The school year is poised to begin! We hope everyone who is a returning scout as well as new and prospective scouts are ready to begin a great journey this year! The Pack 883 leadership are gearing up for an exciting year that is starting off with a bang!
First, we are engaged in several efforts to reach out to prospective scouts and families at David Elementary and Sally K. Ride Elementary. This year is the first year the both campuses have closed the campus to our outreach efforts on Meet The Teacher night as well as Parent Information Night. This hampers our on-site presence for personally engaging with prospective scouts and families, but we are planning several other ways to reach out to families. This is where you, as returning scout families, can make a huge difference!
Our first effort is word-of-mouth. Families you know, friends of your scouts, and meetings within the classroom offer the best opportunity for one-on-one interaction with prospective scouts. While our Pack cannot be present, we can always discuss and promote scouts individually to everyone we meet. So our best outreach is with you.
Another outreach we are pushing is through Facebook and this website. Our Pack 883 has this website and TWO Facebook groups. One Facebook group is a public page for anyone to see, and the other is a closed group in which we use to organize with members of Pack 883 and also publish media of our scouts in action. We want all scouts and families to be members of BOTH!
Public Facebook Page for Pack 883: Cub Scout Pack 883
Private Facebook Group for Pack 883: Cub Scout 883
When you "like" the public Facebook page, please Share the group on your own Facebook feed. The potential to reach other families via social media is powerful! If you are a member of other groups that include families in The Woodlands, sharing within that group also expands our outreach. While we primarily have scouts from David Elementary and Sally K. Ride, we are not limited to only those schools. You are our greatest recruitment tool!
