  • RCF 3rd Annual Read-a-Thon

    Thank you again for a wonderful Read-A-Thon!  This year we saw an increase in participants who combined to read over 270,000 minutes and raise more than $9,000!  Because we hit our whole school goal, the teachers will dress as favorite literary characters sometime in January!

  • Walk for the Homeless was a GREAT success!

    RCF raised $3,715!

  • We're Going Home!

    RCF will be closed two days prior to winter break (Dec. 22 & 23) to allow teachers and staff to pack and move into our brand new school!
