March Primary Activity Day (Letter to Primary Teachers)

Dearest Teachers,
Thank you for being who you are! You are beyond wonderful and we are so thankful to have you in our Primary. We have a primary activity day planned for Saturday March 8, 2008 from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM. The theme for this activity day is, “Looking and finding the Savior, Jesus Christ. The true meaning of Easter.”
We are asking that you could please show up around 8:20 AM to help decorate and set up rooms. In these rooms will be members of the ward dressed up as people from the scriptures who “looked and found” the Savior. They will give a short 4-5 minute presentation/testimony as that person and then the children may ask a few questions. After all the rotations, we will meet in the cultural hall for a short skit given by these people, sing a song, have a resurrection from the tomb focused snack, prayer and clean up.
So… what are my responsibilities as a teacher for this day?
1. To help bring in and set up simple decorations for the room of _________________________. Ideas may include, but are certainly not limited to ______________________________________________________________________________

2. Take a small group of 4-5 children from each room to room. (Depending on how many children show up it may be a larger group with 2 teachers per group)
3. Keep track of time! Each group will be in that room no longer than 10 minutes! Ideally, each room will take 7-8 minutes.
4. Stay for 10 minutes afterwards to help take down decorations, clean up and make sure the church is in proper order.

Words cannot really express our gratitude for all you do to help insure our children are growing in the gospel. 1 John 4:14 says, “And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.” We hope and pray that this activity can help our children to feel the spirit and know the Jesus Christ really lives. Thank you again!
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

Much love,
Sister Lykes
