About Girl Scouts
The mission: "To build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place."
Girl Scouts is the world's preeminent organization dedicated soley to girls - all girls - where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives.
At Our Lady of the Lake School we have a growing and vibrant Girl Scout Community. We currently have a third grade Brownie troop and a fifth grade Junior troop. Our girl scouts participate in a variety of activities including field trips, community service projects, and arts and crafts. Older girl scouts also are involved in mentoring younger scouts.
This year Our Lady of the Lake School hosted World Thinking Day for the Verona and Cedar Grove Girl Scouts. World Thinking Day is a Girl Scout tradition dating back to 1926. During the event troops host a table in which they display facts, information, food, crafts, and Girl Scout activities from other countries. It is a way for us to honor Girl Scouting all across the globe.
- Girl Scouts receive their very own passports as they enter World Thinking Day.
