Our troop had a special treat. We had some volunteers including some moms who dressed up as courageous and strong women from history, including an active Marine mom come talk to our Daisy Girl Scouts about being courageous and strong and how these Daisy’s can grow up to also be courageous and strong too.
Our visitors were Temple Grandin, Rosie the Riviter, Jane Goodall, Emiline Pankhurst, Ruth Bater Ginsberg, Ruby Bridges and Major Ross from the Marine Corps.
My kindergarten granddaughter has been in my Daisy troop for the past year. She had a school assignment to say what they want to be when they grow up. Most kids said doctor or police. This is what my granddaughter wrote. I guess I am doing something right.
At Highline Academy S.E., Daisy Troop 65709 has taken on some of the responsibility of displaying the flag. The Daisies have learned the proper ways to raise/lower flags, secure the rope, as well as fold the American and Colorado flag in their unique ways. It’s a great way to commence our meetings with taking down the flag.
Junior Troop 1001 and Daisy Troop 5685 contributed their own money from home by doing chores or good deeds and met at Stapleton’s Target to buy gifts for two families in need. We sponsored two families in our school and shopped for them with their holiday wish list. Girls paired up into two or three and had an item to find to help make two families’ holiday a little brighter. It was such a joy to see the girls shopping for someone else with their own hard earned money. Very proud of them!
