    Why Should Your Daughter Be A Girl Scout?

    By becoming a Girl Scout, your daughter will reach her potential in an all-girl environment. We will help her develop confidence, strong leadership and social skills, a social conscience, a conviction about her own potential and self-worth, and moral, ethical and social values that will provide her the foundation for a successful future.

    Our programs focus on topics and issues that are relevant to girls today.
    They are:

    -        Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

    -        Self-esteem

    -        Financial Literacy

    -        Health and Wellness

    -        Anti-Violence Education

    The Herricks Parent Education and Community Awareness Committee (PECA) is comprised of PTA Council, Herricks Youth Council and Herricks School Administrators.  PECA members include parents, school officials, and other concerned residents and leaders in the Herricks School community.

    Our purpose is to help parents as they try to raise their children in the midst of today’s significant challenges. We hope to provide useful information, educational programs and material as well as raise the awareness of the Herricks community about the numerous issues that parents and children face in today’s rapidly-changing society.  

    We will employ a variety of strategies to meet our objectives: listserv communication; interesting and informative workshops; public service announcements as well as an updated website that will give the community access to important resource material to help them address a wide variety of issues. All of this is vital to foster healthy and safe children in a society where new and dangerous trends seem to be popping up all the time.

    PECA is committed to a model where the entire community-at-large participates. That’s why we invite all areas of our Herricks community to get involved.
