Scouting Achievement at NSM

Girl Scout Troop 62386 (the 5th grade troop) has three girls presenting their Bronze Award Project on Friday May 26th during Friday Morning Gathering.  The project is about anti-bullying or words that hurt and how to build a community.
Madeleine Senasac, Hailey LaMonte, and Pavitra Shankar can all tell you more about their project if you see them around school!  Or just give them a big Congratulations on their achievement!
The Girl Scout Bronze Award is a big deal—in fact, this award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. When Girl Scouts go for the Bronze, they’re showing incredible teamwork, solving problems, and representing what Girl Scouts can achieve in their communities.
