New Girl Scout Troop for K-1st-graders.

Girls in Kindergarten and First Grade are invited to join a new Daisy Troop:

Hi, my name is Judi Dziwak, and I am the Troop Leader for the new Daisy Troop at Sayre Language Academy. Initially the troop was only for the 1st grade, but there has been some interest from parents with kindergarteners too. We are now welcoming kindergarteners into our troop, however we will need a parent to take over the Daisy Troop next year as the 1st graders become Brownies.

We are also inviting any 1st graders and kindergarteners in the area from schools other than Sayre. This is a great opportunity for girls to connect with other girls in the neighborhood in their same age bracket.

The first troop meeting will be at the West Belmont Library at 3104 N. Narragansett Ave. on Wednesday, October 2nd, from 3:30 – 5:00 pm. Meetings will then be held there the first and third Wednesday of each month going forward.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at or 773-386-0772.

Thank you,
Judi Dziwak
Daisy Troop Leader
