KSU Nuclear Science Day

Nuclear Science Day at KSU!
On Oct. 24th, 2015 our Cadette troop got together with other area where Girl Scouts had an opportunity to go behind the scenes with a special tour of KSU's nuclear reactor. They measured the half-life of a radioactive isotope and saw demonstrations of several atomic-scale science experiments. They explored the advantages and disadvantages of nuclear power as compared to other common sources of electric power. Thank you, K-State for showing girls what is possible through STEM!

Brownie Snack badge

Brownie Troops and Alyssa, Hy-Vee Dietitian
The snack badge event was at Hy-Vee.  Ms. Alyssa had us make lots of snacks.  We made spinach smoothies, apple tarts, pistachio cupcakes and pepper nachos.  We had to use a blender to blend up the smoothies and lemon juice with water to keep the apples moist.  At the end we helped clean up and talked about the snacks and recipes.

In my opinion, I liked the spinach smoothies the best!

First Aid workshop

CTK Girl Scouts
On Oct. 3rd, Brownie troop 3099 hosted a First Aid workshop.  All of the girls made small travel kits to keep in their bags.  Park Ranger Michelle Campbell came to talk to us about poison oak and poison ivy.  While she was doing that, the other girls toured an AMR ambulance.  They learned about different medicines and tools they carry.  After all of that was done, we ate lunch and had a brief recess.  After lunch the older girls learned about splints and how to make them.  The younger girls practiced calling 911.  We all got back together and the older girls practiced making arm slings on the younger girls.  We then learned and practiced the Heimlich maneuver taught by Leader Linda.  We all talked about what we learned about.  My favorite part was touring the ambulance.

Rome Sweet Home

Sept. 26, 2015 our church, Christ the King celebrated its 30th anniversary and our school celebrated its 20th anniversary.  To celebrate this wonderful occasion our parish hosted Rome Sweet Home!

All of our Girl Scouts helped out inside the gym where dinner was provided by LaRocca's restaurant.  The girls helped carry food to tables, busing them and taking down tables and chairs when dinner was complete.  Olga from LaRocca's was very impressed with how well the girls helped out and Mr. John Russel was extremely grateful for all the help cleaning up after dinner.

This was the first service project for the school year that the Girl Scouts helped with.  Our next service project will be during the Fall Festival.

About Us

There is a wonderful community of Girl Scouts at Christ the King.  There are Girl Scouts in Kindergarten through 8th grade.  The leaders are very active within the church and school communities.  Leaders strive to teach the Girl Scouts with an adherence to our Catholic faith.  The Girl Scouts participate in many different service projects throughout the year, including the monthly Catholic Charities food drive and maintaining Aubrey’s rosary garden.  Each spring, the girls take part in the Girl Scout Sunday Mass, where they are presented with Catholic emblems and assist as flag bearers, lectors, and servers.
