Daisy Troop 2220

Next Meeting is Friday, November 13, 2015

October Meeting Update

We are off to a great start! We had a really fun time this past Friday and we hope the girls did as well. We are lucky to have such a great group. We missed Cameron and hope to see her at the next meeting.

  • After Harper lead us over to Horizon Bay, the meeting began with the girls coloring in their daisy name necklaces as they enjoyed a snack that was passed out by Skyler, our snack helper. The necklaces serve two purposes: 1) so we can learn everyone's name and 2) on the back is the girl scout promise that they can practice.

  • Each girl had the chance to "share out" and introduce themselves to the group -- name and something they like to do. As it turns out we have a lot of budding artists!

  • We then introduced the job chart and how the meetings will run. Each meeting half of the girls will have a job (line leader, snack helper, leader of the girl scout promise, activity helper, leader of the friendship circle and clean up). We quickly learned these jobs are keenly sought after.

  • Next up was the Girl Scout Promise. We discussed what it means to make a promise. Then Alexa and Mrs. Jeckel lead everyone in reciting the Girl Scout Promise for the first time.

  • Then on to the activity where the girls had some creative time to decorate three pumpkins that we left for the Fall Festival. Mrs. Norton brought some cool decorations to work with and our activity helper Ella Baker passed out the goodies.

  • To close out the meeting, Averie lead the group in our first Friendship Circle. Getting the hands just right is tough, but we were successful.

  • Once Kinsley finished the clean up we headed down to see all of you!

Please Iron On: Blue Daisy Center

By trying to learn the Girl Scout Promise today, they earned the blue promise center. You may want to lay out some of the petals to make sure they fit with the other patches already on the tunic.

ALSO - they received a Barbie fun patch with a workbook that can be ironed on to the back of the tunic.

Next Meeting: Friday, November 13

Volunteer: Erin Markiewicz

Petal: Honest & Fair (and Investiture Ceremony)

Please ask your daughter if there is anything they'd like to do during our meeting. We are open to ideas and want our meeting to be as child-led as possible. If she has an idea for an activity for Honest & Fair, feel free to send an email.

Investiture Ceremony - Practice at home will help

During our November meeting we will squeeze in the Investiture Ceremony where the girls will receive their Daisy Girl Scout Pin.

Please help your daughter practice the Girl Scout Promise, Law and Sign (right hand - three middle fingers). We will recite these at the upcoming Investiture Ceremony (with our assistance as needed, of course).

The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
