Parents and Scouts,

Next Monday’s troop meeting will be an advancement meeting at which the Scouts will work on ranks or merit badges.  The following classes will be offered:

1.  Scout rank (Troop 1.5)
2.  Tenderfoot rank
3.  2nd Class rank
4.  Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge
5.  Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge
6.  Citizenship in the World Merit Badge
7.  Communications Merit Badge
8.  Cooking Merit Badge

Candidates for 1st Class rank are encouraged to work on one of the Eagle-required merit badges.  (The 1st Class rank advisors will be available to consult and sign off requirements.)

In terms of progress toward the higher ranks of Life and Eagle Scout, it’s important that every Scout earn a rank or Eagle-required merit badge this spring.  Continuous progress is needed if those higher ranks are to be achieved. 

If working toward a rank, the Scout should bring with him a sign-off sheet and work toward getting signatures.  Also, bring this sheet to the camp this weekend and try to get signatures there.  Sign-off sheets can be found on the troop website:  https://www.troop2bsa.org/rank-advancement.  Every time signatures are added, the Scout should copy or photograph the updated sheet in case of loss.

Parents, if you have questions or concerns about troop protocols or procedures related to advancement, please contact me.

Finally, if you would like to assist in teaching one of the classes listed, please let me know.  We have lead instructors for each class, but they could use some help.  Please volunteer—it’s a great way to meet some outstanding boys while contributing to the troop!
