Due to conflicting time schedules and parent suggestions I am recreating the calendar for girl scouts the rest of the year. With Cheerleading, Science, Tutoring, homework etc. all being directly after school I need to change the meeting times. I feel this will work well for the girls to be able to get activities, homework and dinner in before the fun activities we have in the evening! Per suggestions the best time would be to keep the meetings on Tuesdays and have them from 5:30 to 6:30pm or 6 to 7pm. We currently lose nearly 30 minutes every meeting waiting on kids to arrive from school at 3:30, so we are not loosing actual meeting time setting it for 1 hour long. I will wait for all feedback before creating the new calendar. This will also cut out snack time as well seeing as the kids will not have the after school munchies. Please let me know if this will work for you!! Thank you!
As for next week just a slight change in plans. The Halloween Party will be Tuesday October 19th as planned but from 5-7pm. I hope this gives some time for homework and costume dress up. We will have a light dinner, cupcake walk, Halloween games, and so much more! A donation to the girl scout fund would be greatly appreciated to cover the fun events, food, and prizes for the upcoming holiday season. It is not required! We will be having a Thanksgiving party and Christmas party for the girls as well this year. They will be receiving new badges as they celebrate the wonderful holidays this season. I have so many fun things planned during the wonderful holiday events for the girls!

We will keep the Camp out separate and at the same time and place Friday, October 22nd from 6:30-8:30pm! I feel we need to keep the events separate..when I began to consider combining the events, there is just no way to have it all in one night. It is a special treat to have the camp out, tents, astronomy lesson, telescope, story time, etc. I look forward to the fun evening with the girls! Remember to where casual clothing in layers and bring a sleeping bag or blanket for the evening outside.


I look forward to January when our cookie sales start. The girls will attend a cookie carnival for pre-sales information on the cookies in January. All the cookie sale proceeds will benefit our troop and be directly used for all their fun events! I apologize I may be asking for more parent help during this holiday season due to no funding in our girl scout troop fund yet. Thanks for All your Support!

Any thoughts on any matters listed are greatly appreciated!! Smiles, Joani
