I accidentally got cc’d on a unit’s service activity email list for a youth service activity: teaching Primary for Mother’s Day so that the women can attend Relief Society. I’m sharing it here without last names so you can use it as a template to plan a similar event in your area.
I always like this event when it’s done in our unit — it provides fellowshipping and a break for female Primary teachers, and it gives youth leadership and teaching experience. It’s a win-win.
I like how they let the youth know how many children are in their classes, the room number, who they’ll teach with, and the lesson number.
***** I’ve never seen it done before, but wouldn’t it be nice to do the same thing for male Primary teachers on Father’s Day, too? *****
PARENTS OF YOUTH:
This email is for your information and for you to encourage your daughter or son to follow through with this special service opportunity for Primary on Mother’s Day. Thank you for your help.
