Hello Redwood City Girl Scout families,

Every year Girl Scouts form new troops especially at the Kindergarten level.  As you probably know all troops are led by parents.  There is a recruitment event on Wednesday, September 11th at the Redwood City Public Library Community Room from 7-8.  This is for all families with Kindergarten-5th graders interested in learning about Girl Scouts and how they can form troops at their school or in the community.   RSVP at

If you have a friend who is interested in starting a troop they should check out our website at for more information.  The first step in starting a new troop is to fill out a Troop Number Request Form and this will trigger the entire process of starting a troop.  Training and support is given to all new troop leaders.

Occasionally, exiting troops have openings.  The place to look and see what’s available is the Troop Catalog at  If a troop is found that will work they can register at

If you need any support with renewing or any other general Girl Scout questions please contact Member Services at 1-800-447-4475 ext. 2095.


Our school relies on contributions from families like yours to pay for programs that enrich the learning experience for all Henry Ford Mustangs. Please consider a donation of  $250 or more, but any amount is gratefully accepted. 

For full contributions include your child’s name, room number, and preferred t-shirt size in the notes. Separate donations for each child please.

In-person donations by cash, check, or credit card can be made at Maze Day!

We also have a monthly installments program at
