Clubs & Activities


1000 Book Club: This club offers 3-6 year olds in the RCS community the opportunity to be a well-read child. It allows parents to borrow a 1,000 books--ten at a time--to read to their children. The books are stored in a tote bag and are housed in your child's elementary school. The timeline for borrowing books is flexible, but our hope is that a child will complete the program by the beginning of second grade. To register for the program, please visit your child's elementary school main office.
