A Busy Fall Season at Rock Creek

I hope your family had a wonderful break this past weekend. As I drove through N.C. to visit my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, I was reminded of God’s amazing grace and how blessed I am to be principal of your children. The colorful trees, cooler days and time spent with family make the fall season one of my favorites.

The next two months are busy at Rock Creek, so I thought it might helpful to review the following:

Christmas at CAL – We need your help! We are two weeks away from our biggest fundraiser of the year. We need every parent to give an hour of their time for this event to be successful. It will be a great day with many new attractions, but it can't be done without YOU! There are many ways you can help. Please access SignUpGenius at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4da5ad2ba57-christmas to volunteer. The money raised will go towards campus and classroom needs.

Operation Christmas Child - This mission opportunity will be announced during our Oct. 29, chapel. Rock Creek students will have the ability to share God's love with other children throughout the world. For more information about this program and important deadlines, go to:  http://caschools.us/operation-christmas-child-chapel-announcement-oct-29. Boxes will be collected during chapel on November 12.

Lastly, Open House is scheduled for Oct. 30. This is a great opportunity for prospective elementary and preschool families to learn more about our campus and the importance of a Christ-centered education. You recently received five invitation cards. Please share these with family, friends and neighbors who may be looking at educational options for their children. Your personal invitation is a testimony of this great campus!
