It’s crazy to think we are less than 2 weeks from Thanksgiving. As we get closer to Thanksgiving I try to reflect on all that I am thankful for. Today, and every day, I am thankful for our RCA teachers and staff. Our staff cares about our RCA students and their love for them goes beyond their education, they are selfless, they put in a lot of effort to meet the student's needs, and most importantly they all share a desire for our RCA students to have a relationship with Jesus.
Teacher Conferences At the Parent Orientation I shared that we encourage you to be in the know about your child’s academics. Upper Learning Centers, if you haven’t already, you should be hearing from your child’s teacher to schedule a conference.
During the day teachers are very busy tending to the needs of their students. If you contact a teacher during the day, please give them time to respond. If it’s an emergency please contact the office. Your questions and/or concerns are important to us so we encourage you to schedule a time to meet with the teacher so they can give full attention to your needs. Having a scheduled meeting allows the teacher time to make arrangements to have someone cover the class so the student’s needs in the classroom are not put on hold.
Canned Food Drive We are grateful for the food that has been brought in thus far. All food donated will go to the RBC food pantry, which will then be distributed to families in need. Also, don’t forget we have a friendly competition going on between classes. Whichever class brings in the most canned food and non-perishable food items wins a Pizza Party and they get a week of wearing jeans to school.
After School Pickup It’s wonderful to see parents and students developing relationships and we understand that sometimes after school is the best time to chat or hang out. To keep everyone safe, we are requesting parents and students to hang out in the playground area. To avoid kids from getting hurt we don’t want them climbing the tree or running around playing chase in the courtyard (flagpole area) and parking lot area. After school, everyone is invited to hang out in the playground area while you chat and watch your kids play.
Noon Early Release This Friday is an early release day. Please make arrangements to have your child picked up at noon. Teachers will only be on campus for half a day.
RCA Thanksgiving Holiday Break October 20th-24th is our Thanksgiving Holiday break. School will resume on October 27th. We hope and pray everyone has a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!
In His service,
