The Early Bird season has started so don't forget to re-register your troop for the 2015 Girl Scout year. The Early Bird registration deadline is 11:59pm, June 30.


We have a few incentives for you this year. For every troop who re-registers at least 50% of their troop (a minimum of 5 girls) you will receive a $20 coupon to any of the Girl Scout shops. Every troop will also receive a $10 coupon for a digital photo album. And, every girl will receive an Early Bird patch.


Additional incentives are for the Service Units. The top Service Unit with the greatest girl increase over last year's Early Bird figure and the top Service Unit with the greatest percentage increase over last year's Early Bird figure will each receive a coupon for priority selection of Service Unit encampment dates for either Spring 2015 or  Fall 2015.


The Second place Service Unit with the greatest girl increase over last year's Early Bird figure and the second place Service Unit with the greatest percentage increase over last year's Early Bird figure will have a choice of selecting either a Service Unit pizza party or a Service Unit Girl Scout parade banner.

Step 1: If you wake up and it is rainy outside, what do you need to wear?
...if it is sunny and hot?
...if it is cold?
...if it is going to be slightly cold but not rainy? e.g.: Fall weather

What happens if you are caught in the rain without a raincoat or umbrella? the cold without a jacket?
...the sun without sunglasses or a hat?

Before you leave the house in the morning make sure you dress appropriately for the weather. Ask an adult to read you the forecast, which means prediction of the weather, for that day so that you are prepared.
