Headstart at Curry Elementary

The Head Start Daisy program at Curry Elementary in Jasper is a 6-week program that gives low income children a head start before K-5. Throughout the program, the girls completed activities in the Girl Scout Daisy Journey book. They also learned the Promise, participated in the Friendship Circle and did several garden activities. The girls planted Daisy seeds in pots to watch them grow and dried some wild daisies by ironing them between pieces of wax paper. At the end of the program, the girls received certificates and Daisy pins at their graduation ceremony.
