Zion Lutheran School has a new and redeveloped website!  Our address will now be separate from our church’s.  The new address is zionschooldenver.org . Please visit it and take it for a spin.  The Resources dropdown is where current families will find helpful information.  We’d love to have you share our site with friends and family!

 

A Re-enrollment letter with a link to a google form and tuition information for next year was sent in a separate email last week.  If you did not receive it, please let us know so we can get that to you.  Please fill out that form by Friday, February 10.  Enrollment to those not currently in our school will open at the beginning of February. Here is a link to the form as well:  https://forms.gle/rjC57enhrBRMJ9LY7

 

Our school is excited to offer two options for Kindergarten next year!  We will continue to offer our Monday, Wednesday, Friday program and will add the option of 5 full days, Monday-Friday.  Please speak to Mr. Schaefer or Mrs. Hoover if you have any questions.

 

Our chapel offering this week was $38.40.  Our total offerings this semester are $80.40.  A new mission to support will be chosen soon.

 

Basketball Practice Thursday, February 1!  We will practice at Gold Crown- 150 S. Harlan in Lakewood.  In order to get to the gym by 3:30pm, players in grades 3-8 will be dismissed from school at 3:15pm. Students in those grades not playing basketball will go to Mrs. Merklinger’s room until 3:30pm.

 

Our first home basketball games of the season are next Friday, February 3.  Our games are at Gold Crown vs. Lord of Life.  The B-game begins at 2:30pm followed by the A-game at 3:30pm.  We play the games early because court time is not available after 5:00pm.  That being the situation, the basketball players and cheerleaders will be dismissed from school at 2:00pm.  Students not on the teams will remain with Mrs. Merklinger and Mrs. Hoover until the regular pick-up time of 3:30pm.  GO PANTHERS!

 

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, “How Can We Model Good Listening Skills for Our Children?”  https://forwardinchrist.net/model-good-listening-skills/

 

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!  https://wels.net/serving-you/devotions/family-devotions/
