Wednesday, January 12th (5:30 PM - 8:30 PM) Delinquent families who do not meet with the Finance Committee will not be allowed to start the Second Semester of school. Ultra Foods Receipts WOW! We have collected almost $45,000.00 in register receipts from Ultra Foods! This will result in a gift from Ultra Foods of over $2,000. It would not have been possible without your support! If you still have receipts to turn in, please do so immediately. Our deadline to turn in receipts is this week.


Market Day There is still time to order Market Day and receive a FREE Book Bag Buddy with any purchase from the January order guide. Every purchase you make helps us reach our goal and benefits your tuition balance. Order online at until 11pm CST on 1/15/2011. Delivery date is Wednesday, 1/19/11. Thanks for your support.

Family Games Night is sponsored by NCLB and will begin at 4:15 p.m. and will end at 6:15 p.m. Each teacher will have games in their room for you and your child to play. Only children accompanied by an adult family member will be allowed to attend. After school care children will not be allowed to attend until an adult family member arrives and accompanies them. Collect a sticker from each classroom in order to attend the pizza party with food and treats in Mrs. Flory’s room. Each child who collects their stickers will receive a game from Mrs. Flory. Then, stick around for the CPTA Town Hall meeting and meet the new principal candidate at 6:30 p.m. RCS will also be holding an open house for prospective parents so why not invite interested friends, neighbors and relatives to come as well. All parents are invited to the Game Night, Open House and Town Hall Meeting on January 20th. The class which has the best turn out (by percentage) on the 20th will get a field trip, a free style day, the day of the field trip and a special lunch that day. If classes tie the percentage, we will give both classes the same prize.
