McKinley Girl Scouts’ Next Meeting is Wednesday, March 1

The McKinley Girl Scout Troops (Daisy K-1st, Brownie 2nd-3rd, and Junior 4th- 5th) have gotten off to a great start! Our next meeting is Wednesday, March 1, 6:30pm-7:45pm in the McKinley School Library. March 1 is the last day to sign up your daughter for Girl Scouts this school year! 

For your daughter to be ready to participate, and if you have not yet done so, please do the following before March 1:

  • Register your daughter(s) by clicking on https://portal.gsofct.org/IMIS/GSWCM/Non_Member/NM_options.aspx. Click ‘create an account’ and fill in the information for your daughter. It will ask for email address and user name/password so remember to write these down. Registration fees are $30 ($15 for GS of CT and $15 for GS national).  These are paid at the end of registration on-line. This registration fee is annual (running on an academic year calendar).
  • In addition, we will be collecting Troop dues of $25 for the year.  These will be due to Jennifer Barahona (Treasurer) by March 1. We are still in the process of setting up the bank account so we will let you know once that is complete so you know how to address the check. The Troop dues will allow us to purchase meeting supplies, pins, patches, etc. If you need financial assistance with the Troop dues, please contact Jennifer at jennifer(dot)d(dot)barahona(at)gmail(dot)com. Jennifer will be the only one with access to this confidential information.
