Reminder: Troop Meeting Tomorrow, Friday, Feb 16

troopMeetingFridayTrans

As salaamu alaikum,

The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be tomorrow, Friday, Feb 16, 2018, 6 – 8PM, inshaAllah. Please be timely. Arrivals after 6:15PM are disruptive to troop meetings and strongly discouraged.

BROWNIES

  • Turn in permission forms and $14 payment for the Making Games & Dancer badge program at Montpelier Mansion, Sunday, Feb. 25.

JUNIORS

  • Juniors will begin working on their Savvy Shopper badge, part of the Girl Scout Junior financial literacy program. Food and water, clean clothes, a place to live: These are things everyone needs. A closet full of shoes, a new desk, tickets to a movie: These are things people want. But how do you figure out what you need and what you want? It might not be as easy as you think! Juniors will:
    • explore needs and wants,
    • look into why we want what we want,
    • find out what makes people happy (or not!) with what they buy,
    • learn how to decide what to buy, and make a plan to buy something you need or want.

    When the Juniors have earned this badge, they’ll know the difference between needs and wants and will be able to smartly save money for both.

SENIORS & AMBASSADORS

  • Those who have submitted their initial Girl Scout Cookie orders should be prepared to pick up their cookies at the troop meeting this Friday.
  • Sis. Bahiyyah will do a Career Day presentation for the girls.
  • Upcoming Events:
    • March 9: Seniors Sisterhood Journey begins with a movie (TBD) and treasure box creation.
    • March 10: Ambassador Justice and Senior Sisterhood Journey-in-a-Day

MULTIPLE LEVELS

PARENTS

  • PGMA Girl Scouts is recruiting troop leaders who would like to be actively involved with building girls of faith, courage, confidence and character. Please connect with Sis. Alia if you are interested.

Reminder: World Thinking Day Festival, Feb 10

As salaamu alaikum,

As Girl Scouts, we are part of a special group of girls and women that stretches across the world. On February 22 of each year, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from 146 countries celebrate World Thinking Day. (We’re having our festival celebration a little bit early.) World Thinking Day is a way to celebrate with girls all over the world by doing the same activities. The 2018 World Thinking Day theme is “Impact.” Making an impact means having a strong effect on something or someone.

This World Thinking Day, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides will think about what it means to make an impact on the world—and celebrate being part of the global sisterhood that is Girl Scouts + Girl Guides. World Thinking Day is an opportunity for all Girl Guides & Girl Scouts around the world to develop an understanding about sister scouts worldwide, their countries and their cultures.

We will be donating hats/scarves/gloves/mittens to area schools to make an impact in our own community. Please bring the donation items with you to the festival.

On the day of the event travelers will go from country to country to read displays, sample food, get a SWAP or create a craft. Travelers will also carry a passport which will be stamped at each country by the troop representing that country.
