RSG Round Up
After School Program NEWSLETTER/February 2021
Dear RSG After School Program students, families and supporters,
With 2020 well behind us now, and January in the books, we are really looking forward to this month. Spring is right around the corner, and we are already starting to feel renewed in our mission!
Of course, February in Pennsylvania can often be one of worst winter weather months, so please make sure that you are signed up for Remind to receive messages about program cancellations, changes and important announcements. If you are receiving this newsletter digitally--you are already signed up, so thank you! If you need help or need to change your contact/emergency information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are happy to announce that most of our sites are now back to in-person services! We are working with each district to follow all health and safety guidelines. Of course, for any students that are not yet attending in-person school, we continue to have the option of virtual program available. If this interests you, get in touch with your program coordinator or email us to get the Zoom link.
Please enjoy this educational, holiday-themed content that we have curated for you and your family, but most importantly, please keep us in mind if you know of a student who needs some extra help with academics, homework or is looking for a safe, fun and educational place to go after school.
Thank you for your continued support!
The RSG Team
February 2, 2021 - Groundhog Day
Did you know that the famous groundhog's home is right here in Pennsylvania? The event dates back to 1887 and has roots in German folklore. If you have never been to Punxsutawney, it is worth a visit (when it is safe to do so). "Punxsy," as it is called locally, is a town that has fully embraced its mascot, Punxsutawney Phil, AKA "Chuck." You will see the groundhog theme everywhere, including in cartoon-like statues that line the streets and decorate various businesses and buildings.
This year's event will take place on Gobbler's Knob, but due to COVID-19, there will not be a live audience. Instead, you can watch the event by visiting the official website (that is, if you are awake at 6:30 AM!)
February 12, 2021 - Lincoln's Birthday
February 14, 2021 - Valentine's Day
February 15, 2021 - President's Day and Washington's Birthday
