Happy Thanksgiving, Bulldogs! Have a safe and healthy holiday. Classes will resume on Monday, November 30.
‘Tis the season and time to Deck the Halls at RCS! From Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4, the PTSO is sponsoring an ornament collection event for the entire school! Celebrating this holiday is going to be a bit different for our students/faculty/staff and we’d like to spread some Christmas Cheer throughout our school! PTSO is inviting the RCS family to join us in decorating our Christmas trees this year! If you’d like to participate, simply bring an ornament to help trim our trees. We’d love for that ornament to be something that represents a hobby, a favorite Christmas tradition or the school. Trees will be located in the school lobby, in front of the school library and in front of the gym. Anyone donating an ornament can bring it to Ms. Graham at the front desk and we will ensure its spot on the school trees! Pictures of the decorated trees will be posted on the PTSO Facebook page as well as shared by the school social media outlets! If you have any questions, please send an email to RCSPTSOBulldogs@gmail.com or message us through the RCS PTSO Facebook page!
We have a couple new videos on the RCS #GivingTuesday page! These are from a couple of faculty members. Check it out! https://www.roxborocs.org/page/giving-tuesday.
RCS is holding a contest for students who submit a picture or a video of themselves for inclusion in the Yearbook. Selfies, photos a friend or family member has taken -- anything appropriate will be considered. Videos will be linked in the Yearbook via QR code. In this crazy time of COVID, it is difficult for the yearbook staff to get photos showing students' faces. This contest is a way of making sure everyone is represented in their yearbook! To enter the contest, submit at least one photo or one video to the rcs.journalism Instagram account. If you don't have Instagram, submit to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be three prizes: a $50 gift card to Walmart, a $25 gift card to La Cocina, and a $10 gift card to Tricias. Submit your photos and videos before January 15, 2021 to ensure your place in the contest!

RCS alumni Zac and Tyler Denny, along with their dad, Marc Denny, are helping the eighth graders clean up behind the school in preparation for an outdoor classroom area. The eighth grade team received a $15,000 Go Grant from the North Carolina Outdoor Heritage Advisory Council for the creation of two outdoor classroom areas. These areas will include picnic tables, a portable projector screen and projector, gardening supplies for beautification and a butterfly garden, sun shades, and other equipment. Teachers will utilize this area as an outdoor learning space where students can connect with nature and learn about the natural world with hands-on lessons and activities. Zac and Tyler demonstrate one of the many ways in which RCS alumni stay involved long after they have graduated. #GivingTuesday
