*******Dear Parents,*******

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.

Thanks for your cooperation with this.

Bible

Bible story: The Birth of Jesus

Character trait: Love for Jesus and others

Memory verse: Psalm 139:1-12 "Oh Lord you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down. You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in, behind and before. You have laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there. If I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me. Your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me, even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day for darkness is as light to You."
