I think it's a good idea. You can make it a closed or private group that people have to be invited to.
Yes, it is a closed group. Only those that I invite can see what is posted. Actually, the group is mostly for the parents, not the kids themselves. I want to get the parents more involved.
Iggy, you are correct...the new curriculum is for YM/YW and youth Sunday school.
However, my students will be moving up to these programs at some point during this year. In our ward, as soon as Valiants turn 12, they can choose to move directly into the YM/YW and Youth Sunday School classes without waiting for the beginning of the next year.
So, I wanted to provide a place where parents can see what lessons are coming up, what scriptures we are reading...etc. This will also get the parents and kids more prepared for the new curriculum in Youth that is supposed to be more inclusive of parents.
Also, being in a VERY small town and ward, everybody involved is already friends on fb and half are related by blood, the other half by marriage. So, no worries about privacy!
But as I said, it is a closed group.
Thanks for the feedback!!
