Vanguard Jr. Schedule and Mentor Duties

Vanguard Moms,
The rotation for Vanguard Jr. mentors is up on the blog!
I have also attached a chart to this email. (to the original email)
Please look it over and find your assignment.  If there is an issue with your days please try to swap with someone or if it will need to be changed permanently let me know and I will get it fixed.  We will have the same schedule each month. 
I have also attached a schedule of how the day will go for each group.  Check it out so everyone is familiar with how the day will go each week.
We have three groups of different ages. 
Vanguard Junior (ages 8-11) -  A scaled back version of Vanguard that follows the same topics of study.  The weekly mentor is expected to provide inspirements a week in advance from the week you are assigned.  Please send them to Melinda Gilbert <> to post on the blog.  We will follow the same four week lenses rotation as regular Vanguard. So, next week will be LEADERSHIP. 
Littles (5-7) - The mentor is expected to provide a 45 minute lesson and activity based on the monthly topic studied in Vanguard. 
Nursery (0-4) - The mentor is expected to provide a 30 minute lesson and activity time that is age appropriate.
If you have any questions please contact me.  Thanks for everyone's input and efforts to make this work.

Planning Meeting


Dear Moms,

A meeting for all moms to discuss Vanguard Jr. will be held Friday, September 20,10:30 am.  We will meet at Harvey Park (910 Mountain Rd. Fruit Heights 84037) which is very near Westminster Presbyterian Church (796 Mountain Rd. Kaysville 84037) where master class is held and where we hope to move Vanguard to. 

We'll be discussing how Vanguard Jr. will be organized and run each week, the blog, we'll make assignments for weekly class mentors, and snack rotation. 

According to the bylaws every mom is to take a turn helping with this younger group, even those who only have Vanguard youth. (This was recently explained to me.) So I am happy to get the opportunity to work with everyone. We have a wonderful group of younger children who are eager to learn and by everyone pitching in we can have a great program for them.

The park is behind the city hall and has a small playground if it's necessary to bring your children. 

Please try to make it if you can. It will really be best to have everyone meet together so we can have a great program for our children. After this initial meeting we hope to be able to take care of Vanguard during the monthly parent meeting, 2nd Saturday morning at 8 each month.
