Now that most of our school districts have their school calendar set and families have selected how they will proceed with the school year (in-person, virtual or some sort of blended experience), it is time to work with your school and/or charter organization to nail down your Join Scout Night details.
JSN LOCATION & TIME
Ideally, holding a Join Scout Night at school is the best since the families are most familiar with this location. Rather than holding the signup in the cafeteria in the cafeteria or gym like you normally do, request to use the parking lot or playground area instead. Schools may be more likely to let you use the familiar location if you are outdoors and have more of an opportunity to spread out.
Also, schedule your signup to take place for an hour (ie. between 6:30-8:00 PM rather than at 7:00 PM). This naturally lends to people show up over the course of time rather than all showing up at the same time.
You Pack should expect to hear from your District Executive Staff in the next week or as they also begin coordinating recruitment opportunities available at the schools. You can also share your JSN Details at www.danbeard.org/jsn-info
We'll share suggestions on Virtual Signups in a future Join Scout Night Newsletter.
