Exciting Elementary Events

Elementary students at Rosehill Christian School are being engaged academically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally throughout their day and in a variety of different ways.  Our experienced and dedicated teachers are working hard to connect with your children so each one will be successful, knowing that they are created in the image of God and has a purpose to serve His Kingdom.  We've celebrated so many different events this first quarter of the new school year:  Adventure Dash fundraiser, Homecoming and shared school spirit, and Grandparents visiting in the classrooms.  We have enjoyed fun theme days like Favorite Team Jersey, Superhero Day, and School Spirit Day.  Elementary has focused on placing Christ first in their lives through our chapel speakers, worship, and having a servant's heart through kindness and love for everyone.  To all of our elementary students, I say, "Don't give up!  I believe in you all! A person's a person, no matter how small" (Dr. Seuss - Horton Hears a Who).

Middle School Mayhem

The first annual middle school field day was a rousing success despite the chilly weather!  Students participated in a variety of games, including relays, an egg toss championship, a color run, and the pickle launcher!  Students were grouped into mixed teams of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.  Teams were encouraged throughout the day to show Christlike character in their competitions throughout the day, and they did a phenomenal job!  Words of encouragement were shared within and amongst teams.  Thank you to all the parents who volunteered in different capacities, and thank you to our amazing teachers for all they did.  We can't wait to do it again next year!

The RCS One Act team was selected as the District Champion for their performance of  "The Curious Savage" by John Patrick.  They will advance to the One Act Play State Championships on November 11-12 at the Cailloux Theater in Kerrville.  We give all glory to God in these successes and are humbled and blessed to be able to represent Him and RCS for the seventh year in a row at the State Contest. We received some excellent comments from the judge.  In addition, individual awards were as follows:

Thanks to all of the supportive administrators, teachers, students, and parents that made this possible.  We began with a group of individuals, with varying degrees of experience, different grade levels, and different social circles.  We now have a team of kids that are more like family, with mutual respect and admiration all around.  

We have also seen such growth in their acting and technical capabilities!  For several members of the team, this was their first show ever! They also were respectful of other teams and walked around mingling and getting to know them after the contest.  This is a fabulous group of students, and we are so proud of them!

On Saturday, November 9th, the team will be giving a free performance for parents, students, and staff. The performance will take place on the stage in Building H and will begin at 3:00 pm.  And then...it's on to State!

Pinnacle 2019

Thank you for praying that this year’s Pinnacle week would be an extraordinary experience for your children. All I can say is, "Wow!" What an incredible four days! Words cannot express what a privilege it was for me to witness the Holy Spirit moving in and amongst our high school children. On the last night, we had at least 10 students accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and dozens more recommit  their lives to Christ. Hallelujah! Below is a summary of the closing remarks made by our speaker, Mike Satterfield, whose daily messages centered on overcoming sin, storms, and self.

Mike began his closing message by asking the students, “Where do we go from here? How do we continue to overcome sin, storms, and self?” He then challenged students to continue to “overcome” by committing to the following: reading a chapter of Proverbs daily, reading a daily devotional book, and “fasting” from complaining for 40 days. Mike went on to advise students, when struggling with sin, storms, and self, to simply look in the mirror and remember that Jesus died for the glory of God and for the rescue of YOU.

Again, I am in awe of the power of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. I look forward to seeing how God continues to move in the lives of these magnificent students.

Varsity Football Headed to the Postseason

The 2019-20 Varsity football team has a record of 7-1. After suffering an early season loss, the Eagles have rallied to win 7 games in a row and are going 2-0 in district so far. We have standout players all over the field and all athletes on the team have contributed to the success of this program. Apart from wins and losses though, the true success of this team is their character.   This football team hangs out together, sticks up for each other, and encourage each other on and off the field. We are truly blessed to be able to witness this Godly character in a group of young men. 

Jersey Mike's in Cypress has graceously sponsored our team this year and each week outstanding players of the game are chosen for the special honor of Jersey Mike's Player of the week.  The pictures below are the young men that have been recognized each week this season. 

This Friday, November 8, we will be playing Legacy Christian from Beaumont here at home and we will celebrate our Seniors as it is the last regularly scheduled game of the season!   Join us as we cheer on the football team this Friday!
