Dear Girl Scout Family,
Supporting financial literacy growth.
We're one week into the Fall Product Sale
. Early indicators for magazines indicate the girl's sales are about 20% ahead of last year. Very EXCITING!
The Fall Product Sale, together with the Girl Scout Cookie Sale, offer great hands-on learning experiences for your Girl Scout. Working together with her troop, a girl learns 5 skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. She learns to earn money to pay for her activities, including educational programs and service activities.
We encourage you to support your girl's learning by...
- Asking her questions.
- Never doing things for her she can do
- Talking to her about what she learned
- Having fun with her!
Please extend my hearty congratulations to YOUR girl as she embarks on hands-on learning through Girl Scouts!
NOTE: All Girl Scout offices will be closed November 8-9 for an all staff meeting.
