Girls Scouts Meeting: Tuesday, May 17th @ 2pm

1The Girls Scouts will be hosting an informational meeting for parents interested in becoming troop leaders and forming new troops in our community. Currently, we have a grade 3 troop which will be moving up to grade 4 next school year, but we have many girls in all other grades who want to take advantage of this leadership opportunity.

Please join us Tuesday, May 17th @ 2:00 in the conference room for information from our current troop leaders.

Consider joining with another parent or stepping forward yourself to sponsor a troop for next school year. Guidance will be provided and the girls at UAS will benefit from being involved
