Parents of students planning to attend RCS in the fall: to avoid the $35 late fee, please make sure your first tuition payment is received by the school no later than August 1st. Thank you for being good stewards regarding your child's education!
The complete school calendar is now available on our front page. Once again, I do apologize for any delays. The last couple of weeks have been hectic!
Wow, what a BUSY summer! It is exciting times around here as we've added a couple more students to begin the fall school year, and are hoping for more. As I get ready to head up to Tennessee next week, I wanted to make our new families, as well as all of you, aware of some major changes scheduling wise at RCS for the 2014 - 2015 school year:
- The school calendar has been revised! We will open the '14-'15 school year on August 11th, not August 4th, as previously stated. This aligns our calendar better with DeKalb County and also allows us a bit more time to get diagnostic testing done prior to the start of the school year.
Please note: All diagnostic testing for all incoming students MUST be complete before August 1st in order to ensure that your scholar has their PACES by 8/11/2014.
- The first day of school, 8/11/,14 will be a half day as this day will also serve as Parent / Student Orientation. This will allow us to go over the Parent / Student handbook, Discipline Policy book, explain to you thoroughly how the PACE system works, discuss how to access and use the online grading program we've chosen, and how our merit store system will work this year. Parents: if you cannot make the 8/11 orientation, there is a required make-up orientation on 8/16/2014. Please make plans to attend!
We're excited as we've had a lot of interest in the school - if you've been thinking about joining the RCS family, now is a great time to make the change!

At juy duty today...scholars working from home. I will post again when done. Please feel free to call and leave a message for me regarding school or camp enrollment and I will return your call as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding!
Q-Tip War is coming! $2 (money goes in our scholarship fund) for a duo to play - most Q-Tips in your opponent's container wins a small prize! Hope to see you there! It's on, rain or shine!
If you've been trying to call us here and could not get through please try again. Got to school this morning to find no bars and an "emergeny calls only" message. It took me an hour on the phone with T-mobile customer service to figure out why we weren't getting any signal this morning. Can you say stressed? I knew you could!
We will be at Tucker Days on May 10th, from 9 AM - 5 PM, signing up scholars for both Catch Up Camp and the 2014 - 2015 School Year! Our booth will be located at 1st Ave and Main in Tucker in the Furbusters parking lot. Come out, have some fun, meet us, and sign your scholar up!
Thanks to our local School Box, Monkey Joe's, and Starbucks for supporting RCS and giving us a place to display our camp and school information!
