5th Grade Webelos Scouts in Action
Fifth Grade Webelos Cub Scouts are alive and growing! We meet monthly in the School Hall to have fun with our friends and to work on the Cub Scout Adventures on our way to crossing over to join Boy Scouts in March. This is part of a journey, which for some of us will lead to earning the highest rank in Boy Scouts, Eagle Scout. Among other things, we’re learning about the United States flag, how to handle ourselves in the outdoors, how to give glory to God, take care of nature, and serve the community. We are also learning how to tie knots and use a knife safely.
Last year, we toured the Butler Fire Station as part of our First Responder requirement. The Dall family, parishioners and alumni of St. Joes, was kind enough to give their expertise as volunteers for the Butler Fire Department. Scouts enjoyed live demonstrations of how to treat various emergencies.
On Monday, December 19th, we hosted Wauwatosa Police Chief and parishioner, Mr. Jim MacGillis. We asked Chief MacGillis questions about his job as a community leader. Chief MacGillis’s son, Max, followed the Scouting path here at St. Joes all the way to Eagle Scout so the Scouting program is close to the Chief’s heart, just like it is close to ours. Fifth graders, we’d love to have you join us! Come along for lots of fun and learning of life-long skills! Your presence will make a difference!
