I mentioned earlier that my troop was Brownies. However, come this fall I will be leadering the incoming Daisy troop (1st graders). I ouwld know about penpaling until after we get the girls settled.

I want to get to a healthy weight and stay there forever. I don't have to make huge changes all at once, just small ones consistently.

5 girls is ridiculous especially as they get older and more drop out.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

And in our council, you have to have 5 girls to have a troop.

One day at a time . . .

I emailed a troop that will be first grade Daisys to see if they wanted a pen pal troop. I'll let you know. If you already have one let me know.

You'll have some additional program materials for every level coming out over the summer. They will be "Journeys" that girls can complete over time. I'll know more when I come back from the spring conference next week. GSUSA is releasing one journey this year (specific for each level) but I think the hope is to offer more than one per year after that.

It will be nice when they all get their ducks in a row and have policies in place. They are changing stuff on us too and we have no idea. We only have two girls coming back and are now told we have to have 3 girls to be a troop. So then what, tell the girls they can't be a troop? That seems silly. Two 7th graders that are willing to continue and they can't be a troop.

I was told at the training that we had the choice of bridging our girls or keeping them as Daisy's for another year since we came in during the transition year. We talked with our girls and decided that we would bridge over. A month ago, after working our tails off to get almost all of our petals, we were told, in a very nasty manner i might add, that we were NOT to bridge the girls...it didn't matter what we were talk previously. I had to break it to our girls that we would be Daisy's for another year. Needless to say there were a few tears shed, but as I told the parents...look at it this way...you don't have to buy another uniform for another year. lol

We are going to make the best of it and go back over the petals again. Now I just need to find new ways to reinforce the meanings to the girls.

Oops, I'm always wanting to put those 6th graders in the wrong place!

A key to leadership development will be new GRADE LEVELS (no longer age levels) for girls. And Girl Scout is now the first name of the levels!

New Girl Scout Grade Levels
Girl Scout Daisy K and 1st Grade
Girl Scout Brownie 2nd and 3rd Grade
Girl Scout Junior 4th and 5th Grade
Girl Scout Cadette 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade
Girl Scout Senior 9th and 10th Grade
Girl Scout Ambassador 11th and 12th Grade

It's probably not your SU not letting you bridge. The age levels will ALL be changed as of this coming fall. K/1 Daisy, 2/3 Brownie, 4/5/6 Junior, 7/8 Cadette, 9/10 Senior and 11/12 GS Ambassador. All girls who are in Kindergarden this year as Daisies will be Daisies for another year. Look for additional program materials to start coming out over the summer.

OK, if you don't find someone let me know. I'm in two different service units and I'm sure I can find you one.

No They will be Daisy's again next year. Our SU isn't letting us bridge them, even though we were told earlier in the year that we could if we wanted to. Go figure...new rules....change every day.

Were moving into Cadets, but it does sound like a fun idea.

I've got older girls. Let me know if you don't get anyone from here and I can check around. Daisy's this year and they will be Brownies next year?

I was wondering if there would be a Daisy Troop out there that would like to be Pen Pals with my Troop of 10 girls from Ohio.
