Thank you for coming to Back to School night last Thursday. Mrs. Cluck and I enjoyed seeing all of your faces and connecting with you. It is so helpful for us to have the opportunity to get to know you and for you to get to know us. We pray 7th grade will be an awesome year for all of us!
We had a great time Friday afternoon letting the 8th graders ice bucket teachers. A donation was made from Zion Lutheran School to an non-embryonic stem cell ALS research organization recommended by LCMS. It was great fun!
Below is some information and reminders.
Remember that Zion is a peanut sensitive school. Please let your child know if they have peanut items in their lunches. They are required to sit at the "peanut table" and wash their hands after lunch. This is so important. Especially now, as we share the lunch room with the preschool students and the possibility of younger students with peanut allergies is a serious concern.
Also, all birthday treats are to be peanut free. If the label states that it was processed in a factory that may contain peanuts, we are NOT allowed to serve it. It is a big bummer to be unable to share a birthday treat with the kids. If you have any additional specific questions about the policy please contact the office. The link below is a great tool to help you choose safe snacks.
Please join us on the weekend of September 6 & 7 as we dedicate the final stage of the campus expansion. All of
the services (5 pm Saturday, 8 am & 10:30 Sunday) will be held in the gymnasium. A reception following each
service will be held in the commons. You will have the opportunity to tour all buildings at this time. Come join the
celebration of God’s Blessings!
Zion PTL Fall FundraiserSchool has started and we are well on our way to some fantastic events or the families. Our first event is the Zion Bobcat Shuffle which will be held on October 4, starting at 8:30 am, at the Cottleville City Park. Sign up sheets are available in the Welcome Center at the Church or in the school office. You can also sign up via www.eventcow.org and look under Bobcat Shuffle 2014. Sign up early so we can get the t-shirts ordered. There will be medals to the 3 fastest runners in the 5K in 4 divisions. We will also have a 1 mile fun run/walk if you just want to come out and take a stroll. Also, if you have a business that could offer sponsorship for the event or if you are interested in helping, please
contact Jan Vlassos at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 636-627-9651. We have $100 and $250 levels of

I hope you continue to have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
