Three Southborough Girl Scouts — Emily M., Taylor F., and Alyssa B. — are developing a cheering program for kids with special needs as their Silver Award project. The Silver Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout aged 12 to 13 can achieve.
Tonight the girls will hold an informational meeting for parents at Algonquin. Here are the details.

What a fantastic idea! Thanks, girls!
Absolutely – it would be great to see a good turnout. Parents, please come along and learn about the class.
Sounds fantastic! Check out my website for a free downloadable Quick-Start kit, which provides a step-by-step model for how to create an inclusive cheerleading squad. The kit includes tips for successful practices, fundraising ideas and more! If your new squad will be cheering with typically-developing cheerleaders at middle school or high school sporting events, you may qualify for free uniforms and free on-site training from The Sparkle Effect! Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Best of luck to you!
This is such a great idea! Congratulations to the three girl scouts. I really hope the meeting tonight goes well, and I wish them all the best in this endeavor. Thank you for sharing their efforts! I look forward to hearing how the meeting went.
