Dress Code

As the weather turns colder, we want to remind you of the RCS dress code for lower school.

Outerwear such as hoodies, sweaters, fleece wear, and sweatshirts must be ordered through Lands' End with the RCS logo or the Booster Club.

A solid color heavy coat (non-RCS) may be worn outside on those really cold days.

The handbook reads ... "Electronic Watches (PK-5) are not appropriate for students to wear during the school day."

Examples of electronic watches are Apple watches, Android watches or watches on which you can play games, send or receive communications and watches where students may store data that would allow them to cheat. Also, any device or item that tends to distract students from instruction are considered inappropriate and may be taken up by the teacher. Lower level Fitbit watches which count steps and tell time should be appropriate as long as the student is not playing with them.

Elementary Chapel is every Wednesday 8:15-9am. Please join us anytime!

Chapel Dress: Top: Red polo (or dress) Bottom: Khaki (no plaids)

Thankfulness or Ingratitude: The Prodigal Son

Weekly Memory Verse Quiz on Wednesdays - No Quiz this week

Test Entire Passage on Thursday

Proverbs 3:1-14

"My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments,

For length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you.

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart.

So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.

It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce;

then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine."

My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline or be weary of his reproof,

for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.

Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding,

for the gain from her is better than the gain from silver and her profit better than gold.
