Thank you to all who attended the Kentucky Derby Auction Fundraiser. Friday evening was a huge success and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our Zion families. Thank you to those of you who donated items for the silent and live auction. We hope to have a final tally on the amount raised later this week. Congratulations to Greg and Julie Martin, winners of the free tuition drawing. If you need to finalize your account from Friday night, please stop by the school office after school and see Ms. Hueske.

The total raised from the Buck a Bag fundraiser is $1,729.00! That’s a lot of bags! Thank you for your donations. Receipts for your donations are available in the school and church offices.

PTL is once again planning the Annual Flower Sale, Saturday, May 7 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Volunteers are needed to help this event be a success. Follow the link to sign up: http://tinyurl.com/zlsfs2016. Volunteer sign-up sheets are also available in the school office. If you have questions, please call Nicki Maillet at 303-921-6752.

The 5th – 8th grade mission project will be to the David Clifton Ministries to pack food boxes for people in need. Donations are needed! The students need to collect as many canned goods in 1 week as they can! The students will be going to the ministry on Monday, April 25th. You can help by bringing tuna packs, food with easy open tabs like soup, and canned meat. Jars of peanut butter, granola bars and dry goods would be great! There are tables located in the school and church lobbies. Thanks for your help!
