In the church plan provision is made for the needs and development of every age group. So itis fitting that the Sunday School which encompasses all age groups should have been the firstorganization to become active, June 26, 1898, right after the first families came to the Valley. Fromthat first tentative beginning with a superintendent, Samuel Carter, and two teachers, William H. andDelle R. Ivins, a somewhat more complete organization was effected the next year, 1899, withWilliam A. Terry, Superintendent, William H. Ivins and Ras Millen, Counselors, Robert Ashby,Secretary and presumably teachers. This was done under the direction of Bishop Judd before thestake authorities came to organize the different auxiliaries.

When the stake authorities came in November 1900, W. A. Terry was retained as Superintendentand W. H. Ivins as first Counselor with Robert Chadburn replacing Ras Millen as second Counselorand Ella Baxter taking Robert Ashby's place as Secretary. In the ensuing years a number of menserved as Sunday School Superintendent, Heber C. Smith, Samuel Alonzo Gardner, Claude Fawcett,Thorley Fawcett, Hugh Reid, Benjamin Sinfield, Anthony Ivins, Gardner Scow, Milton Gardner,Clinton Scow and Vance McKenzie.

As an extension of the Sunday Sacrament meeting, the class work of the different age groups isconcerned with spiritual and religious training. The Sunday School's chief contributions to theholiday season are its special programs at Christmas, Easter and the Twentyfourth of Ju!y stressingthe spiritual meaning underlying the observance of these holidays. A float in the Twenty-fourthparade each year carries out this theme in a variety of ways.

Separation of the youngest members of the Sunday School from the main group has resulted inmore effective teaching of the three to eight year olds. This was accomplished by the organizationof the Junior Sunday School in June 1952. Elinor Gardner was the first Coordinator with GeraldineOxborrow as Assistant. Other coordinators have been, Juanita Hendrix, Joyce Ivins, Darlene Reid,Alice Hendrix and Sharon McKenzie.
