*******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.


******Smart Watches*******

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 is 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.

Bible

Bible story: Jesus chooses His helpers

Character trait: Be thankful to our parents for all they do for us, and to God for all He does for us

Memory verse: Psalm 139:1-16 "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. For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful. I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be."
