ATTN Lego(TM) Derby - With the recent lock-down of El Paso, the Lego(TM) Derby has been moved back to December 16 in hopes we will be able to have the office open and staff run the derby virtually.

We have moved registration deadline back so there is still time to register.

If you need to pick up your car you can wait for our El Paso office to reopen or you can pay for shipping and we will happily send you the car kits (contact [email protected] to arrange this option). Same with completed car drop off - wait til the El Paso office is open or mail them to us (GSDSW, 225 E Idaho, Ste 9, Las Cruces, NM 88005).

If you have any questions, as always, please contact us [email protected].

Good Morning Volunteers, Girl Scouts, Parents, and Community Partners,

Just to give you all an update, the El Paso office has been closed completely following the recommendation from Judge Samaniego to help curb the spread of Covid 19. Girl Scouts of the Desert Southwest will be working with the most stringent guidelines in all of our areas just as we have stated in our reopening Covid 19 guidelines. The tighter guidelines in New Mexico will continue with no in person meetings. All staff in New Mexico and El Paso will be working remotely for at least the next two weeks.

If you need something from the office or retail store, please contact us thru [email protected] and we will work on filling your needs.

As changes come up, we will be letting you know.

Thank you all for your continued support and resourcefulness during this stressful time.

Yours in Girl Scouting,
Patty Craven
CEO

Believe in the Power of G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker and Leader)™

Girl Scouts extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success. Our Mission Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scout Promise On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law. Girl Scout Law I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Is fall product scratched for this year?
Is there any information available for Fall Product sales for the Carlsbad, NM area?? My girl scout was interested in participating. Thanks.
We enjoyed exploring state parks today on the interactive map! Fan favorite videos were the turtle talk from Ohio and the GSDSW video on using play dough to capture fossil prints, so we don’t cause harm. Thanks for a fun morning for Troop 18014. #nmgirlscouts

Thanks for hosting this leave no trace live! Drucilla and Marishka enjoyed it. :)
LEGO DERBY REMINDER - Please make sure your car meets race criteria for length, width, and weight! If they are over in any of these areas, they will not be able to race. Specifications are in your derby car kit.
So very sad we are switching to LBB cookies! Wonder why we weren’t asked our feelings in this. I don’t care to change! What is everyone else’s thoughts?
Hi everyone! So my Girl Scouts came up with a questionnaire to see how other peers feel or think about Media. If you have a female ages 10-14, have them answer these questions. You can comment answers or send them to me through private message. The deadline is this Friday so that I can present it to them.
I’ll try to post as soon as get the new schedule.
Here are some other Virtual Programs for week of 4/20-4/24
Dear Volunteers, Like all of you, we at GSDSW are deeply concerned about the spread and the impact of COVID-19 on our nation and the world. We had an executive team meeting today and have plans going into place to reduce exposure to our staff, girls, volunteers and community partners. Please watch for an email from me on Sunday afternoon or evening with a full outline of what we will be doing in response to the pandemic and threat to our communities. If you know someone who has opted out of our emails or does not receive them, please pass the information to them so they have the correct info. Additionally, this email tomorrow will be sent to all members including parents, troop leaders, service unit teams and episodic volunteers. In the meantime, with both the state of New Mexico and state of Texas declaring emergencies or disasters, and recommending no gatherings, we are recommending we move to virtual meetings and refrain from in person meetings at this time. Troops and Service Units can use different types of technology to meet remotely or work individually. There are even many badges that are tied to this type of work! The email you receive tomorrow will cover options you can use along with our full recommendations. We also encourage all of you to follow CDC recommendations and take precautions which can be effective at helping reduce the spread of the virus or any other flu or colds. During this time of need, please remember some key areas of our Girl Scout promise and law: help each other, be kind to one another, remember to be considerate and caring and stay courageous and strong. Most of all, be a sister to ever Girl Scout and encourage each other during this very stressful time. Yours in Girl Scouting, Patty Craven CEO of GSDSW
