The grade school had their Open House last night.
Our school is a private Catholic gragde school. We have a Scout info table at school registration at the beginning of August. Along with info on the Pack, we also have fliers inviting folks to our Back to Scouting/School Picnic/Rocket Shoot. We hold our Pack Registration night the first Friday after school starts at the end of August. We also do Boy Talks, and hand out fliers inviting new families to attend our September Pack Meeting.
Public schools can be hit or miss on what they will allow Scouts to do. Having your District Exec. talk to the School District/School Board, can help a lot.
I agree with you that there should be a table.
Our DE has really been pushing hard to get adults in to the schools to have contact with parents / kids about scouting.
I went to roundtable this month and our person told us that there is no way
Well, our council merged with another council this past spring... We are now HUGE!
