During the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop money management skills with setting goals, taking cookie orders and handling customers’ money. For Troop 1252, the learning didn't stop when cookie season ended.
The girls of Troop 1252 wanted to show appreciation to Oasis Elementary School for providing them with classroom space for weekly troop meetings for the past five years. The girls decided to use a portion of their cookie earnings to purchase brand new flags for the school.
During a ceremony, the troop retired the school’s old flags and presented the new flags to their principal, Mrs. Gail Miller and vice principal, Mr. Stephen Balliet. Both principals were in complete shock!
Troop 1252 walked away understanding the true significance of giving back to the community. Fabulous job, girls!
