Troop Meeting This Friday, May 6


As salaamu alaikum,

The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be this Friday, May 6, 2016, 6 – 7:30PM, inshaAllah. Please be timely. Arrivals after 6:30PM are disruptive to troop meetings and strongly discouraged.

Note: Friday, May 20, 2016, will be the last troop meeting of the 2015-2016 Girl Scout Year.


  • Brownies will be doing an arts and craft project while practicing the nasheed for the May 14 performance at our troop’s interfaith outreach event. Girls should learn/practice Tala Badru Alayna.
  • Since there will only be one more troop meeting after this Friday, Brownies who have not yet turned in their scrapbook or completed their song assignment for the Quest Journey Take Action project should do so at this troop meeting.


  • Juniors will be practicing their presentations on notable Muslim women for the troop interfaith outreach event on May 14 inshaAllah.


  • Troop meeting fun day! Wear work out / comfortable clothes for Science of Happiness & Eating for Beauty with Sis Tracey Abdul-Wahab of It’s All Food LLC. Girls who have not earned the badges will have take home work which will be due at the next (and final) troop meeting.
  • Breathe Journey Take Action project: Cadettes should bring their updates on what is the plan, who is participating, how girls will achieve it, and when it will happen.




  • This Friday is the final day to turn in permission forms for the Meet a Girl Scout Muslimah Interfaith Outreach, May 14.

  • Girl Scout Early Bird Registration: Back to Troop for the 2016-2017 Girl Scout year will be Friday, August 26, 2016 inshaAllah, with troop meetings every other Friday as usual. After the initial August 26 troop meeting, the next couple troop meeting dates will be September 9 and September 23, inshaAllah. If your girl plans to return to Girl Scouts, parents must pay her $15 registration fee at one of the final meetings for this year, either May 6 or May 20 inshaAllah. There will be no exceptions.

  • Save the Date: The Service Unit Encampment will be Friday, October 7 – Sunday, October 9, 2016. Once registration opens, parents and girls need to register quickly because there will be limited spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost will be $30 per girl/adult. There will be a Daisy program. Brownies and Juniors will be lodge camping while Cadettes will be tent camping.


  • Pay your Girl Scout’s troop dues: $45 for Daisies, $60 for all other levels. If needed, dues can be paid in installments. Dues pay for badges and pins, help supplement some activities/trips, and also help support the troop web site, and printing expenses. (Parents pay for fun patches.) In order to camp, dues must be paid in full. For financial assistance contact Sis. Kesha.
  • Take a look at the 2016 Girl Scout Summer Camp Brochure to find the camp that’s just right for your Girl Scout. Spots are still available. Camp programs should be chosen based on the grade your Girl Scout is currently in. Financial assistance is available.girlScoutCamp2016
