As salaamu alaikum,

The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be this Friday, March 24, 2017, 6:15 – 7:45PM, inshaAllah. Please be timely. Arrivals after 6:45PM are disruptive to troop meetings and strongly discouraged.

DAISIES

  • Daisies will work on earning the Vi petal, “Be a sister to every Girl Scout”. In the spirit of celebrating multicultural awareness we wanted to start right in our very own troop. Many girls have a mix of cultures that they are exposed to at home and/or through their extended families. We are encouraging the girls to share a phrase in another language if they know one, to dress in clothing that represents that culture, and to bring in a light dish reflecting the tastes of that country.

BROWNIES

  • The Brownies will have a guest speaker discussing philanthropy and will be completing their Philanthropist badge.
  • The Wonders of Water Action Project blanket throws will be available for purchase.

JUNIORS

  • Juniors will finalize and present the results for their Get Moving! Take Action project.
    • Vendor Selection team: work with Sis. Amina (PGMA Facility Director) to find a company that will pick up recycling from PGMA and how much the company will charge. (Asima, Aya)
    • Bin Selection team: find and price at least three types of recycling bins to place inside PGMA. (Amina, Nusaibah, Raqeebah)
    • Site Selection team: use a building floor plan of PGMA to determine the number of bins required and the best locations to place the recycling bins. (Badriya, Fatima, Hannan, Hidaya, Indya. Maryam G., Maryam M., Safiyyah, Sajayah, Zina)
    • Outreach & Education team: create drafts of posters to publicize PGMA’s new recycling program. (Aya, Deena, Farah, Fatima, Hannan, Laila, Maryam M., Shahed, Sajayah, Suundus, Tasneem)
  • If there is enough time Juniors will continue working on their Simple Meals badge.

CADETTES

  • The Cadettes’ Girl Scout Cookie goal is to sell a minimum of 1,500 boxes (75 boxes per Cadette). We are in the home stretch! Cookie sales end March 26.
  • Cadettes are going lodge camping together inshAllah! Lodge camping is a way for girls to experience camping without being exposed to the elements overnight. Girls will work on badges and participate in team building activities. We will be focusing on activities designed to build leadership and communication skills among the girls. All Cadettes going camping must turn in permission forms and payment this Friday for the Spring Lodge Camping & Outdoor Team Building, Mar 31 – Apr 2. Final deadline!
    Cadettes who are not going camping should be prepared to work on the Animal Helper badge unless they have discussed with Sister Rahmah or Sister Aaliyah an alternative badge to work on.
  • Turn in permission form and payment for the Cadette Archery & Outdoor Art Apprentice Workshop, Apr 29

MULTIPLE LEVELS

Girl Scout Cookie Season Begins December 19!

girlScoutCookieZoneGirl Scout trips, badges, ceremonies, activities, and programs cost money and selling cookies is every troop’s most important fundraiser. Money from our annual cookie sales helps off-set the cost of these activities.

Did you know our troop receives $0.60 per box of cookies sold? That means every 100 boxes sold raises $60. Last year only 39 of our 110 PGMA Girl Scouts sold cookies. This year we need every girl to sell at least 10 boxes of cookies, help sell at our cookie booth, or both. Each level (Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors) will have at least one booth sale. We cannot do this without parent volunteers.

Parents, we need you to:

  • Attend the Cookie Information Meeting on Friday, December 19, at 6:15PM
  • Help your daughter(s) sell cookies
  • Pick up your daughter(s)’ cookie order
  • Turn in all money for cookies on time
  • Optional – volunteer to chaperone girls at cookie booths
  • Optional – help pick up our troop’s cookie order on February 19, 2015

Girls Scouts, we need you to:

  • Set a goal for how many cookies you want to sell
  • Sell cookies to your family, friends, teachers, neighbors, parent’s coworkers, etc.
  • Remind your parents to turn in your cookie orders & cookie payments on time
  • Optional – volunteer to sell at a troop cookie booth

More details will be given at the Cookie Information Meeting, Friday, December 19, 6:15PM, inshaAllah.
