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.


The 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.

PGMA Troop 3480 Has Launched With 40 Girls!

Alhumdullilah, what a turn out! The troop leaders of PGMA Girl Scout Troop 3480 could not have been more pleased with the excellent attendance at the inaugural meeting held last Friday, 18 May. We now have 40 registered girl scouts in our troop and we are beginning to plan summer and fall activities, Insha-Allah.

We are still accepting registration for girls who are currently in the 4th grade and up. Girls in these grades — Juniors, Cadettes and Seniors — are invited to register at the May 25th meeting. The meeting starts at 6:00 pm, so girls who still need to register should arrive 15 minutes early. WE WILL BE STARTING ON TIME, Insha-Allah.

Due to the high interest in girl scouting within our community and our desire to be in compliance with the girl-to-adult volunteer ratio, we are no longer accepting registration for Daisy and Brownie scouts until September. If your daughter is in the 2nd or 3rd grade, please contact the troop manager directly at alia [dot] kemet [at] gmail [dot] com to be placed on the waiting list.

A special note to parents: Thank you all for bringing your daughters to the inaugural meeting. Your enthusiasm and dedication to the girls is contagious and we are looking forward to harnessing that energy and involving many of you in the Girl Scout family!

Don’t forget to check out the Donate page as there are many items that your daughter’s troop is in need of. Also, get your girls in the proper uniform. We would like all girls to be looking sharp in compliance with the uniform policy on or before the start of June.

Thanks for all of your support. Together, with Allah’s (swt) guidance we will work to build girls of faith, courage, confidence and character and who make the world a better place.
