We need a few volunteers for our annual Back to School BBQ on Thursday, September 4th. If you are able to help, please contact Nina Brailean at rcs.development@myaccess.ca or call 306-775-0919 extension 4. A schedule can be viewed here of the time slots we need filled.

Found!

An electronic gaming device was found at the school some time ago. If one of your children is missing such an item, you may contact the school office at 306-775-0919.

High School Hours Change for 2014-2015

To accommodate the provision of Choir class before school start time, we have modified our school day schedule as indicated here.

Correction

Please note that the Back to School BBQ flyers sent home with your child(ren)'s report card indicated that there will be a mission team meeting on that evening for grades 8 to 10 - this should have read for grades 10 to 12. We apologize for the inconvenience this error may have caused.

Elementary Mathletics

Your child has been encouraged to use Mathletics over the summer. They can review skills learned this year to prepare for the next school year. Your child has access to 24/7 access to Mathletics through a unique username and password which was sent home with your child. Contact Sandra Lichtman with any concerns, questions or requests for passwords.

Homestay Families Needed for Fall

RCS is looking for homestay families for our international students for the coming school year. Being a homestay family is a great experience and also an opportunity to share your faith with our international students.
