Blue Notes- April 11th, 2022

Dear Zion Parents:

We wish you and your family a Blessed Holy Week as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection this Sunday on Easter.   There is NO chapel this Wednesday but all students will be attending Holy Thursday and Good Friday services at 10 a.m.  Both are open to parents and members of the congregation. 

ATHLETIC SOAP SALE- Our athletic director, Mrs. Black is sponsoring a soap/cleaning product fundraiser sale to help supplement the cost of our athletic program.  These are all products you probably buy and consume on a regular basis but can buy them for about 1/2 the cost you pay in the store through school.  Our sports participation fee  only covers 1/3 of the actual cost of approximately $100 per participate when you take into account a small coaches stipend, cost for officials, supplies, uniforms, equipment.  Attached to the Blue Notes are handouts about the sale and a hard copy will be sent home with your child.   

Attached to the Blue Notes is Auction Information, Athletic Soap/Cleaning Product Fundraiser and Marengo Tackle Football.
