I have a couple questions regarding the start zone for 4th grade children in particular.
1) If we have a new 4th grader starting club...they are given the Mission:Evidence of Grace book...and they complete the start zone portion of the book. Mozo does not alert us to them finishing the start zone. Typically, we would hand out their shirt at this time. When a 3rd grader completes the start zone in Mission:Grace In Action...we do get notified of a "Start Zone" award. Is there a reason for the system not to show a "Start Zone" award in the Mission:Evidence of Grace book? What would be the best way to alert us that a new 4th grade clubber has completed their start zone?
2) One the topic of the start zone...in the past we always had the clubber complete the start zone once for whatever grade they were in and then they no longer have to repeat it. In the current Mission books, for 3rd & 4th graders, the start zone is in each one. Is it Awana's intention that clubbers repeat the start zone each year?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
Thank you so much for reaching out with these questions, we appreciate our users giving feedback and asking questions.
First, you are completely correct that your clubbers in Mission: Evidence of Grace should also be getting a prompt for having completed the Start Zone sections. We will get this fixed as soon as possible so that you do get the proper prompting to ensure your students get their shirts and handbooks at the correct time.
Second, we have made the switch that instead of doing an “entrance booklet” once, that we do recommend this be done every year, by every club. This is because the entrance booklet has the gospel presentation for each club at an appropriate level for comprehension. We believe the gospel is vitally important and we recommend it be done each year so that it is always fresh in the clubbers’ minds as they start the Awana year.
If you have any further questions or need any assistance, please never hesitate to contact Mozo help or Awana Customer Care.
Hi Troy- Just an update- I just finished testing and implementing the award for the Start Zone under Mission: Evidence of Grace. Now when your students complete the start zone, the proper award prompt will show up so you can be sure you’re awarding shirts and books at the proper time.
Please never hesitate to reach out with questions or suggestions, and have a blessed day,
