August 29-Sept. 2

Dear Parents,

This week in chapel, Mrs. Haun talked to us about her mission trip to Belize.  She showed us the Bible that will be sent to children in Belize!  Exciting to think about what our offerings can do for other people to learn about Jesus!!!

Information for the week(s):

*Field Trips Chaperones:  After putting names in the hat, the following parents will be chaperoning:

Botanical Garden:  Jill Walker, April Westerhold, Kim Bertel, Melanie Acker, Dawn Walgate

St Louis Symphony:  Mark/Jamie Buehrle, Adrienne Collins, Laura Hugo, Kim Rupert, Kristy Dose

Please make sure to have a background check on file with the school office.  Call/email Julie Schmidt, Zion’s secretary, to get the process started.  We are in the process of scheduling one more off campus field trip for the spring and we will also have Immigration Day which we will need lots of parents to help with in the spring!  So blessed to have so much support and help from all of you!!!!
