Disclaimers:  Most districts require that a disclaimer be placed on any flyer being distributed through the schools.  Please check the district policy before requesting forms. 

 

Flier Distribution

When ordering fliers for schools, remember to include kindergarten through fifth grade (about 22 fliers per classroom).

If girls or boys only units, plan on about 15 fliers per classroom (since about half the class is girls or boys).

 

Some schools allow a reminder card (invite) to be sent a day or two before the recruiting night event.

 
 

Boy Talks and Open Houses

 
 

Second Recruiting Night

Units are encouraged to hold two recruiting nights. The second recruiting night could be held at pack meeting or pack event in late September or early October. "It's not too late to join" fliers are available for 2nd recruiting events.

 

District Website Units Page

It is vital that parents can find your unit using internet searches. Please make sure your unit completes these two steps:

Verify the unit contact information on the Aquila District units page. Please make sure your unit’s information is correct.  There is a link at the top of the page to submit corrections to the webmaster.  Also, fill out our social media survey, so we can help promote your unit.

 

BeAScout.org

Make sure your unit’s information is correct on BeAScout.org, a national tool prospective families use to find units to join.

We suggest you list your feeder school(s) and/or church in the description. If your unit does not have a website, refer them to the district website (preferably the unit’s page, www.aqula.shac.org/units). The Cubmaster and committee chair have access to update the information. Helpful hints can be found at www.shac.org/beascout-instructions.
