Dardenne GS Troops

2013 Fall Newsletter

Good day Dardenne Troop Leaders!

Hello Fearless Leaders,
I have put together this sweet little e-newsletter to keep in touch with GS leaders from Dardenne. The information provided in this newsletter is intended only for GS members holding leadership positions from Dardenne Elementary. You may forward this newsletter to your co-leaders but please do not share this newsletter with your troop families or outsiders. Thank you!

Its Girl Scout registration time and that means I need to update my troop database. Leaders, I need you to reply back to me with the following information so I can better serve our Girl Scout families at Dardenne:
  1. Are you a returning troop or has your troop disbanded? If your troop is disbanding, please state a reason.
  2. Troop number, leader & co-leader contact info (name, address, email, phone)
  3. Troop Grade and Level for the 2013-14 school year (example: 2nd grade/ Brownies)
  4. Number of girls expected to return this year
  5. Number of new girls, if any, you will accept
  6. What day/time of week you meet and frequency (example: 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 6:30-8:00pm)

Registration Information

Leaders, You no longer need to complete and turn in a registration packet! That's right, no registration forms or payments to collect, yay! Remind your existing troop members (girl and adult) that the deadline to register or renew Girl Scout Memberships is September 30. They can register online by going to the Girl Scout of Eastern Missouri website. It is strongly encouraged for individuals to register using the online process. The only exceptions are if they are applying for financial assistance, does not possess a credit/debit card and/or have an email address. If that is the case, they will need to fill out the appropriate forms and follow the mailing instructions. It is the individual members' responsibility to register and submit forms. Click here for link to additional forms to download and print. (You will find registration and financial assistance forms under section: Registration, Scholarship and Background Checks). Contact me if you have any questions regarding the registration process.

Dardenne Registration Night

I have put in a request to hold Girl Scout Registration Open House at Dardenne on Wednesday, September 25 from 6-8pm (still waiting for approval from District office). Registration Night is for new registering scouts. Existing leaders and members are not required to attend , however I am asking for volunteers (troops or individual adults) to help facilitate activities for the girls coming out to register. If you or your troop would like to help out please email me and I will contact you with additional information.
