Leader Tips: December 2008 Archives

Did you know there is a Girl Scout Research Institute?  They are seriously interested in the lives of our girls.  In fact, the GSRI is conducting a national survey on girls, ethics, and leadership. This study will provide important information and make a unique contribution to knowledge about children's perceptions and choices in life. 

GSUSA has commissioned The Harris Poll to survey youth in grades 3 through 12 in randomly chosen school districts around the country to learn more about their understanding of ethics. One of our local school districts may be asked to participate!

If you have any questions, you may contact Kimberlee Salmond, Senior Researcher, Girl Scout Research Institute at (212) 852-8180 or ksalmond@girlscouts.org. Thank you!

Dear Girl Scouting friends:

Our brownie troop here in Mineola, Texas is embarking on an ambitious, year-long project and we need your help to prove friendship knows no boundries! We would like to exchange two (2), 12.5" muslin blocks with your group. The squares will become part of a banner we will use in parades, meetings, etc. On your block please put your troop number and location in the center with your girls signatures (first names only please!) surrounding it. Be sure to leave an empty 1/4 inch area around the edge for sewing seams together. Any embellishments your group would like to add would be great.

In return, we will send you two (2) similar blocks from our group along with little notes from our girls about what they enjoy doing here in Texas. If your girls would like to include similar notes it would be great fun and a wonderful learning experience for all our girls and a special memento for them to keep. If your group would like to participate or have any questions, please e-mail me at hotrodgrannie@gmail.com. Please put "girl scout quilt" in the subject line so I can quickly pick your message out. We look forward to hearing from you.

Not sure what to give your daughter this holiday season? Give her the gift of camp! Send in your $50 deposit by December 19 and receive 10% off your daughter's Girl Scout summer resident camp session.

While it may be cold outside now, warm her heart with anticipation (and memories) of campfires, swimming and friends! 

Here's the form -- you can fill it out online (or not) and print it out to send in.  Happy Holidays!
