Scouting Fun During the PPS Strike

by | Nov 1, 2023 | News, Parent Tools, Tools | 0 comments

Hello wonderful Scout families!

As you know, Portland Public School teachers have gone on strike.

So, it’s time for another pivot to occupy kids for the day when they can’t be in school.

CPC Impact & Retention Executive, Deb Hilterbrand, (who is also a Super Scout Mom!) has been collecting options for our Scouting families during this time, because, you know, a Scout is prepared!

Bonus: some of the activities she’s found will also check off requirements for advancements! (Please note that some activities cost money, but many are free.)
