Hot Lunch – Chicken noodle casserole, rolls, 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 jcollyard@gmail.com

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.

Show and Tell:

Our next and final color day of the school year will be on Wednesday, May 15. The color of the month is yellow! Please remind your kiddo to wear something yellow and bring along a yellow-themed show and tell. There will be a special snack provided. 

On 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 up 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.
