School phone replacement has arrived. Our number has not changed, it's still 404 - 660 - 0066. Thanks for your patience!
We happily welcome our new student, Jenny (3rd grade) and her mom and dad, Carol and Will to the RCS family! Glad you are with us...may your school year be blessed!
Talked with the insurance group this morning, paid our premium, and the new phone should be here no later than Wednesday afternoon. Thanks again for your patience; Sonya's phone follows in the post below if you need to reach us before then.
The screen on the school cell phone was accidentally cracked yesterday; it is unreadable. I am working on getting it fixed, but it may take a day or two. Please contact us for interviews via 404-786-4334, which is Sonya's number, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your patience and attention to this matter.
With the start of the school year being pushed back to 8/11/14, our summer hours from now through August 10 are by appointment only. This will help keep our overhead down during this week and the first week of August. Thanks for your understanding and attention to this matter!
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!
