No Hot Lunch!

Many Thanks to our hot lunch coordinator…We couldn’t have enjoyed the program as much if it weren’t for our hot lunch coordinator, Jamie Collyard! We thank you for always making sure there was a hot lunch for us every Wednesday! 

Whether it was serving lunch herself, coordinating with other parents to serve and always having the menu in the week before, we thank you for your dedicated service and look forward to next year. Bravo!

On Wednesday, May 1, an email from our tuition management company, TADS, should have arrived in your email inbox. Zion offers three payment options through TADS. If you would like to pay in full sometime in the month of May, you will receive a 10% discount. You can also choose two equal payments, the first is due in August (first half of the tuition amount) and second payment would be due in January (second half of the balance due). The third option is to make payments; first payment is due in August and the last payment is due in May.

Several families have applied for financial aid. Most of those awards should be known by the month of June. If you are participating in the UPK (Universal Preschool Program), you should receive a notification sometime in early Summer. When the award letters and or notification from the UPK program reaches Zion LS, your TADS account will be credited by the amount of the award as soon as possible. If you have any questions or need help navigating the TADS system, please reach out to Anne Saggau in the school office at zionsec@zion-wels.org or by phone at 303.985.2334.

PRESCHOOL

Show and Tell:

Friday, May 24, we will be having a joint PK, K, and 8th grade graduation ceremony. There will be NO regular preschool sessions this day. You are invited to come and see your child graduate in the church at 10:30am. (All students will be receiving a diploma even if they are returning to PK next school year). Please arrive to school about 10-15 minutes early so students may get lined up and ready in plenty of time. You will drop your child off in the classroom and proceed to find a seat up in the church. After the brief ceremony, you are all invited for an end-of-the-year school picnic outside to celebrate the last day of school! If you have any further questions, please contact Mrs. Monday.
