Hot Lunch – 9/20 – Pizza, salad and dessert- $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

Students in  grades Kindergarten-Eighth grade visit the library once a week on Monday. Below you will find the procedure that is followed by the school faculty and students.

  • Students are able to check out a book for 1 week
  • Students may renew books for a second week (this allows more students access to popular books)
  • For a book forgotten at home, a note will be given to the teacher with the student’s name and the title of the book missing.
  • The student that has a missing book will still be able to check out books unless the teacher senses there is a problem to be communicated to the parent.
  • If there is a chronic issue with the returning checked out books, the teacher will communicate with the parents to improve the situation.


Zion’s School Support Committee (SSC) is hosting a “Back to School Skate Night” on Monday, September 25, from 4:00-6:00pm at Skate City in Littleton. This is a great way to mingle with other families in the school and get to know one another. The cost is $7 per skater (spectators don’t have to pay to get in), $4 roller skate rentals. Pay at the door. There will be Meal Deals for purchase at Skate City ($5 per meal deal). See the flyer for more details. Hope to see everyone there!
