Early Release Day Program

Thank you to Peggy Schmitt, Mary Grimm and Sheila Bowell, the volunteers who coordinated the Early Release Day Program for seven years.

Since 2009, the Early Release Day Program provided supervised activities from 1:30-4:30 pm on those days when the Riverdale School district dismisses at 1 p.m. The program was usually held at St. John's school building in Muscoda. In May 8, 2013, coordinators Peggy Schmitt and Mary Grimm retired and hoped that a new coordinator would volunteer to provide a similar program. After a two-year break, the program resumed through the efforts and generosity of Sheila Bowell and her team of volunteers.

Through the years, the Early Release Program activities included educational information and guest presenters, crafts, constructive play activities and time for homework--all in the presence of caring adult role models. RCoH provides a safe and fun environment for youth who might otherwise be left on their own.
