Christian Schools Preview Week of May 2

0 Submitted by on Fri, 29 April 2016, 14:52


Our 8th graders left for their historical study tour of Washington D.C. at ~4am yesterday. Please hold them up in prayer, for traveling mercies, safety, and most importantly, that they truly learn how the hand of God helped to mold and shape our great country. Be sure to check the RCS Facebook page to see pictures of their adventures.

Come out and see the last RCS drama performance of the year! High school Drama II students are presenting “Fools,” by Neil Simon, next Friday (5/6) and Saturday (5/7) at 7pm. $5 tickets may be purchased in the RCMSHS office or from any Drama II student. We hope to see you there!

I have a request for all current RCS parents. RCS is in need of your opinion regarding how we are doing as a school. One of the accreditation requirements for 2018 from the Association of Christian Schools International and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges is that we solicit feedback from our parents. For the next four weeks, as part of the Week in Preview, we ask that you complete a series of four short surveys regarding specific aspects of RCS.
