No Hot Lunch – 10/11 – Pizza, veggies, chips 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.

The SSC is putting on their first big event of the year, Zion’s annual Fall Festival. You don’t want to miss it! It’s happening on Friday, October 27, from 4:00-6:00pm, on our school/church property. The afternoon includes food, games, prizes, bouncy houses, face painting, music, as well as finishing the night with “Trunk or Treat” around the parking lot. Lots of volunteers are needed to make this evening happen. This event is also a great outreach tool to get our name out about our school and church.
