St. Stans Girl Scout Troop 2832 made of up students from Kindergarten through 7th grade have been making a difference around the school and in our communities as well as learning skills that will help in upcoming Cookie Sales!
The older Cadettes have been setting a wonderful example for the younger girls. They made a poster of Girl Scout founder Juliette Lowe and spoke to the Brownies and Daisies about the inspirational woman that she was. Afterwards the entire troop celebrated Lowe’s birthday together.
The Cadettes have also planted tulips and purple allium in front of the school making the entrance to St. Stans even more welcoming. We can’t wait to see the results in the spring! The Cadettes are now collecting gently used fall and summer clothing and sundry toiletries for missions to the Phillipines. They will be collecting from each classroom on November 19th!
Meanwhile the Daisies and Brownies attended Cookie University at Mercy College. The learned all about how to market and sell Cookies, as well as about the new program where they will be able to sell Cookies on line. Get ready for Girl Scout cookie season!
