Troop 13354

Hello Girl Scout Families:

We had a wonderful time today learning about the Girl Scout cookie program and have earned the Count It Up Leaf.

We had fun:

• Learning about how much Girl Scout cookies cost

• Learning about the different types of Girl Scout cookies

• Setting cookie sales goals


Continue the fun at home:

• Help your Daisy meet her sales goal by selling cookies to friends and neighbors.

• Practice counting change when making purchases at the store.

• Complete the homework sheet on setting cookie goals in their green folders.

• Look through the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting with your Daisy to find other activities you can try at

home.


Thank you for bringing your Daisy to Girl Scouts!

COOKIES!

Your scout received her cookie packet today. She can officially begin to sell cookies. I've created a new page on our scout website entitled "Cookie Info". It is under the private pages, so only troop member who login will be able to see it.


This page has all of the information you will need about the cookie program.


This year I am your cookie manager. However, next year, you will need a parent volunteer from the troop to take over. (I'm happy to teach you everything I know.)

Your first order is due Feb 15th. Check out the cookie info page to learn more.

Meet Your Troop Management Team!

I'm happy to announce that the troop now officially has two leaders and a treasurer! Without their generous spirit the troop would not be able to continue. Let's give them a round of applause and please congratulate them, thank them, and support them whenever you can!

An investiture ceremony is held when one or more persons join Girl Scouting for the first time. The girl who is being invested will: (1) say the Girl Scout Promise and Law, (2) receive her Daisy Girl Scout membership pin, and (3) be welcomed into Girl Scouting.


The girls need to be in uniform. They will show off what they have learned so far and sing a song.


International Festival

Sunday, Feb 10th, 2-5pm

144 Ram Dr

Covington, GA

Save the date to attend the area-wide International Festival to celebrate Thinking Day!

Cost is $1 for 10 tickets (each activity costs 1 ticket)

*An International Festival is a Girl Scout tradition. It commemorates Thinking Day, the birth date of Lord and Lady Baden Powell, and our connection to Girl Guides all over the world. Usually, in an International Festival, a troop choose a country in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and hosts a station that shares things that they have learned about that country and Scouting there.


By attending, your scout will earn a World Thinking Day Patch!


My brownie troop will be presenting and representing the country of Haiti. Please come by and visit.
