Zion Trunk or Treat
October 27th, 2019
Save the Date: ZECEC will once again host a Trunk or Treat event on the
back lot of the school on Sunday, October 27. Trunk or Treat will take
place from 4-6pm. We are in need of
families to enter cars and pass out candy.
If you are able to enter a car in our event,
please contact Pam Kleckner at 635-2446
ext. 02 or email pam.kleckner@zionschool.
org. Cars will need to enter the lot
between 3:15pm and 3:45pm to set up
and be ready for trick or treaters to enter
at 4:00pm. If you are unable to enter a
car, but can donate candy for the event,
please drop it off at the daycare or church
office. We encourage all trick or treaters to bring a non-perishable food
item or personal care product and help fill a trunk. We will be “tricking”
hunger and “treating” the food pantry. We look forward to making this a
great event for Zion and the Staunton community.

From the Desk of the Prinicpal
As a teacher, administrator, or even a parent, you never know when a
teachable moment will arise. The goal is when they do, roll with it.
During the sand pit removal on the east side of the school building, I ran across
some interesting finds. The sand needed to be removed to provide a solid
base for the gravel lot that is to go in that spot. I generated a hypothesis
that the site was the buried remains of building materials for the
school. That would put the artifacts at 1910 or prior. My students seemed
intrigued. I set a plan into action to use an archaeological dig as a crosscurricular
lesson. Students will have Math, Composition, and Art
assignments based on our dig. The students had a blast.
Here's the bonus!
Well, you'll have to wait to hear about our findings and conclusions, but I
will say this... My hypothesis was proven false.
