Area Plan Evaluation
How are we doing? In October 2019, our Sandpoint Stake Presidency asked that all organizations review the Area Plan that was presented almost a year ago. All of the area goals apply to Primary, especially Encouraging the Rising Generation. Consider how your ward/branch is progressing this past year with encouraging the children to share the gospel with friends, invite friends to activities, visit the temple, tell experiences about the temple, talk about future mission plans and so on.

Calendar of Upcoming Events
Stake Primary Newsletters
The monthly newsletters you receive in your email tell the latest announcements from Salt Lake and from Sandpoint Stake. You will also get ideas from around the stake on singing and activities.
You can go back and read past newsletters to access all those ideas.
If you are not getting the newsletters and want to, email us with your correct address.
Family History in Primary
Our stake is emphasizing family history and the temple across all quorums and auxiliaries. We need to be talking about these important parts of the Church in Primary and activities. Go to the Family History and Temple page to learn more about how you can include family history and the temple in your programs.
Share this site!
This web site was created to assist the ward and branch Primary Presidency in their callings and as they instruct and train local teachers and leaders.
Please become familiar with the resources, training, and events in each area.
Share this information with Primary teachers and leaders.
We want your ideas!
We love to share ideas from wards and branches in Sandpoint Stake. If you have had a great activity, discovered a great way to organize a scout event, or figured out how to make your children love singing, we want to hear it.
Pictures are amazing! We want them, but we also need you to get permission from parents of any photographed children before you send them to us to post online. We will never post the names of children online. You can use this consent form. We are serious about respecting parent's rights to decide if their children can be posted online.
