PEACH Girl Scouts
Homeschool Christian Girl Scout Cluster
PEACH's Girl Scout Cluster provides a nurturing Christian environment where our girls build skills for success in the real world. We work so that girls can develop qualities that will serve them all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self worth. Girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of personal responsibility, the value of goal-setting, the spirit of teamwork, and the thrill of accomplishment.
Our Girl Scout Kick-Off Meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 5th, members can find more details on our PEACH Yahoo group.

Spell to Write &
Read Texas in Frisco
The Spell to Write and Read Texas trainers are coming to Frisco August 24-25th to teach a seminar!!! If you are interested in this curriculum, this is THE PERFECT time to learn. The program is not an easy one to look at and understand without spending time reading the book and asking questions because it is not set up like a lot of other choices on the market. Yes, it does take more effort on the teacher's part than other programs, but I believe that the rewards are far worth it for the students. This training opportunity in Frisco is a dream come true for me and I am so excited to have this training available!
