Inclement Weather Closing

For information about school closings, listen to radio station WRJN – 1400 AM, or any Milwaukee television station. Racine Christian School uses an alert system that will place automated phone calls from the school office to all parents in the case of school closure or delay. We can add additional numbers to this call list if you’d like grandparents, babysitters, etc. to receive them as well (just let the office know).  If the Racine Unified schools are closed or planning a delayed start due to weather conditions, Racine Christian School will be closed for the entire day.

RCS Coffee Mugs make great gifts! Only $8!! Available in the school office. Call to get yours today. Supply is limited. 634-0961

We are so pleased with the many athletic accomplishments of our RCS Bobcats over the years! However, our trophy case is overflowing, and it is time to discard several decades’ worth of trophies.  Trophies dating from 1980 until 2010 will be on display at our home basketball games Dec. 10 and Dec. 17.  If, for nostalgic reasons, you would like to have one or more of the trophies, please feel free to take it/them home with you.  Any trophies left after Dec. 17 will be disposed of.  If you know of RCS graduates who might like a trophy, please let them know. If for any reason you can’t come personally to pick up a trophy you want, call Owen Van Swol, 262-412-7277.

We had GREAT attendance at our first home game last week. We hope to see you again this week! 

We had such a fun night at RCS for our 1st home basketball game and unveiling of our new bleachers!  It was a great night of basketball and cheerleading and a wonderful dedication to Cal Verbrugge, a man who devoted himself to Christian education.  There was a brief presentation to Pauline Verbrugge who so generously donated the bleachers in memory of her husband, Cal.  

RCS is in the process of updating our alumni list so that we can keep our graduates up to date on what’s happening at RCS.  If you have children who have graduated from our school (no matter how long ago!), please help us by emailing contact information (address and email) to Dave Van Swol at or by calling the school office (634-0961). If your children have kept in contact with their classmates, please ask them to pass that information along as well.   Thank you so much!  

Is needed from 12:10 – 1:25pm daily.  Please consider signing up by calling or stopping in the office.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!
