Football Homecoming Week

 

September 24th - 28th

Football Homecoming is at hand. Our Rossville Christian Academy football team will be playing against Memphis Business Academy on Friday, September 28th beginning at 6:30 p.m. For the week of Homecoming, there are a lot of things going on involving our students, including dress-up days, hall and float decorations, and contests. On the morning of Friday the 28th there will be a small parade of floats created by the middle and high school classes. During the halftime of the big game, our senior Homecoming queen will be crowned.

 

 

GO JIM GO!!!

 

Rossville Christian Academy is very excited this year to once again be working with Jim Jaggers, WREG News Channel 3 Meterologist, and the Go Jim Go Cycling Team on their 333 mile trek to help raise money for Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. It This is Jim's 13th time leading this 6-day telethon on wheels. So far since its creation the Go Jim Go event has raised more than $2 million for Le Bonheur and hopes this year to add another goal amount of $333,000. It takes the efforts of thousands of Mid-Southerners to make this a great success and RCA is proud to be a part of it. Jim will be arriving at RCA on October 2nd.
