Clarke Street School in Milwaukee helps Girl Scouts celebrate 100 years
Happy Birthday Girl Scouts!
According to historical record, the first Girl Scout troop formed in the state of Wisconsin back in May, 1917.
On Friday, Governor Scott Walker and Mayor Tom Barrett proclaimed the day Girl Scouting Day in the City of Milwaukee and throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
MPS brought current and former girl scouts together to pat themselves on the back, but also join in on some activities centered around helping the scouts with their learning curves in math and science.
"They have a number of classes built around financial literacy, STEM and having healthy relationships," explained MPS Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver. "Really! So many positive attributes that have to do with having a happy childhood and being a responsible adult."
Dr. Driver is a scouting alum and was impressed by how many were in the crowd at Clarke Street School standing up and proud to have served and holding true to the Girl Scout motto "to help people at all times."
