Treasures for Teachers - March 2021

Spring cleaning time!!!  Join Troop 4312 in cleaning out your house and donating items to Treasures 4 Teachers! 

Our schools and teaching staff have worked hard over the past year to provide an education to our children despite all the chaos happening around us.  Teachers often pay out of their own pocket for supplies to finish outfitting their classrooms or to prepare for special projects.  Treasures 4 Teachers gathers new and slightly used supplies from across the valley to help teachers have the resources they need to excel.  Anyone who works closely with students can have access to a wide selection of materials, resources and training that will enhance and expand the learning process. T4T is a donation-based operation. 


T4T is looking for clean, safe and interesting donations that will support our local teachers and students while at the same time preserving our environment.  Please review the list below. 


Items can be dropped off at Diana’s house beginning March 1, 2021 through March 28, 2021.  Please place items in the bin labelled Treasures for Teachers with your Troop Number noted.  Be sure to complete the http://tinyurl.com/PimaServiceReport in order for your girls to receive their patch.

Adult Awards 2021

 


It's that time of year when we honor all of our fantastic volunteers and give special recognition to those that have gone over and beyond to give their girls a fantastic experience and to contribute to the neighborhood. We need your help to point out those volunteers that deserve this special recognition. 

Neighborhood Awards (due March 19th)

The Volunteer of Excellence Award is given to a volunteer within a service unit who has contributed outstanding service while directly partnering with girls in support of the Girl Scout Mission.  To nominate a volunteer, please follow this link. Previous recipients are not eligible. Please feel free to email Diana and ask her if your candidate has already received this award.


If you are interested in nominating someone for one of the following service unit awards, please email Diana.

The Outdoor Pathfinder Award recognizes volunteers who make outdoor experiences in Girl Scouts possible and provided creative, recreational, and educational outdoor opportunities for girls. Service can go beyond a troop experience to make the outdoor experience available to a wide number of girls. GSACPC will provide this pin at no expense to the Service Team.

The Innovator Award Recognizes a volunteer who brought the Girl Scout program to her/his service unit in the most creative or innovative way. 

The Rising Star Award is for an outstanding NEW troop leader  and recognizes a volunteer during their first three years, for service beyond the expectations for the position, or recognizes volunteers who have volunteered a minimum of 6 months to maximum of 36 months who have contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls in any pathway.

The Standing Ovation Award recognizes a product program volunteer (Fall or Cookie) who has gone above and beyond the expected product sales duties and given service of exceptional benefit which warrants recognition. 

The Sustained Service Award recognizes continued outstanding service for 3 years after receiving the Volunteer of Excellence Award. Contact Diana to find out if your nominee is eligible for this award.

The Go-Get-Her Award recognizes a volunteer who has put significant effort and creativity into finding and recruiting more girls into Girl Scouts.
