GOTR is a program that not only teaches girls about healthy bodies, but healthy minds and self confidence. The cost for registration is $155, but as always families who need financial assistance in order for their girl to participate will be given an opportunity to request that support during the registration process. To sign up, please visit GOTR Registration and choose “Alexander Hamilton”.


The Hamilton Daisy Girl Scout Troop is open to girls in kindergarten and first grade. This year we plan to have lots of fun making crafts, singing songs, enjoying new experiences, earning Daisy petals and badges, selling Girl Scout cookies and learning about what it means to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Our troop will meet every other Tuesday from 2:45 to 3:45pm.  The first meeting will be held Oct. 10 in room 102.    

We are looking for 2-3 Kindergarten parents to become co-leaders and help with meeting preparation and facilitation.  No Girl Scout experience is necessary!   Please reach out if you are interested.

To enroll your daughter or to ask questions about the Daisy program, please contact Jen Kalmus and Valerie Harrell at HamiltonDaisyScouts@gmail.com.
