Preschool/Elementary Information

School Supplies

All RCS students in grades preschool through 5th do not need to purchase school supplies; however, students will need to provide their own backpack. 

  • RCS 1st – 5th-grade students should have an NIV Bible.
  • As a reminder, all students entering the 3-year-old program and 4-year-old program need to bring a tri-fold nap mat to their classrooms on the first day of school.
Car Tags

This year we are continuing our Car Rider Pro pick-up system. This means you must have a car tag in order to pick up your student after school in the pick-up line. Please take a moment to ensure you still have your car tag from last year. If you need a new car tag or would like to purchase an extra one, please contact Kelli Owens at kowens@rejoiceschool.com as soon as possible. Cost for the replacement or additional tag is $5.00 per tag charged to your Smart Tuition account.  New students will receive two car tags at Meet Your Teacher Night on Tuesday, Aug. 20.
