“Music has a sweet power to promote unity and love in the family… it can exert a continuing influence for good well beyond times when children are small… remember, music has the power to provide spiritual nourishment. It has healing power. It has the power to facilitate worship."

Dear Primary Parents:                                                                                                                    October 19, 2021

The FRW Primary Sacrament Meeting Presentation will be held on Sunday, October 31st, 2021.  This is the end-of-the-year event we look forward to when the Primary children share what they have learned during their home-centered, Church-supported curriculum during this year.  They have also learned songs to share with the Ward during the program.  This is a wonderful opportunity to invite family, friends, neighbors and teachers to Church.

The usual format for the  Presentation has been necessarily modified due to the shorter Sacrament Meeting  schedule.  With the exception of two classes, the other Primary classes have parts that will be said in unison.  This coming Sunday, October 24th, will be the one practice for the Presentation.  As such, we are asking the parents’ assistance in helping your child/ren learn their class unison part.  Each class part is short. Also, due to the class size, some Primary classes will say their part with another class.

The unison class parts are:

Sunbeam and CTR 4 Classes (3 turning 4 and 4 turning 5 this year):  “Reverence is love!”

 CTR 5 class (5 turning 6 this year):  “Our Heavenly Father loves us!”

CTR 6 Class (6 turning 7 this year):  “I feel my Savior’s love!”

 Valiant 8 and Valiant 9 Classes (8 turning 9  and 9 turning 10 this year):  “I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!”                                          

Those in the CTR 7 and Valiant 10 classes have previously been given their individual parts.

Also, there will be classes for the next two weeks during Primary.  Please take your child/ren to the Primary Room where we will have the practice this week and a combined activity on the 31st.

As many in the Ward will remember that last year, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we had a video Primary Presentation.  We are excited to give a live Presentation during Sacrament Meeting this year. 

REMINDER:  We also want to take this opportunity to remind parents to take their child/ren for a drink and a restroom break prior to coming into Primary.  As a Primary Board, we are instructed to “encourage parents to take their children to the restroom before Primary.   During Primary, a young child must be taken to the restroom by a parent or legal guardian.  Leaders and teachers should not take children into the restroom.”                                                                                                                       {General Handbook, Section 12.5.4]

If needed, we will find you in class, but we have such short class and singing times, it is best if drinks and especially restroom breaks are done prior to coming into Primary.   Thank you for your help with this.

As a Primary Board, we are blessed to serve and be with your children each week during Primary.  We look forward to the Primary Presentation on October 31st and appreciate your help in this preparation.

Sincerely,

Your FRW Primary Presidency and Secretary
