuition remission) to cover costs and we provide orientation, training, and ongoing support throughout the school year. For more information contact Joelle Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 616.574.5652.
🙏 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 that resource.

🌲 A Note from Outdoor Education
The Outdoor Education program at Rockford Christian School is so much more than just another class on the schedule. We exist to give children an intimate look at creation, to build a sense of community, and to recognize God’s amazing love for us by analyzing what he has made. These are our overriding goals for our year:
We want to nurture curiosity.
We want to slow down our lives long enough to look deeply at things.
We want to be confronted with the impact each of us has on our world.
We want each of us to grow in a deeper understanding of who God is by analyzing the world he gave us.
We want to care for this world because it is God’s and we are just passing through.
How do we do this? We build, we destroy, we gather, we uproot, we plant, we work, we get dirty, and we marvel. Thank you for joining us in this quest and for allowing your children to be a part of this journey.
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.
