Nativity School has long been home to both Boy and Girl Scouts for students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
Nativity Girl Scouts belong to the Northern California Branch, GSNorcal. Girl Scout troops begin as early as Kindergarten (Daisies) and move up to Girl Scout (Cadette). Our troop leaders are all volunteer parents and meetings generally happen after school, bimonthly. All of our Girl Scouts are active participants in community outreach and students learn valuable life skills that they take with them after their time at Nativity. The GS Norcal website can be found at:
