What To Know Weekly @ RCS (March 20th-24th)
- School News
Welcome to "What to Know Weekly" where each week you can find reminders and updates about events happening around our school.
Here is what our Royals will be up to this week (March 20th-24th):
Monday, March 20th - Friday, March 24th
STEM WEEK (all-day)
All week our students 1st-8th Grade are participating in STEM week. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. A couple of weeks ago, STEAMBoat Studios visited our school to demonstrate different activities related to neuroscience in the form of illusions as well as different ways of exploring the senses (sight, sound, touch, and smell). Here are the topics for this week;
- Escape the Tower: Students will explore balance and center of mass and use their knowledge to successfully send a top-heavy load down a zip line.
- Marble Roller Coaster: Students will investigate friction and kinetic and potential energy through marble roller coasters and use what they have learned to complete a final challenge that follows specific guidelines about travel time and movement shape.
- Suspension Bridges: discover different types of suspension bridges and how they compare to truss, beam, and other bridge designs. In a challenge students will design their own suspension bridge to meet specific criteria such as load, span distance, and material cost, and then test to failure.
Tuesday, March 21st - Thursday, March 23rd

Water Baptism Introduction to Students (during chapel)
RCS Water Baptisms are returning!! After witnessing and celebrating 25+ students committing their lives to Christ last year (2022), we are in excitement and continually praying for what God is going to do through our students, staff, and school this year!
With just over a month before the date, Pastor Preston and Mrs.Turner will be introducing the topic of Water Baptism to our students during chapel times on Thursday this week. Next week, there will be a more in-depth conversation where the message will be centered on Baptism.
Baptisms are open to students in 3rd-8th grade and will be held during their chapel times on April 27th. More information and sign-ups will be sent out to parents this week.
Friday, March 24th
Grandparents Day (10am) & Legacy Dinner (7pm)
**In order to properly prepare for both events, RSVPs were requested prior to March 8th and are now closed**
These two new events are designed to share the vision of how Renton Christian is developing each student, more plans and details of the RCS High School, and how we can partner together in each of these endeavors.
Grandparents Day is a time of fellowship between RCS Grandparents, RCS Grandchildren, and our Head of School, Mr. McMillan. If you registered for this event, please meet us at 10am at New Life Church (Renton) where you will hear from Mr. McMillan and enjoy a Chick-fil-A lunch alongside your RCS Grandchildren.
Legacy Dinner is our way of sharing with current families and friends of RCS the details of our new High School including the vision, location, and timeline, as well as the many ways you can support this process. If you registered for this event, please meet us at 7pm in the Main Auditorium of New Life Church (Renton) where our time will be shared over a meal.
