Hispanic Heritage Month Spotlight: Girl Scouts at Oliver Partnership School

For Hispanic Heritage Month, we have been featuring Latina members of Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts. Our final story is about Girl Scouts at the Oliver Partnership School.

Girl Scouts at the Oliver Partnership School in Lawrence are having a great time learning new skills and making friends. These fourth and fifth graders enjoy selling cookies and spending time with their sister Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts has instilled in them the importance of giving back to their community, which they recently did by painting garden boxes to beautify the school.

These girls proudly celebrate their Hispanic heritage by reciting the Girl Scout Promise and Law in Spanish before the start of each meeting.

¡Bien hecho, chicas!


Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Here at Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts we are committed to supporting the activities that help to create bridges between cultures. We hope you enjoyed our Hispanic Heritage Month spotlights! Please continue to share your stories throughout the year by email us at getsocial@girlscoutsofeasternmass.org.
