Opportunities for RCS Elementary Students; Developing the Whole Child
One of the values that we have here at RCS is that God made every child with a unique temperament, skills, abilities, passions, interests, and academic abilities. As a result, it has been my desire to provide many opportunities for our children so that they can express who God has made them. I am so excited that the following after-school clubs have been formed for students with different interests. I have listed the sponsor of each of the clubs below. I would like to express my appreciation to these people for giving of themselves so selflessly. They put in several hours each week to build into our children. I truly look forward to what God has in store for future clubs at the RCS Elementary School.
