Newsletter - BITS & PIECES

January 23, 2020


Citrus Fruit Sale:  We will be selling the delicious Honeybells, Navels, and Ruby-Red Grapefruit on Sunday, January 26, from 10 am to 2 pm.  The fruit truck will arrive at 8 am on Friday, January 24.  If you can help unload, it would be greatly appreciated.


Pickup:  Please remember when picking up students that you should pull up to the front spot when you are in the front of the line.  Please do not stop in front of the door.  When you do so, it causes dismissal to go a lot slower.


Lucas Legos for Kids!  RKS will be participating in a community service project called “Lucas Legos for Kids” during the last 2 weeks of January.  This project is led by International Children’s Care and began from a young boy’s love of Legos.  Lucas Nelson, a 13 year old Adventist boy, suffering from leukemia, wanted to do something positive when there is so much negative in the world today.  That’s when he decided to pout Legos in the hands of orphan children so they could enjoy them, some even for the first time!  So, on January 17th, students were given gallon sized Ziplock bags to fill up with new or used Legos to bring back to School by February 3rd.  Once collected, we will ship them to International Children’s Care for distribution.  Those students who bring back to school at least one galloon sized zip-lock bag full of Legos (a bag that can barely be closed) will get to participate in a specially scheduled “popcorn/punch playtime!”  Will you join us in supporting Lucas in making this world a better and happier place?


Education Sabbath:  On Sabbath, February 22, there will be an ALL School program at the Martinsburg SDA Church.  Children need to arrive at 10:30 am (unless they are greeting, in which they need to be church by 9:15 am) in concert attire (white tops, black bottoms).  Students will be sharing music and conducting  the entire church service.  Families are welcome to come to our Bible study classes that begin at 9:30 am for all ages.  A vegetarian fellowship meal will follow the service. 


Talent Show Sign Up Sheet:  Our Talent Show will take place on Saturday evening, March 7.  If your child or you as a parent, or even your whole family would like to participate in our Talent Show, please sign up by February 7 on the sheet posted on our hall bulletin board.


“Snow Days are the Best Days” Shirts:  Our Snow Days shirts look great on our students and staff.  If you did not purchase one for your child but would like to, please let Kim Harris know.  The cost is $22.  We ordered extra shirts in a few different sizes.


School Plan for Inclement Weather:  When Berkeley County Schools close or delay school for inclement weather, we will do the same. Please remember that our school calendar does not match Berkeley County Schools calendar.  If you listen to the local radio stations, 90.5 FM, or go to the website: they will announce when Berkeley County Schools are closed or delayed for weather. We only follow them for inclement weather.


Staff Development:  School will dismiss at noon on Monday, January 27, for staff development.  After School Care will run from 12:15-5:45 pm.  Lunches will not be needed on this day unless your child is staying for After School Care.


Stamp Club:  Stamp Club will meet on Tuesday, January 28, from 3:15-4:00 pm.


Re-enrollment:  Re-enrollment time for your student(s) will begin in February.  Please stay tuned to the communications you will be receiving to take advantage of our early re-enrollment for next school year!
