Spring Preview TONIGHT: Invite Your Friends and Family

 

TONIGHT February 7th, 6:30 pm, invite your friends, family, neighbors, and anyone interested to the Spring Preview where they can learn more about all RCS can offer their children.  

Remember: if any child enrolls at RCS because of your recommendation, you will receive EAGLE BUCKS: $750 off tuition for Kindergarten through 12th grade and $300 off tuition for Preschool.

 

Deadline for Re-Enrollment

 

Thank you for sharing your children with us this year. Although we are just beginning the second half of the year, we are in full swing with the preparations for the 2019-2020 school year!  For those of you who plan to return, you don't need to do anything at this point; we are taking care of everything for you!  If you are being called away from RCS, please make sure you have noted the 2/28/19 deadline as this is the last day to notify us that you are not returning to avoid a financial commitment.  

Drive Safe

With the influx of teenage drivers on our campus, we are asking parents to remind them about safety during drop off and pick up.  We have had several "close calls" with our new drivers.  We simply ask that you have a conversation with them explaining that drop off and pick up times are the busiest. It is imperative that teen drivers remain alert, drive slowly, and keep an eye out as kids can dart into the street.  

Father/Daughter Dance

 

Our 3rd Annual Daddy/Daughter Dance was great success!  Thank you to all our wonderful helpers who volunteered their time and donated goodies.  We hope each girl enjoyed this moment with the special man in their lives.  Be on the look-out for information on our Mother/son event coming soon!

Tell Your Friends:  Shadow Day

A Shadow Day affords prospective students the opportunity to visit the campus and more fully experience all RCS has to offer.  We believe it is best for students to shadow with their current grade level so future students can promptly begin creating meaningful relationships with current RCS students in the same peer group.  The following dates are available:

February 20th - Kindergarten 8:30 am to (OPTIONAL PICK UP) 1 pm or 3pm 

February 20 - 1st through 4th grade 8:30 am to 3pm

February 28th - 5th grade through 12th grade 8:30 am to 3 pm
