Updated public health order affects troop gatherings

On Oct. 23, Gov. Polis and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) amended its Safer at Home public health order to limit personal gatherings in all counties at all Safer at Home levels. The revised order reduces the size of personal gatherings to no more than 10 people from no more than two separate households. Girl Scout troop meetings are considered “personal gatherings” and are affected by this public health order. You can find your county’s level here. At this time, the public health order affects all but four Colorado counties.

Girl Scouts of Colorado reached out to officials with CDPHE to determine how the amended order affects troop activities. These are the answers they provided.

Larger Girl Scout events, such as a service unit event, only qualify as “outdoor or indoor events” if they are intended for and open to the community.

Girl Scout troops can attend events or activities at a business in accordance with the rules and regulations for the business. Businesses are under separate regulations and can also set their own rules and regulations that are stricter than the state or county. We recommend if you are hosting activities or events at a business, you should contact the business to confirm their rules and share their plan to ensure the business is fine with the group size, mask requirements, etc. For instance a business may decide that a group gathering is a personal gathering and apply those rules of no more than 10 people from no more than two separate households in a party.

We know it’s disappointing not to be able to meet in-person, but it’s also important to follow the public health order and each of us must to do our part to curb the spread of COVID-19.  There is a wide variety of online programming available and tips to help your troop stay connected even when we cannot gather in person. Please reach out to your VSS if you need help setting up virtual programming for your troop.

Please see the COVID page on our website and the COVID FAQs for the most up-to-date information.

Wrapping Up the 2020 Fall Product Program

 

The Fall Product Program is coming to a close on Monday, October 26. Our Girl Scouts, their families, and volunteers have ROCKED the 2020 season!

Review the tips and reminders below to help support a successful close-out.

VOLUNTEER TIPS FOR SUPPORT AND CLOSE-OUT

GIRL REWARDS:  Girls and caregivers or TFPMs can select girl reward options in M2OS. Parents/caregivers of Girl Scouts should makes reward selections and check their shipping address is correct for the personalized patch by October 26 at 8 p.m. Troop fall product managers can adjust or make reward selections for girls in their troop by October 28 at 8 p.m.

If girls/caregivers have not selected between an item or Cookie Credits, TFPMs should choose the item. GSCO can always change it to Cookie Credits if the girl prefers. Reward orders are placed based on number of items selected; it’s usually not possible to provide an item if it was not selected.

Service unit fall product managers cannot select or edit girl rewards in M2OS, but you can send out a reminder email to TFPMs to check girl rewards before the deadline.

Be sure to pull reports, download, and/or print and save! You want to be able to refer to reports after the program close-out.

The troop and service unit M2OS guides include steps for pulling different reports:

TFPM’s

  • Make sure all girls have an address in for their Avatar patch if they earned it.
  • Download and/or print delivery tickets so you are ready when it’s time to pick up product from the SUFPM. You will find the delivery tickets report on your dashboard under “Product Management” – after GSCO places girl reward order.
  • On your dashboard under “Financials and Reporting,” you’ll find the “Banking and Payments” report, which breaks down all sales and payments received. The “Troop Summary” report will show all sales, money owed for product and troop proceeds.

SUFPM’s

  • Check the records of all troops in your service unit and send out an email blast with reminders to troops and offer your support.
  • Don’t forget to create your own Avatar patch, you’ve earned it!
  • Go to “Financials and Reporting” on your dashboard. Under the “Special Reports” tab is where you will find your troop information for products and girl rewards.
  • Download and/or print delivery tickets so you are ready to distribute sorted products when it’s time for troops to pick-up items for girl delivery. You will find delivery tickets will post on dashboards under “Product Management” – after GSCO places the girl reward order.

Need assistance with the M2 system? Contact M2’s Customer Care team at 1-800-372- 8520 or email them at question@gsnutsandmags.com.

2021 Cookie Program Update

 

We want to reassure you the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program is happening! We’ve got this! We are Girl Scouts. When presented with a challenge, we rise to the occasion and we – girls, families, volunteers, and GSCO staff – are doing that right now.

GSCO is working with Little Brownie Bakers, GSUSA, and our key volunteers, as we consider girl and adult safety and the uncertainties before us. Know that for the 2021 cookie season, the core aspects of the Girl Scout Cookie Program will be the same, but how some things are done will be a bit different.

eBudde will open in early November to approved service unit cookie managers and troop cookie managers (SUCMs and TCMs). Complete a TCM agreement and make sure your troop has submitted a 2020-2021 ACH form.

Service unit training will start mid-November. TCM training will begin in December. More detailed “just-in-time” training and information will be shared leading up to the start of the program in January and continue through February and March.

Look for more updates soon on the GSCO blog, website, and Facebook page.

Activity Approval Form

At the beginning of each Girl Scouting year, Girl Scouts of Colorado and Girl Scouts of the USA review our volunteer/program policies, Volunteer Essentials, and our safety policies, Safety Activity Checkpoints. These resources are here to not only communicate our policies, but to ensure every adult member and girl are prepared and safe. It is the expectation of every volunteer to review these resources every year. The 2020 version of Safety Activity Checkpoints includes a new section on key components of an Emergency Action Plan, clarification of which activities require approval by GSCO and updated guidelines on general Girl Scout program safety.

In the same light of ensuring girl safety, we have a new process at Girl Scouts of Colorado for council approval for activities, events, and trips held by troops and service units. The Activity and Event Approval Form must be completed at least 30 days prior to your event, activity or trip. Activities that require prior approval include any:

  • Troop or service unit hosting a money earning event or activity.
  • Troop or group overnight or travel experience.
  • High-risk activity that requires approval per the Safety Activity Checkpoints.

This new process for Activity and Event Approval goes into effect for any activities taking place after December 15, 2020.

What are Safety Activity Checkpoints?

Safety Activity Checkpoints (SAC) is a resource that provides safety standards and guidelines for general Girl Scout programs and specific activity areas. SAC includes information on required volunteer certification, adult volunteer to girl participant ratios, emergency plan templates and guidelines for specific activities. SAC includes activity chapters on everything from bicycling to camping to horseback riding to rock climbing! Each activity chapter includes a resources to help troops plan the activity and specific safety guidelines around equipment, instructor experience/training, limited to Girl Scout program levels that can participate and if approval from GSCO is required before your troop or Girl Scout group can do the activity. You can review the 2020 version of Safety Activity Checkpoints here!

Why do some activities require approval by GCSO?

In Girl Scouts we want to ensure that girls are participating in activities that are developmentally appropriate, progressive, and of course safe. By requiring the approval of some of the more “high-risk” activities girls can participate in, Girl Scouts of Colorado can make sure the group has the proper insurance, have taken the necessary leader training, is taking the necessary safety precautions, and is properly prepared for the activity. It is in no way meant to limit a girls experience, rather our goal is the increase the amount of fun, safe experiences girls can participate in.

What is the activity and event approval form? How do I know if my activity needs approval?

This is a form that troops, Service Units and other Girl Scout groups in Girl Scouts of Colorado will need to complete 30 days prior to any activity that needs approval. Activities that require approval are:

  • Any troop or service unit hosting a money earning event or activity.
  • Any overnight or travel experience.
  • Any high-risk activity that requires approval per the Safety Activity Checkpoints. You can determine if your activity needs approval by reading the activity specific chapter, or by looking at the “Activities at a Glance” chart on p. 21 of Safety Activity Checkpoints

What is the timeline for activity approval and how will I know I am approved?

Please complete the form 30 days prior to your activity. Depending on the type of activity you are planning, you may not need to wait for additional GSCO approval after your submission. Upon completion of the form you will receive an email indicating if additional staff approval will be required for your activity. If additional approval is required, you will be connected via email from a GSCO staff notifying you of your approval within 10 business days of your submission.

Still have questions? Reach out to us at inquiry@gscolorado.org.

COVID-19 Update: October 2020

Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) has updated its guidance for in-person gatherings and now requires a health screening questionnaire to be filled out and signed by the caregiver on the day of an in-person meeting or activity. If a participant answers “yes” to any of the questions, they should not attend the in-person activity. Before attending an in-person meeting or activity, each participant should submit a COVID-19 pre-screen questions (pdf) or COVID-19 pre-screen form (online version – automatically emailed directly to the troop leader’s email address input on the form). Troop volunteers can collect the information and signatures at the event or send to caregivers ahead of the event/meeting on the same day.  The forms do not need to be collected by GSCO, however troop volunteers should save paper or electronic files for one year.

There are also updates to face covering and carpooling sections of the COVID Guidance for Volunteers. Be sure to check the COVID page on the website for the most recent information. (You can also get there by clicking the pink banner on the home page.)

Volunteer View: October 2020

Help Spread the Word about Girl Scouts

The No. 1 reason girls join Girl Scouts is because a friend invited them. Can you help spread the word? The GSCO blog has simple ways (like posting on your local Facebook groups or hosting a Zoom Robot-Building party for the kindergartners in your neighborhood) you can help new girls get connected to Girl Scouts.

Girls can also earn points toward a sloth Make New Friends patch (it fits together with the renewal patch!) by participating in fun and simple challenges that help get the word out and encourage other girls to join Girl Scouts. Check the blog for details!

Girls can also invite friends to join Girl Scouts and participate in one of our awesome virtual programs. Our clubs are a great way to participate in activities together and then meet separately, either in-person or virtually, to celebrate what you learned.

Happy Girl Scout New Year!

All girls renewed for the 2021 Membership Year before October 1, can request a free Renewed Girl Scout patch. Troop leaders may request patches for all renewed members of your troop. Deadline to request patch is November 2.

Want to make sure you have a fun and engaging year? Have your girls use our new year planners to choose what activities they want to do this year.
Leaders- want to see what is coming for 2020-2021? Check out the Program and Training Guide on the GSCO Blog.  (Pro Tip: Subscribe to get a weekly summary of blog posts).

Highest Awards

Girl Scouts of Colorado is so proud to announce Julia Trujillo of Arvada is a 2020 National Gold Award Girl Scout! Every year GSUSA chooses 10 girls nationally through an extensive selection process to earn a $20,000 scholarship to the college of their choice and the distinct honor of being a National Gold Award Girl Scout. We have many ways to celebrate Julia and allow girls to connect directly with her. Check out our blog for more information!

As a reminder, GSUSA has given all troops a three-month extension to complete the Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards in 2020. Troops and girls now have until December 31 to complete their projects and submit the Bronze and Silver Notification form.

Have girls who are working on their Gold Award projects? Remember to have them email Highest Awards Manager, Kaitie LoDolce, when they submit their initial proposals through Go Gold. Girls and troop leaders are encouraged to reach out to Kaitie LoDolce at any stage of their projects for help at highestawards@gscolorado.org.

Upcoming Events

Juliette Gordon Low’s Birthday Celebration

October 31 –12 p.m.

We will play some party games, learn about Juliette, giggle with fellow Girl Scout sisters, and participate in a rededication ceremony.

Girl Scout Juniors are invited to Girl Scout Engineering Day with CO School of Mines

Saturday, November 14 — 9 – 11 a.m.

Hybrid Take Home/Virtual

The Society of Women Engineers at Colorado School of Mines is thrilled to invite Girl Scout Juniors to participate in their annual Girl Scout Engineering Day on Saturday, November 14! This year, the program is virtual, and girls have the option to order a supply kit in advance or gather their own supplies. This virtual exploration of science and engineering will consist of a variety of STEM activities and a short panel discussion.

NEW GSUSA National Service Project – Promote the Vote

Since Girl Scouts’ founding in 1912, our members have created lasting, positive change through advocacy and civic action. And though some girls may be too young to cast a ballot, they can still mobilize their communities to take action like a Girl Scout.

As we mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which removed the gender restriction to voting, Girl Scouts is launching a national “Promote the Vote” initiative to engage Girl Scout troops in the democratic process.

Voting is arguably our most important civic duty—but barriers still exist. In many parts of the country, voting laws and protocols make it difficult for many people, especially people of color, to cast their votes in local and federal elections. In other words, there’s work to be done—and girls can play a part!

GSUSA Virtual Calendar

Check out awesome virtual experiences for Girl Scouts of all ages from Girl Scouts of the USA. You can also access past recordings through this calendar.

Important Fall Product Program Deadlines, Tips, and Reminders

Girl Scouts and troops have done an AMAZING job so far putting their business skills to work and showing their Girl Scout spirit during the 2020 Fall Product Program!

Upcoming Deadlines

  • Customers can order nut and candy items through the order card for girl delivery up until October 11 at 8 p.m.
  • October 11 at 8 p.m. is also the deadline for order card/Nut Promise orders to be entered by families or troop fall product managers. Families should submit payment for orders to troop fall product managers as well.

  • Customers can purchase nut and candy items for girl delivery through online storefronts only until October 14 at 8 p.m.

Tips for Girls and Troops

After online and in-person orders with girl delivery have ended, there are still options available for additional orders to help Girl Scouts and troops to reach their goals!

  • Magazine Store – Magazines have no shipping cost and make great holiday gifts for friends and family. There are hundreds of diverse options at reasonable prices. The troop earns 13% of magazine subscriptions!
  • Care-to-Share  has no shipping cost and goes directly to the military to show our appreciation. Troops earn $1 back in proceeds for every Care-to-Share donation.
  • Nuts and Candy – Direct Ship – Sweet and savory treats make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, friends, and family. Troops earn $1 in proceeds for every item sold.

Troops can discuss and decide how to use troop proceeds. Some options include purchasing Girl Scout uniforms, badges and Journey books, troop supplies, and other items through the GSCO Shop. Proceeds can also be used to pay for GSCO events with a per girl fee.

Cookie Credits can be applied towards paying for a GSCO camp, troop field trips or outing, and for individual girl purchases at the GSCO Shop. New this year – Girls can use their Cookie Credits to be reimbursed for the cost of their Girl Scout membership!

Reminders:

Girls earn the personalized avatar patch by sending 15 or more emails to customers through their M2 storefront and selling 15 or more items during the Fall Product Program.

  • Make sure all girls have a current address in the M2 operating system (M2OS). Their personalized avatar patch will ship directly to them as soon as they earn it!
  • Contests – check-in with girls and make sure that they have completed the Giant Sloth and Magazine contest forms. Criteria for the contests and links to the forms are on the Fall Product Program page of our website.
  • Check that girls have made reward selections before the October 28 at 8 p.m. Contact parents/caregivers and ask them to make reward selections. If you need to make reward selections for girls in your troop, always select the item instead of Cookie Credits.
  • Look for just-in-time videos – how to make reward selections and how to filter and pull reports – to post to the GSCO Facebook page and YouTube channel near the Fall Product Program close-out deadline.

Need assistance with the M2OS platform? Contact M2 customer service at question@gsnutsandmags.com or call 1-800-372-8520.
