The school year may be over, but the Girl Scout experience is still going strong. After a successful cookie sale, Sudbury Troop 77130 decided to spread the joy to a soldier from their hometown currently serving in Kosovo. Other Girl Scout troops from Sudbury pooled their Cookies for a Cause, collecting more than 150 boxes for the military. Read the Sudbury Town Crier article to learn about the girls’ community spirit.
Congrats to Emma Powers of Norfolk Girl Scout Troop 73600 on earning her Silver Award,
the highest award a Cadette Girl Scout can earn! Emma’s project helps elementary school students improve their reading skills. Working with the Norfolk Public Library and a Special Education teacher, she learned different methods for teaching young children. She then developed and taught her own multiple-day reading program at the public library. By using art, she taught the children how to visualize the words they were reading which helped to bring the stories to life!
