Hot Lunch – Chili cheese (or regular) dogs, chips, cuties (Mandarin oranges) and cookies – $5

Hot lunch is served every Wednesday for grades K-8. While the hot lunch coordinator, Jamie Collyard, serves most lunches throughout the year, she always welcomes parent volunteers to either help with the lunch or sign up to prepare and serve a hot lunch themselves. If you are interested one way or the other, please contact Jamie at

The Zion LC Annual Easter Egg Hunt is just around the corner! Kids ages 0-11 are invited to a morning of fun activities culminating with the biggest Easter egg hunt west of I-25! It all happens on Saturday, March 30, from 10-11:30am. Simply scan the code on the left or  on the posters hanging around the school. You can also call the office (303.985.2334) and that’s it, you’re all set. See you there!

Zion LS wants to let you know about the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to help with the cost of your child/children’s tuition through ACE Scholarships. If you haven’t heard of ACE, they are a K-12 scholarship program dedicated to providing scholarships that are purely needs-based for families who meet the income qualifications.

The 2024-2025 ACE Scholarships application is now open and will be through tax-day on April 15, 2024.

Information sheet is attached to today’s memo (2024-2025 Zion Tuition schedule is also included). There you will find income qualification information along with other information, including a QR code that will take you straight to the application process.

You can also apply by clicking on the following link,

You will need to complete the application itself, attach forms of taxable and nontaxable income verification, and submit a $35 processing fee to FACTS anytime between February 5 and April 15.

Scholarship award decisions are made per student (not per family) and will be made after the application closes for all. Families will be notified of awards in May/June.


Did you know that you can access the Friday memo on our website? Go to and click the resources tab, scroll down to the bottom right of the page. Click on any memo to take you to the current memo for the week.  All memos are archived there in one convenient location.


A  link on Parenting topics for you to explore each week comes from our WELS magazine- Forward in Christ.  Please check it out.  There will be a variety of material including articles and podcasts.  Here is this week’s link about, “Parenting and Technology.”


Family Devotion Time is such a blessing not only for children , but also parents.  Here is a link to family devotions that are published 3 times a week.  On this page, you can also choose to have them delivered to your email account.  (This can be a great reminder for doing these on a regular basis.)  May God bless your time spent in devotions together!
