Reminder: Back to Troop Tomorrow, Sep 29

Back to Troop 2017-2018

It’s time to get back to troop! The first troop meeting of the 2017 – 2018 Girl Scout year will be Friday, September 29, 2017, 6 – 8PM, at PGMA inshaAllah.

In order to attend troop meetings, every Girl Scout must:

  1. register or renew their yearly registration with the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital,
  2. turn in a completed and signed Girl Health History Form for 2017-2018,
  3. pay troop dues: $50 per girl; $40 per Daisy (cash or check)

Parents/Guardians are encouraged to come to PGMA as early as 5PM on Friday, September 29, to take care of these essentials before the start of the troop meeting at 6PM. Girls will not be permitted to attend troop meetings without registration, health forms and dues.

PLEASE BRING HOUSTON HURRICANE HARVEY DONATIONS

TheĀ Girl Scout slogan, which has been used since 1912, is “Do a good turn daily.” The slogan is a reminder of the many ways girls can contribute positively to the lives of others. We will be collecting new undergarments, feminine products, new and nearly-new hijabs, and cash donations for shipping fees for the hurricane victims in Houston, Texas. We have a contact in Houston who will have the items transported to those in need. We would like each girl to bring something to donate at this Friday’s troop meeting insha Allah.

On Your Own: Girl Scout Engineering Saturday, Oct 14

Girl Scout Engineering Saturday (GSES) is a program for local Girl Scout troops in Maryland and the Washington metropolitan area. Cadettes (grades 6-8) engage in fun hands-on activities and earn the Women in Engineering Girl Scout Engineering Saturday patch.

The goals of GSES are:

  • To expose Girl Scouts to engineering related activities
  • To introduce young women to professional career options in engineering and science
  • To provide university students with opportunities to develop and implement engineering related activities, and to enhance communication and leadership skills

The GSES program is October 14, 2017, 10AM – 2:30PM. The Girl Scouts will be divided into three groups to rotate through a series of activities; each activity designed to increase awareness of a different type of engineering discipline.

Registration for the Fall 2017 GSES event date is now open and is on a first come, first served basis. There is a $20.00 registration fee for each participant to cover the cost of lunch, patches, and activity supplies. Apply online here: https://futureumdengr.wufoo.com/forms/z1yx6yx51i5regz/
