After School Program NEWSLETTER/March 2021

Big picture

Dear RSG After School Program students, families and supporters,

Spring is in the air! (Well, more than likely, snow is still in the air by the time you are reading this, but warmer weather is coming soon...we hope).


March is an important time for learning. By the end of this month, we will be 3/4 of the way through the school year. Let that sink in for a minute. With the end of the third marking period coming fast, now is a good time to check up on grades and contact your teachers and RSG program coordinator if you need additional support.


After school programs can be an important and convenient part of education. Not only do we work closely with the school-day teachers and administration to provide homework assistance, but we also offer additional educational activities, ongoing support and a safe, fun environment right in the school building.


To find out more about our programs and services, email chelsea@respectivesolutions.com.


Best regards,


The RSG Team

Fun Fact!

Happy New Year...well, if we were in ancient Rome that is!


"March, the third month of the year, was named for the Roman god of war, Mars. In the early Roman calendar, March (or Martius) was the first month of the calendar year. As March brought the first day of spring with the vernal equinox, it was the start of new beginnings."- Old Farmer's Almanac
