If you have more than one student attending RCS Elementary, we have provided you with two opportunities to meet with your students’ assigned classroom teachers. The information given in Session 1 will be repeated in Session 2. If you have one student, please use Session 2 to return to the Main Sanctuary for anything you were unable to complete.
This evening is for Parents only k-5th grade. Please make arrangements for students and younger siblings . However, a movie will be provided at $3 per child ages 5 to 11 for those who are unable to make other arrangements. Proceeds will benefit RCS student ministry projects.
We request that at least one parent attend this important evening!
Open to the public, the RCS Spring Awards Concert will feature four bands from Resurrection Christian School performing music from the concert band genre at the Lincoln Center in the Main Performance Hall.

It promises to be an exciting event with styles to fit everyone’s preference and will conclude with an award ceremony recognizing achievement this school year.

Resurrection Christian school is excited to announce that Mark Roggy has agreed to be the new Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. After 22 years coaching high school football in Weld County District 6, RCS offered an opportunity too perfect for Roggy to pass up. “I see it like this,” Roggy said, “I have been in a very good spot, and I am leaving to go to a very good spot. This was a good move for both me and my family.”
The RCS seniors recently returned from their missions trip to Belize. View their video about the wonderful message they spread and in what ways God touched their lives.
The RCS Symphonic Band (8th and High School), will be performing as part of the halftime show at the Colorado Ice Arena Football game on Saturday April 13th at 6pm.
All of you are invited to show your support to these students as they experience what it will be like to perform on a football field in front of a crowd for the first time. Tickets are $18.00 at the Budweiser Event Center. The RCS Band will receive $5.00 for every ticket sold at this game. This promises to be a great opportunity for the students, as well as a unique fundraising opportunity.
Yeah! It’s May!
May, a month of transition…transitioning from school schedules to summer break, spring to summer (hopefully, anyway), and then there are end of the year class parties, field trips, and graduation and promotion ceremonies!
RCS Pre-K Amazing Grapes graduation ceremony will take place Friday evening, May 17, in the Main Sanctuary. 100 little people will march into the sanctuary to “pomp and circumstance”, loud and proud, and line the stage sporting purple and gold graduation caps. They will sing, dance, and recite their pledges, while moms wipe tears from their eyes wondering where the last five years went. Other moms will wipe a tear from their eye wondering how in the world they will keep their children busy all summer! (: Yes, it is a little dramatic, but it is a significant mile marker in their little lives. The big world of Kindergarten is just a few short months away!
Many parents ask us about summer programs and how they can help their children stay prepared for Kindergarten. Here’s a couple of thoughts:
~Rez Fellowship’s VBS is June 10-14, 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Call the church office at 667-5470 for more information.
~RCS Preschool’s SEW (Spiritual Emphasis Week) is June 24-27, 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. for 3-6 year olds. Contact the preschool office at 612-0655 for more information.
~Read. Read. Read. Studies show that children that are read to often have higher reading and comprehension levels. It’s also good cuddle time, too!
~Sidewalk chalk, water painting on the driveway, and pudding or shaving cream finger painting are always a summer treat, and it also helps in developing fine motor skills!
The month of May is always busy, and it takes a lot of effort to stay focused on the important things…but it is well worth it. Take mental snapshots of each event and enjoy the journey!
