We pledged created an account and have been in contact with the principle. What happens Next?
Cub Scout Pack 197 sponsored by Oakcrest Elementary School, Ocala, FL, conducted our annual service project for our sponsor by cleaning the school grounds the morning after their Spring Fling festival. This is another chance for the boys and their families to thank Oakcrest for their sponsorship and for providing us with a place to meet.
Scouts from Pack 194 properly retire tattered flags from Oak Grove School.
Last night, at V. Palmer Elementary, Pack 585 Completed a request of Presenting the flags for opening ceremonies. Prior to the partcipants starting the talent show, the scouts as a group stated the law of the pack in front of the group. After getting over the initial stage freight, they pulled through. So proud of all the boys.
Scouts wore their uniforms to school and helped participate in the kindness fair. Their theme was “it’s knot too hard to be kind” and boys taught classmates how to tie various knots, talked about what Cub Scouts means to them and explained how a scout is kind! The boys showed great leadership skills and the school seemed very happy with their booth. This is our fourth project for the Adopt a school program this year and it was a lot of fun!
Pack 23 did a full spring cleaning of their elementary school grounds at Rose L. MacDonald school a couple months ago. The boys filled several bags of trash and disposed of it. People who saw the scouts cleaning their schoolyard came up to thank them and the boys felt very good about what they were doing!
We at Pack 159 lost one of our brightest smiles in January. To honor the life of an amazing young Scout, a reading bench was built by a very talented Scout parent and painted by the pack. At our May pack meeting, a Spirit of The Eagle ceremony was held and the reading bench was presented to the parents of Edmond Bock IV and the principal of Atco Elementary, Wanda Pichardo. It was an emotional event, lead by the Eagle Scouts of Troop 159. The bench will be placed in the library of Atco Elementary.
Pack 4028 out of Oak Park, IL completed our second Adopt-A-School service project this past Friday night!
Lincoln Elementary School held their first movie night in the school’s park. We were asked to help clean-up after the movie ended and parents and students cleared the field. It was a late night, thankfully the parents and students didn’t leave a big mess.
Next up we are tackling clean-up of the school’s court yard and pond area!
Pack 362 will help pop some corn, supervise a bouncy house and cleanup the school after this year’s Ice Cream Social at Highmeadow on 5/30/14.
On May 5, 2014 Cub Scout Pack 150 helped with volunteer hours for The Race of the Rams at W. Edward Balmer school. Working water stations, helping with crowd control and just have some fun in the sun. This marks the 4th activity for the school year we have completed. Look forward to hopefully continuing our relationship with the schools.
