Kindergarten and First Grade Girl Scout Sign-ups (“Daisies”)
We are starting Roland Park’s Girl Scout troop for Kindergarten girls (called “Daisies” for grades K-1, while “Brownies” are for 2nd grade and up). This is a fun opportunity for your daughter to meet other girls, learn about leadership, the environment, community service, and taking ACTION in the world around them. The Kindergarten troop will be meeting every other Friday after school from 2:30 – 3:45, starting in Mid-September. The First Grade troop will be meeting On Monday. We will hold a parent information meeting in early September to explain more about the program and the kindergarten troop leaders (Jennie Sober and Eileen Canady) and First Grade troop leader (Claudia Frigeri) will be communicating with you via email next week. Parents do not need to attend the meetings, but will be asked to help out regularly with snacks, meeting supplies, and planning occasional meetings, as well as field trips.

All Dues will be paid directly with your leaders once the meetings begin.
