Asalaamu Alaikum Parents
ALL PARENTS: ATTEND A PARENT COOKIE MEETING ON DEC. 6 OR DEC. 20, AT 6:30PM
Girl Scout Cookie Season will begin December 20, 2013 and lasts until March 30, 2014. Selling Girl Scout Cookies is our troop’s BIGGEST fundraiser. As our troop has grown, we pray that every girl participates in selling cookies, individually and/or at cookie booths. Our girls have told us that they want an end-of-year trip. Selling Girl Scout Cookies can fund this exciting trip.
What can selling Girl Scout Cookies teach your daughter?
- Cookie Sales teach girls to set goals and achieve them. They set cookie-selling goals and work to achieve those numbers.
- Cookie Sales teach girls about how much things cost. They get a real-world grasp of the value of money and finance in terms they can understand.
- Cookie Sales helps girls to take ownership of their troop and its goals.
Come discuss Troop 3480’s goals with Cookie Mom, Sis. Zakiyah, in the lounge at every troop meeting during the month of December at 6:30PM. Parents must attend a cookie meeting in order for their girls to participate in Girl Scout Cookie sales, both individually or at cookie booths. Only girls who sell Girl Scout Cookies will be able to attend the cookie sales parties which will reward the girls who have worked hard to meet their cookie sales goals.
If this is your Girl Scout’s first time selling cookies make sure that she attends Cookie College on Dec. 14. Cookie College will allow girls to test the cookies, find out which kinds they like, and give them tips on selling. Girls who have sold cookies before can attend the Cookie Rally on Dec. 7, where they can earn financial literacy badges.
Let’s get ready to raise money for our troop and reward our girls for achieving big goals.
DAISY AND BROWNIE PARENTS
Parents of Daisies and Brownies should meet with troop leaders and troop management at 6:15PM in the Brownie’s room. This short, but important meeting is intended to help troop leaders better work with the girls in these troops.
The last troop meetings of 2013 are Dec. 6 and Dec. 20, 6 – 7:30PM.
All parents and children who remain at the Masjid during troop meetings should wait in either the musullah or lounge area so as to not disturb the girls and troop leaders during meetings, and keep hallways clear, quiet and safe.
