Troop Meeting This Friday, Feb 13

troopMeetingFriday

The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be this Friday, February 13, 6 – 7:30PM, inshaAllah.

BROWNIES

  • Brownies will continue working on the My Promise, My Faith Pin. Brownies should bring in two or three inspirational quotes by women of any faith. During the meeting they will write the quotes on card stock paper and bring them home to post where they can see them.

JUNIORS

  • Turn in permission forms for National Geographic Food Exhibit field trip, THIS SATURDAY, Feb 14
  • We completed work for the girls to earn the My Promise, My Faith Pin at the last troop meeting. Some girls still need to turn in their quotes from Quran, Hadith or Seerah about courage and strength to complete the requirements.
  • We’ll continue working on our Get Moving! Journey. Girl should:
    • bring some colorful paper trash, such as a magazine, supermarket ads or wrapping paper. We’re going to make paper beads!
    • bring a piece of packaging, torn or cut so that it can’t be easily identified. The idea will be for the rest of the Juniors to guess what the packaging once held.
    • Read pages 19-21, 26-35, 41-43 in the Get Moving! journey book and then bring ideas for personal and team energy pledges. If your girl doesn’t have her journey book yet, bring $7 to purchase it from the troop leader, pick one up at the Girl Scout Shop, or buy it online.

MULTIPLE LEVELS

  • Overnight Lodge Camping, THIS WEEKEND, Feb 13 – 14
  • Girls should sign up for Cookie Booth sales which begin in our local area on February 20. Girls whose parents have not signed them up for individual cookie sales are allowed to sell at Cookie Booths. Girls who want to Sojourn to Savannah must sell cookies, individually and/or at Cookie Booths.

PARENTS

  • Please contact Sister Rolanda at this Friday’s troop meeting to sign up to bring snacks. Troop managers request that parents provide snacks for at least one troop meeting during the Girl Scout year.
  • The cookies are coming! Our very pregnant Cookie Mom needs help picking up our troops’ cookie orders on Wednesday, February 18. She needs people to meet her in Bowie to load cookies and then unload at her home in North East DC. Many hands make light work. Email her at troop3480cookies [at] yahoo [dot] com or catch her at this Friday’s troop meeting.

Troop Meeting This Friday, Jan 30

troopMeetingFriday

The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be this Friday, January 30, 6 – 7:30PM, inshaAllah.

DAISIES

  • Will begin work on the Zinni petal which focuses on being considerate and caring. Daisies should bring a new or gently used toy to donate to a local charity. Girls will be learning to think of others through words and actions.

BROWNIES

  • Brownies will be doing YOGA with Sister Alia Alim. Please have your Brownie wear comfortable clothing for stretching.
  • Brownies will begin working on the My Promise, My Faith Pin. They will be finding values in the Girl Scout Promise that occur in Islam. They will learn that Girl Scouting and their faith have a lot in common. Here are the first few steps Brownies should complete by the January 30 troop meeting:
    1. Assist your Brownie selecting a line from the Girl Scout Law, then find an ayat from the Quran, story, song or poem from Islam with the same ideas.
    2. Have her talk with her family or friends about what that line in the Girl Scout Law and the ayat, story, song or poem from Islam have in common.
    3. She can ask a woman in her own faith how she tries to use that line of the law in her life.
    4. Bring the ayat, story, song or poem that she chose and what she learned to the troop meeting on January 30.

    If you have any questions, please contact Sister Tamika Jones at tjones122288 [at] gmail [dot] com
