 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7

CALLING ALL RCS FAMILIES!
OUR ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
The Golf Tournament is just 2 weeks away and we need your help to make it a success! The golf tournament is one of our TWO major fund-raising events supporting Rosehill Christian School. We know that Hurricane Harvey has affected many families and businesses in our area. This year we will be giving back 5% of our net to a local organization that is helping Harvey victims.
How can your family participate?
Golf Sponsorships: Individuals and Teams welcome!
Non - Golf Sponsorships: We still have several Non -Golf Sponsorships including Hole Sponsorships that are available. Highlighted in YELLOW are the ones that we still need to fill. Click HERE for the forms. Contact Andrea Sharayha with any questions. 
Donations: These tax deductible cash gifts can be from friends, family and/or businesses.  All gifts are very much appreciated...no gift is too small!
How do we qualify for prizes?
Student/Family participation = A FREE Lunch Ice Cream for your kiddos.
Families who raise $250 = the Ice Cream plus A FREE DRESS DAY on Tuesday, November 28th, 2017.
Students who raise $400 or more = a Nike Elite String Back-pack in addition to the Ice Cream and Free Dress Day. Families with more than one child may earn one back pack per $400 raised up to a maximum of the number of students they have enrolled.
When we reach our event proceeds goal of at least $33,000, the ENTIRE student body receives an additional Free Dress Day on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017. Each of us has a network of family, friends and co-workers. Reach out to your network and see if anyone has a business that would like to use our event to grow relationships or use as team building. Every family can help make this event a success. Thank you so much for your help in supporting the ministry of Rosehill Christian School.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILDOperation Christmas Child is in full swing again! Start packing your boxes for children throughout the globe who need to feel the love of Jesus this Christmas season. Start with a quality “wow” item such as a stuffed animal, soccer ball with pump, or clothing that will capture the child’s attention the instant he or she opens the box.  Gift suggestions also include fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to fill the shoebox. Check out their website for more ideas and what "not" to pack. Boxes will be presented during elementary chapel on November 1st. Contact Mrs. Justice with any questions.

SPEECH MEET Each year Rosehill Christian School participates in an Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Speech Meet.  Our speech meets are mandatory and will take place on January 19, 2018 (grades 1-3) and January 26, 2018 (grades 4-6).  Students in grades 1-6 will choose from a range of selections and categories and will present their memorized selections in front of a closed panel of three judges.  The top two students per category, per grade will represent their school and their Lord at the ACSI Regional Speech Meet on March 2, 2018 at Alpha Omega Academy in Huntsville. For more information, take a look at our speech webpage.
