  • I have found it best to wrap the top of the pencil one time around with a patterned washi tape or duct tape. This helps students to identify their pencils and keep track of them. 

  • Please do not send scissors. I have plenty!

  • Students will still need to bring a water bottle, lunchbox, and backpack to school each day.

  • RCA brings to my mind thoughts of grace, love and family. My family has been blessed to meet and know other families that attended before our kids enrolled. By His grace, we learned of the school and the wonderful environment it was. The love that is poured out for the kids, and by the kids, is amazing. Being a part of RCA is truly like being a part of a family. I feel that my child is treated not just as a student, but a part of a family, part of the Body of Christ. Knowing the love, care and instruction that he receives is a true blessing. — RCA Parent Read more
