SIGN IN/CHECK OUT
Parents and Guardians, please remember to sign in and check out your student if they arrive late or are leaving early. Even if Miss T is not there, please fill out the white paper on the clipboard. We want to keep our students safe and know where they are. Also, if you are coming to volunteer please fill out a sheet in the office so we know there are more people in the building. Thank you for helping us keep our school safe.
Vaccinations Records!
Parents and Guardians, the office will be sending out emails if your student is past due on any vaccinations. Please get them done ASAP and give the report to Miss T.
We need spare clothes!
Our spare clothing pile is getting low on a few sizes. If you have clothes size 24 month to 6x for girls and boys- bring them into the office! We will put them in our spare clothing for accidents or spills. Thank you Zion families!
NO School!
Just a reminder that there is no school next Wednesday through Friday. The following Monday will be a normal school day. The ELC will be open during those days off and will take school agers if needed- they must be registered.
The Giving Plate
You might hear of the Giving plate going around the school. Mrs. Ulrich started a giving plate that will circulate around the school giving goodies to families and school staff. The goal is to have it reach everyone in the school before the year is up. If you are given the giving plate, make/buy some treats for a family and give it to them! Be sure to write your name on back of the plate so everyone gets a chance to give/ receive. If you would not like to participate, you can give the plate to the office and we will give it to another family for them to start.

This is a great way to get to know all of the Zion family! Thank you Mrs. Ulrich for this great idea!
Thank you Zion!!!
We have reached- and PASSED- our book fair goal of $1500! Thank you for helping provide books for teachers and for raising money for our school!
Yearbook is starting!
Yearbook will be starting this Tuesday, October 2nd, in Mrs. Peterson's classroom. The yearbook group will meet every Tuesday from 3:15 to 4:15. Middle school students who are interested in the designing this year's yearbook should plan to attend on Tuesday.
SRIP for sale!
Thank you for your patience as I learn all the new websites! The office is now accepting SCRIP orders. The order sheet is outside the office door. Turn them in to the office and we will get them for you! Thank you- Miss T
Parents!
If your child has a need for medication (cough, ibuprofen, tummy ache, allergy, etc) throughout the year, the office can keep some for your student. We ask that you bring it in the original packaging with their name on it. We are happy to keep it here so your student can learn without distractions!

Volunteer Hours!
We are glad to have volunteers help our school! If you would like to volunteer in a classroom, we will need to have a background check before you start. There are forms right outside the office- fill them out and give them to Miss T. Be sure to keep track of your hours. There are sheets outside the office in the box. Please take one and turn it into the basket outside the office. Mrs. Kontra will take them and keep track of them.

Coming soon...... We will have a volunteer hour sign up on the bulletin board. Teachers and staff will write down item that they need help with. Keep an eye out for the sign up sheet next to the office!
