Current Activities

We starting our meeting by reciting the Girl Scout law and the Girl Scout Promise and the Pledge of Allegiance.

We passed out our troop recipe books. We hope that you and your daughters will take the time to try a new recipe.

We also discussed the differences in our Math Fun homework and passed out the Emergency Center sheets that were collected at the last meeting.

We completed our last activity for the Math Fun Try-It. We made an hourglass out of water bottles and filled it with sand. It took 20 minutes for the sand to empty out of one bottle and fill the other.

We also handed out Healthy Habits Brownie homework that is due at our next meeting.

We then enjoyed cookies from Tess.

We discussed upcoming field trips and fundraisers.

We ended the meeting with the Girl Scout Squeeze and choosing Kaper Chart duties.

Coming Up……..

The next meeting will be on March 23rd right after school.

We have invited Debbie Cockrell to come in and discuss our last fundraiser.

We will also be trying to finish up our Healthy Habits Try-It. We will be discussing the important of hand-washing and not smoking.

We have sent home permission forms for field trips and activities that have been recently planned. Please return permission slips by the date noted to reserve your daughter’s spot.

We have also sent home a final announcement sheet that should include field trip information for the rest of the year until school begins in the fall. I am still checking on the hiking field trip on June 30th. I will let you know something soon.
