Webelos October News

We'll Be Loyal Scouts

Attention Parents!

Please continue to help your scout with memorizing the Scout Law and Scout Oath. Scouts can test their knowledge of the Scout Oath and Scout Law at http://www.boyscouttrail.com/tests/webelos-boy-scout-test.asp.


In October, we will be working on the FIRST RESPONDER, Webelos Handbook, pg 59. In this adventure, scouts will put the Scout mottos, "Be Prepared" into action by learning about first aid.


Included in this newsletter are some YouTube videos that review some common first aid scenarios. I encourage you to preview the videos or watch with your child.


Please help your son make emergency plans for your home and build a first-aid kit.


This month, beginning October 14, we will begin having the boys teach and lead our patrol. Please scroll ahead to see the assignments.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Erica Roden, (817) 776-1017, or Katrina Curtis, (817) 597-8182 (until we sustain a new Webelos leader)
