The STEM lab, hydroponic garden and 3D printer were just a few of the exciting stops in Representative Cord Byrd's visit to RCSA Elementary.

Representative Byrd toured the school led by two safety patrols. He stopped in multiple classrooms and participated in lessons on engineering, life cycles and subtraction. Byrd also learned about the RCSA school system and its ten-year anniversary.

Thank you, Representative Byrd for taking the time to visit our school! Our door is always open.

RCSA is so proud of our student heroes for helping raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which supports blood cancer research.  On Wednesday, January 17th students made donations and dressed up as their favorite super heroes.  This fundraiser continues throughout January.
