We need school glue for STEM!

Troop 2776 needs school glue (Elmer’s preferred) for the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta STEM expo on October 29th.  Our troop will be showing girls how to create a fun polymer (homemade silly putty) by experimenting with chemical properties.

We were told originally we would need enough for 500, now registrations are at approximately 1000 people!  Help!  Contact Leader Lee (troop2776 at gmail dot com) if you can help us out by donating your not so old glue, or if you spot a good sale.

Troop Planning – What will we do?

During our first meeting, the girls brainstormed different things they would like to do this year – trips, activities, service projects, events – and we had a good list to jumpstart planning for the year.  At our next troop meeting we will induct our executive board (see our troop government page) and assign girls to research activities and interests for the year.

Girls and parents or family members can register online this year at http://www.gsgatl.org.  We urge all parents to consider registering as volunteers to help mentor activities and support our troop.  They can also be back-up first aiders.  We are also looking for a parent to register as “cookie mentor” this year, as the girls will be handling most of the fund-raising themselves with guidance.

It’s Girl Scout time!

The summer is over, school is back in session and Girl Scout troop meetings are starting up again soon!
