Troop Management and Leaders want to again welcome all 101 girls to Troop 3480! Yes, that’s right: 101 girls from Daisies to Ambassadors. We have them all, mashaAllah! We also welcome back last year’s parents as well as new parents.
Since so many missed the parent meeting in September, we want to inform or remind the parents of several things:
- At Capacity. Due to troop leader/girl ratio requirements, we are not able to accept any more girls in our troop this year. Please do not refer anyone to the Troop Managers.
- Dues. Dues are required of all girls. What do they cover? Dues pay for pins, badges, patches and activities. Parents with multiple girls can pay in installments: some now and some in January.
- Registered Volunteers Only. Parents are not allowed in meetings. If you would like to participate in troop meetings, you must register as a volunteer through GSCNC and pay for an annual Girl Scout membership. Troop managers will be happy to assist you with that process.
- Uniforms. All girls should be in uniform for meetings and trips, unless otherwise advised. A lot of organizations require girls to be in uniform in order for the program to be free or discounted. The Girl Scout uniform also identifies us as a group. See the uniform page for more information.
- Troop Meetings. Meeting attendance and participation in trips will help your daughter have a fun and successful year. She can’t expect to receive patches, badges and awards without participating.
- Be On Time. Speaking of meetings, being on time is key for meetings, workshops and field trips. Girl Scout programs are geared toward helping the girls to be independent and accountable. Being on time is an important part of accountability. Meetings start at 6PM and end at 7:30PM, every other Friday.
- Trips. There will be no refund on pre-paid trips.
- Learn About Girl Scouts. Take the extra step and learn about Girl Scouting in America. Visit the Girl Scouts of America website. Read their reports on girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics). Learn about the founder, Juliette Gordon Low, check out books which highlight the experiences of girls in Girl Scouts.
