RCS Weekly Celebrations Newsletter

October 14, 2022

We highlight different events, accomplishments, and programs that are happening around our school community on our website and Facebook page. Here are some of the recent stories we have shared:


Bring your Family to P.E. Week!

​The week of October 3 through October 7 was Bring your family to P.E. Week! The week is used to share and promote information and knowledge with students and families about the importance of physical education and living a healthy lifestyle. Each building found unique ways to promote physical activities for students and their families. ​

Throughout the year, the RCS Physical Education Department works hard to continue sharing this important message, creating fun and new activities for all to enjoy. Click here to read more about our incredible Physical Education Department.

We are incredibly thankful for all the families who came out to participate in this wonderful week! ​

This past Friday, a group of juniors and seniors attend the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce Manufacturing Day! Students toured the facilities, attended discussion panels, and learned about the different career opportunities at Owens Corning and SABIC. Big thank you to these companies for organizing and hosting this event! It was a wonderful chance for students to explore job opportunities in their local community.

The third-grade classes from Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary attended a field trip to The Little Red School House in Coeymans Hollow recently. Mr. Brooks shared stories and answered the many questions that the students had. School was a lot different many years ago!
