First meeting----check!

The girls had a great first meeting! They all got to know each other and I got to learn a bit about each one if them! We went over the Girl Scouts basics and planned our activity for our next meeting-which will get us on the road toward earning our first badge! We collected a week's worth of (clean) paper trash from each household, tore it all into tiny pieces into a 5 gallon bucket and filled with water and left it to soak. Our next meeting is Monday, October 3rd at 6:15pm where we will take that bucket'o'soggymess and learn to recycle it into a gigantic sheet of paper-that we will also do something special with! The girls Aldo had "homework"!! To get each of them involved in our blog, they are to write a sentence ot two stating why they want to be a Girl Scout and what they can do as 4th and 5th graders to help our environment. I can't wait to hear what they come up with! Also, they were tasked with bringing an empty cereal box to our next meeting, that we can decorate individually (more recycling! Yay!) to organize each girls' take home papers,etc. Each girl also got instructions on her uniform needs and Journey book, craft supplies needed to fill our troop supply box, and supplies needed to construct our troop first aid kit. Glad to have to intro the fun can begin!

Remember Parents! We would love to have your help and/or participation at all meetings/events. I just require the volunteer background form and registration prior to your participation.

Coming soon! Nut sales!!
