Mr. Zagel plans to be back to work on Monday, October 12. We had previously thought he’d be back yesterday, October 5. However, his doctor believes that one more week will be beneficial to his overall recovery. Please keep him in your prayers!
Amy Seifert, Zion’s bookkeeper, is also dealing with a medical issue. Amy’s liver has been slowly failing and she is now in need of a liver transplant. A donor appears to be found, but several more tests are needed to ensure a correct match. If all goes well, Amy will hopefully have a liver transplant within the next two months or so. She will then be recovering from surgery for a period of 6 months or so. Please keep her in your prayers! In the meantime, Lori Morgan a member of Zion Lutheran Church will be handling all of the accounting responsibilities. If you have any payment issues or questions, please contact the school office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you in advance for your patience as we make this transition.
Welcome to Zion Lutheran School as we begin our 2015-2016 school year! I would like to share my appreciation to our returning families for continuing to make Zion your choice for educating your child(ren). To our new families, we joyfully welcome you into the Zion family.
Since this is our first school-wide communication of the year, I’d like to mention a few things that will help to make this year a smooth and successful one. The following informational bullets will be beneficial to you and your child(ren)…
- Put Jesus 1st in your life
- Punctual attendance is expected, school starts @ 8:00am each school day, be here as early as 7:30am – Parents it is imperative that we get started on time each day, so we ask that you exit the building by 8am each day, unless you are volunteering for a teacher, in which case check in at the school office to receive a visitor pass
- If you haven’t yet, activate your Edline account – Starting August 31, your child’s grades (1-8) will be available on the school website — check your child’s grades weekly and hold them accountable for missing work.
- Communication is the key, read the Lion’s Roar found on the website and emailed to each family, teacher’s weekly newsletters, and email teachers when necessary.
- Become very familiar with Zion’s website, it has useful information. Check out the “Parent Information” tab for most of your school forms and schedules.
- Make sure your child is wearing appropriate attire each day for a Christian school. Our dress code policy can be found on the website. (no mohawks or spaghetti strap shirts)
- If you ever have a concern with a teacher or staff member, please speak to them directly first. If concern is resolved great, if not speak with the principal or ECE director. Following this process is Biblical and helps to minimize issues and concerns.
Again, I am excited to start a new school year and look forward to working with you as we seek to educate your child(ren) spiritually, emotionally, physically, and academically.
Zach Brewer, Principal

The Lion Award is given to honor those students who exhibit positive, Christian traits in five basics areas; scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship. Each week teachers and staff, grades K-8, will choose student recipients based on their behavior and actions the previous week to be honored in chapel in front of their peers. Students who are recognized in one or more of the five areas mentioned above will receive a Zion car magnet as our way of honoring them for their Christian behavior! The idea behind the program is to encourage Christian behavior and reward them for it, and to balance that out with the current system of disciplining those who do not.
Congratulations Lion Award Winners!
Briton Beaver – 1st Grade
Payton Pawlak – 1st Grade
Dominic Petrocco – 1st Grade
