(0 A Aug 2018) DahliaGiant.jpgIs your child learning History in the context of the times, ie the science, mores, art, technology, music, prevailing medical practices, etc? Since you last took a history class, have you sometimes wondered if you were exposed to the real facts? A little historical sleuthing could be enlightening.

Suki's popular class, Online goal Setting for Teens, filled up, but we are keeping the ad in the newsletter to inspire you to think ahead for the Spring Class.

Enjoy the weekend with the family! Parmalee

  Simply the Best Reading List!

Anne of Green Gables
Island of the Blue Dolphins
My Side of the Mountain
The Phantom Tollbooth
The Wind in the Willows

Seriously,if you want help with developing character, reading quality literature with your children is an enjoyable way of instilling values which will serve your children well. Better yet: 1) get their entire list;  2) share it with your school; and 3) if you can afford it, donate a LitWits kit to your child's teacher, with her input of course!

  All Girls Cub Scout Pack

(0 A Aug 2018) AllGirlsCubScouts.jpgPack 673 is the only all-girl Cub Scout Pack in Santa Cruz count.

"When we opened our pack we had just 9 girls and we quickly grew into one of the largest all-girl packs in the country," said Christine Wilkinson, Pack 673 Committee Chair. "Pack 673 incorporates all the great things scouting has to offer from leadership to first aid, citizenship to camping and survival skills, and just lots of fun, all around. We're looking forward to expanding and welcoming new members into our dens."

Pack 673 has a strong theme of environmental stewardship and outdoor recreation. With all the wonderful parks and open spaces all around the Santa Cruz Mountains, members have many opportunities to get outside to enjoy, learn about, and take care of the region.

Since the Charter Signing in February of 2018 the girls have already had a wide range of experiences. Learning and practicing to be good stewards of the earth through performing community service, learning leave no trace principals, character development as well as mental and physical fitness.

Activities this spring and summer included attending the Puppetry Institute, Pinewood Derby, Scout-o-Rama, Day Cub Camp with Nature Lodge, Felton Fire House visit with a female firefighter, community service project for Native Animal Rescue, San Jose Giants game overnight camping on the ball field, and starting the Monterey Bay Hikers Program, completing the Nicene Marks Hike.

Pack 673 is inclusive for all types of girls and families. Social skills and individual growth are important features of Pack 673. The pack is working toward individual and common goals including team building, life skills, self-reliance, resilience and encouraging adventure.

(0 A Aug 2018) CubScouts.jpgFamilies join Cub Scouts for a variety of reasons. Fathers are excited to share their scouting experience with their daughters. Some families may be new to the area or have children with mild special needs. Pack 673 provides an inclusive social network. Pack 673 also facilitates an education for those who love nature and want to go hiking or camping but aren't sure where to go or what equipment is needed with kids. Members also join for the chance to experience something new, to earn awards and participate in community service projects.

All Girls Cub Scout Pack 673 invites girls Ages K-5 grades to join
Sign Up Night Tuesday, September 4th 6:00pm
