Dear RHLS Parents,
Welcome to a new school year at Red Hill Lutheran School (RHLS). An outreach ministry and mission of Red Hill Lutheran Church, RHLS continues to be richly blessed as we provide God’s Word to our students, parents, and community. Our theme for 2021-2022 school year is “We are God’s Masterpiece” based on Ephesians 2:10, For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. This is a very appropriate theme verse for all of us, that we will be focusing on this year as a church and school community.
At RHLS, we want students to know that while they are in the world, they are not of the world. We seek to develop in them a Christian worldview through our thoughtful integration of biblical truths and principles in all lessons. It is our goal that our students will develop a sense of philanthropy and compassion for others and shine as lights against darkness.
We are blessed with extremely gifted teachers and staff members who, with their varied God-given gifts and talents, serve one Lord, Jesus Christ by sharing the Gospel message of eternal salvation with everyone (students, parents, colleagues, and the greater community). In the past several years RHLS has had six of our teachers voted Top 10 Teachers of Orange County and received recognition for their accomplishments in OC Parenting Magazine. Additionally, last year RHLS was recognized as a 2020 Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. We are extremely proud of this award.
In order for all RHLS teachers to be fully equipped to guide students, we are committed to providing teachers with the most current, researched-based professional development opportunities. We believe Proverbs 18:15, which says, “An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.” Teachers at RHLS enthusiastically embrace professional growth and development, because they know that we all are designed to continually grow and learn. This growth mindset is something that is modeled to students in the hope to encourage a lifelong love of learning.
This handbook is intended to provide information on RHLS for you and your child. We ask that you complete the Acknowledgement and Agreement Form in your FACTS Parent Portal indicating you have received, read, and agree to abide by this document.
