Dear ZLS Parents:
School begins in approximately one month, on Wednesday. August 14th. Our school theme this year is based on 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” The Lord desires a relationship with each of us! What a precious gift/relationship that is. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 is a great reminder of how blessed we are (forgiven people – eternal life) and that we can rejoice in all circumstances even when things are tough. We look forward to partnering with you as we strive to instill this biblical principle in our students, your children.
