July 2019

Dear Parents and Families,

In June I took some of my grandchildren to “Happy Hour” at Sonic. As we were driving down Route 66 they noted some crosses which were reminders of the deaths of individuals who had been killed in accidents. By the time we got to Sonic, I was telling them about markers that were on I-40 between Gallup and Albuquerque that reminded me of former students Joshua Landavazo and Maria Hoelscher who were killed in separate car accidents in 2002 and in 2006. With tears streaming down my cheeks I ordered slushies at the drive up window. While I still ache about these premature deaths, I also was able to tell my grandchildren of God’s promise of resurrection and how God already takes horrible things and makes something good come out of them. Both Josh and Maria impacted lives for God’s kingdom in both life and in death. My grandchildren had a lot of questions and listened intently to the story.

 

This year we are exploring the theme “See the Story, Live the Story”. Our prayer is that students will be captivated by God’s story of creation, grace, love, forgiveness, rescue and redemption and that they too will become people of creation, grace, love, forgiveness, rescue and redemption. I believe that a Rehoboth Christian education is a great way to both see and live the Story. My prayer is that every discipline will point to  the story of our Triune God  and that every staff person invites students to engage in that Story. My prayer is that students see markers throughout the year that will trigger the questions and they will hear honest assessments of the pain and Christian hope of the world in which we live. What a Story!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story….

Psalm 107:1-2

Parents of RCS Elementary Students


Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Rehoboth Christian Elementary School!  I hope that you’ve had a chance to rest, relax and rejuvenate for the upcoming school year.  My name is Peter Ippel and this will be my second year as the elementary and middle school principal at Rehoboth.  I attended Rehoboth from 4th-12th grade and spent 11 years teaching in public schools prior to coming back to Rehoboth as the principal.  We are blessed to have most of our staff members returning this year!  We do have a few new staff members in the pre-K program.  We welcome Alex DenBlyker and Daphne Nelson as assistants in the 4 year old pre-K classrooms. Praise God for the provision of new and returning staff members who come to help your children find their place in God’s story.  

We also  want to welcome all our new Pre-K and Kindergarten students and their families to their new school experience as well as a number of new students and their families to Rehoboth in grades 1-5.  Our enrollment in Pre-K, and 4th and 5th is solid at the time of this writing, but we do have room in those grades as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  So if you know someone interested, invite them to apply!   We are excited about each student and the families represented, and hope to create and foster a school climate where God is glorified and each of us grow and learn more about our Creator.

This year our school theme is “See the Story, Live the Story.” Our theme verse comes from Psalm 107: 1-2a and says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.  Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story…”  At Rehoboth, we know that each child we serve is created in the image of God.  We also recognize that God’s story doesn’t end in Bible times.  As image-bearers, each child continues to play a part in God’s story and we look forward to walking together as we find our place in God’s story.  Each month, we will explore different ideas of what it looks like to be part of God’s story and the roles that we play.  It is our prayer that this will transform each child and family during this upcoming school year!  

Finally, a few early dates/events to remember:

  1. The first day of classes is on Thursday, August 8th for grades 1-5 and Thursday, August 15th for Pre-K and Kindergarten.  (Remember we start at 9:05 on Thursdays and 8:05 on the other days)

  1. On Tuesday, August 6th, all families of Rehoboth are invited to a “welcome back” supper at 5:00pm in the High School Life Center (LC) followed by a welcome back event (and association meeting) in the high school.

  1. All parents of students in grades 1-5 are invited to an orientation in your child’s classroom on Tuesday, August 6th, starting promptly either at 4:45 PM or 6:45 PM.  We expect a parent to be at one of these two offerings so you can meet your child’s teacher(s) and learn of expectations from that teacher. Please plan to attend.  

  1. Pre-K and Kindergarten – A reminder that Pre-K and Kindergarten classes will officially start on Thursday, August 15.  The kindergarten and pre-school teachers will be conducting home visits during the first week.  They will be contacting you to set up a time if they have not already done so. 

Please feel free to contact myself or your child’s classroom teacher if you have concerns or needs. You may stop by for a visit the week before school if you like.  Once again, welcome to a new school year and we are excited to see you and your child soon.

Sincerely,

Peter Ippel, Elementary and Middle School Principal

Rehoboth Creed


We go to Rehoboth, a Christian school.

We believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  We believe the Bible is God’s Holy Word which is completely true.  It is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. (Psalm 119:105)

God created me in His own image, and He loves me beyond my imagination (Psalm 139).  He calls me by name (John 10:3).  He wrote my name on the palms of His hands (Isaiah 49:16)!

At our school we are each different, but we are one in Jesus.  We respect each other and honor the gifts that God has given each of us.

At Rehoboth we learn that every inch of our world belongs to God!  Every subject is His. I will work hard to learn and grow in knowledge and in wisdom.

I will follow Jesus Christ and listen to His voice. He calls me to use words of kindness, to respect God’s creation and all authority, and to encourage and serve the people around me.

“We will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” (Isaiah 61:3)

Welcome 1st graders!

Below are some items that your child will use throughout the school year.

Supplies.jpg

Thank you for purchasing these items. I know it can get pricey, but these items will be useful for us in different ways. Look forward to meeting you all!

Ms. Clarissa Johnson, First Grade Teacher


To Second Grade Parents:

I pray that you are enjoying the summer time. I am already looking forward to the first day of school and teaching your child!  It’s July already! Soon we will all be watching for those back-to-school sales, wondering what the teacher wants your child to bring to class on that first day. Well, here it is! A complete list of the items that I feel your child needs for grade two. I look forward to meeting your family on back-to-school night!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Lorrinda Horace, lhorace@rcsnm.org

School Supplies for Second Grade

I’d like the folder to be orange, since it makes it easier to spot a wayward folder lying  in the hallway, on the bus, or on the playground easily. It also helps our Daily Dose parent volunteers who assemble our folders daily - each grade has a specific color.

Please write your child’s name or initials on all school items.

       

Optional:  a set of headphones to be used in our listening center or on the ipads.

Also, that extra pair of slippers from home which will be stored at school for those muddy and wet mornings when we leave our shoes out in the hallway.

       

      Welcome to 3rd Grade!

Dear Parents and Families,

My name is Miss Becca Hibbler and I will be your student’s 3rd grade teacher this year at Rehoboth. I hope everyone has been having a wonderful summer and is eager to start back up in the new school year very soon!

A little about me, I am embarking on my sixth year of teaching at Rehoboth. I had a wonderful time in 3rd grade last year and am looking forward to another great year of excitement, discovering, and learning together. I am originally from Michigan, but have fallen in love with the New Mexico mountains, sunshine, and people! I love hiking, running, mountain biking, exploring, and just relaxing with friends.

Some highlights to look forward to this year will be learning about communities, multiplication, exploring science through experiments, learning how to become authors, and so much more! I am looking forward to meeting and working together with each of you this year in 3rd grade.

Blessings,

Miss Becca Hibbler

Parents of RCS High School Students


Summer greetings to all of you! My name is Dan Meester, and as the new high school principal, I am excited to meet and get to know each of you this school year. My own family and I have been in Gallup for almost a month, and we are enjoying our time while feeling very welcomed by this community. I grew up in San Jose, California, and 2019-20 marks my 25th year in Christian education. I started out as a high school English teacher before moving into administration, where I served as a college counselor, a superintendent, and now a high school principal in a career that has taken me to schools in Illinois, California, and Michigan before answering God’s call to Rehoboth. My wife, Betsy, and I have two children—Juliana (8th grade) and Thijs (5th grade), and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Rehoboth Christian School family.

This year, our school theme is “See the Story. Live the Story.” The Bible holds a vivid narrative for us—including God’s purposes for this world and His invitation to partner with Him in His Kingdom work. It’s a story that is still going today, one in which each of us plays a critical role. I look forward to unpacking that story with your students this year!

Below is a list of important announcements and upcoming events to help us start the year off well.

New High School Students

Sometime between July 31 and August 7, all new high school students must meet with Mr. Huizinga, school counselor, to create their class schedules.  Please call the high school office (726-9632) to set up a meeting.

DRESS CODE


Some of the most often asked questions are about RCS dress code and hairstyle rules. Please use this summary of the handbook to help make good decisions about hairstyles and the clothing purchased for school activities.

It is quite difficult to make an exhaustive list of acceptable school dress, therefore, guidelines are given below with the understanding the principal has the final authority/decision regarding acceptable school dress based on the overarching standard being neat, clean and modest/tasteful in relationship to our Christian ethos and school environment.

  1. Shirts and blouses must have a collar and/or sleeves.

  1. Except for the ear, visible body piercings are not allowed at school.

  1. Headgear of any kind, including hats, hoods, bandanas, and/or hairnets, may only be worn outside school buildings.

  1. Accessories including, but not limited to, studded bracelets, belts, or necklaces; belt loop or chain wallets; and extended belts are not permitted on campus.

  1. Pants/shorts/jeans/overalls worn in a manner that exposes underwear or bare skin may not be worn. They should also be of a moderate fit, neither too tight nor too large and baggy.  Pant cuffs must not drag on the floor or have a width that exceeds the length of the student’s shoe or be wider than the thigh.

  1. Tattered, torn, shredded, or threadbare jeans are not permitted.

  1. Shorts or skirts which are higher than the student’s extended arm and fingers when standing straight, are not allowed.

  1. Spandex shorts are not allowed.  Leggings (tights, yoga pants, jeggings, stretchy pants, spandex, etc.) can only be worn while covered by shorts, skirts, or tops that meet the extended arm guideline above.

  1. Also not permitted are shirts or tops which expose the midriff, cleavage or undergarments, shirts or tops made of see-through material, tights, or fishnets.

  1. Clothing, tattoos, or accessories which advertise, display, or promote any drug (including tobacco and alcohol), sexual innuendo, violence, weaponry, satanic symbols, profanity, bands of any kind including Christian, skulls, blood, hate, or bigotry towards any group or are offensive or disrespectful to other individuals are not permitted.

  1. Hair and facial hair need to be moderate, well-groomed, and of a normally occurring hair color. (This means no highlights, even temporary, of pink, green, blue, etc.)

Parent Volunteer Program

(PVP)

Parent Volunteer Program (PVP)


We are excited to begin Rehoboth’s first Parent Volunteer Program (PVP) at Rehoboth.  We know that getting parents or guardians involved in the school is important. It benefits the students, the parents and the school. This is the reason that this year we are asking each family to give 10 hours of volunteerism throughout the school year.

Why is it beneficial for parents or guardians to volunteer?  

What volunteer activities are possible?

How does PVP work?

Hello RCS families,

We are excited that we will be having a new Director of Transportation. His name is Mr. Jonathan Terborg. His family is in the process of moving and will be starting his position in the middle of August. We will share Mr. Terborg's contact information once he begins at Rehoboth.

In the meantime, Mrs. Camilla Lynch will be serving as our Interim Director. You may contact Mrs. Lynch at 505-726-9632/9635 (office) or  505-862-1952 (cell).        

Mr. Bob Ippel,  RCS Executive Director

  Transportation Updateblack logo no background.png


We want to welcome you to a new school year!  We are so blessed to have your children attend RCS and we want to assure that if your child rides the bus, we will do everything we can to keep them safe. Below are a few guidelines we’d like to remind you of:

 

  1. Please make sure to update your contact information in RENWEB. Each year we have parents that we cannot reach because there Renweb contact information is not updated.

  1. If you as a parent have to make changes to your child’s bus arrangement for the day, we ask that you PLEASE call the school secretaries, HS, ES, or MS before 2:30. This ensures that we have enough time to contact the student with the proper permission slip for the bus driver.  **The bus driver will NOT allow a student to get on a different bus without that permission slip.

  1. Please take some time to review with your families the following “stranger danger” rules:

  1. Our policy here at Rehoboth for dropping off kids at their respective bus stop is to make sure each child gets off at exactly the same stop everyday; if walking home, the distances are usually less than one mile; if being picked up, our bus drivers know each vehicle and parent and/or guardian.

May God always keep us safe and protect our children.

If you haven’t already filled out a Household Application for Free and Reduced lunches, please do! The Federal government WANTS to feed your kids!  We need a NEW form each year!  This will determine how or if we charge for your children’s meals. Please fill out the application online as a part of this mailer or see Darlene Stewart at the Administration office for a paper copy.

For the parents who are reduced or full pay status for the child’s meal accounts (pursuant to the Household application findings).

A note from Chef Monica:

We look forward to offering a less processed menu this year.  We are preparing more scratch cooked meals!!!  We will be locally sourcing items and will be offering more USA grown produce and foods.  We will continue with the bars and the foods that the kids really enjoyed last year!”

As always, it is exciting to start a new school year.  Phyllis, Chef Monica and I look forward to feeding your children, they are a blessing to us!  

Sue Eddy, Food Service Manager

School Communication


There are several communication efforts made between school to parents throughout the school year.  Below are several forms that we use and also welcome communication from parents to school.


Parent News:

Every Thursday, the Parent News is emailed and each school gives their announcements along with any events. Departments often give information as well.

Email:  

Most of our staff have a school email and can be found on our school website.  

  1. Go to our school website: www.rcsnm.org
  2. Under the tab “Academics” in drop down menu select “Staff Directory.”

ParentsWeb:

When you sign up for ParentsWeb, you have access  not only to the school directory or to update your personal information, but to also view your student’s grades and attendance.  This is also needed to re-enroll for the next school  year when it becomes available.

If you are a current parent and have an additional student admitted for the upcoming school year, you should already have access.

To begin a ParentsWeb account:

  2. On the right, you will see in tabs your enrolled student
  3. When you select your enrolled student, you have the left sidebar selections to choose from to view for your student.

Text Messages:

Messages sent by text include snow delays or change of information on events or any other info that needs parent’s immediate attention.  Text messages go out to parents who have selected to receive them. Each parent has to set up their own preference within ParentsWeb.

To view your preferences:

  1. Log into your ParentsWeb.
  2. On sidebar click arrow or  family Information.  
  3. A drop down menu appears (this is where you re-enrolled) but on the right side under the Family Information Bar you see parent and student info. Next to that are two tabs: Contact Info and Preferences
  4. Click Preferences
  5. This is where you will see what you selected regarding emails, director name and info and parent alerts you agreed or disagreed to use.

To make changes to your preferences:

  1. Log into your ParentsWeb.
  2. On the left sidebar click “School Information”
  3. Click on “Web Forms”
  4. Under Custodial Parents, select which parent your are changing preferences for  and  click “Custodial Parent Form”
  5. Scroll down and under Parent Preferences bar, you will see the list of preferences that will say “yes” or “no” and how often to receive the auto email gradebook progress report (only for HS students at this time).  
  6. If any changes were made to this form, don’t forget to click “save” at the bottom before moving out of form.
  7. This is also the location you make any parent updates and remember to click save at the bottom if any changes were made.

Setting Up Preferences For New Parents:

You will need to sign up for ParentsWeb first. Then follow the same instructions for viewing and changing your preferences above.

Parent Directory:

Rehoboth in the past has made available a paper booklet of our school directory. We have now moved to electronic directory. This directory is made up of our parents contact info.  You can now find parents contact info on your ParentsWeb.
