Zion Lutheran School - News & Events


Pajama Day - Fri., Dec. 3

Wear a Pair/Give a Pair. Our school will be participating in Scholastics Pajama Program this year. The pajama program asks individuals to donate a pair of new pajamas to be given to someone in need while Scholastic donates a book. Several years ago when our school participated in this program our pajamas were donated to a women's shelter in Springfield. Each child who opts to wear their pajamas to school on Friday, December 3 is asked to bring in a new pair of child size pajamas to donate. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Mrs. Kleckner.

PTL Christmas Gift Shoppe - Fri., Dec. 3

We know that many students look forward to the Christmas Shoppe. It is a tradition that allows students to select Christmas presents for their family at a reduced cost. It is NOT a fundraiser. It is something PTL does for a service. Our volunteers score for the best prices on items all year round so children can purchase gifts for their loved ones. All gifts are $4 and below.

Items requested are gift bags, large shopping bags to take items home, and gift tags. We also need volunteers! To volunteer, please go to the Sign Up Genius sign up form. The site is: https://www.signupgenius.com/.

The shifts are: Thursday, Dec. 2 – 4:30-8:30pm -Set Up (can come any time during that shift to help) Friday, Dec. 3 -8:00am – 12:00pm- Elf Duty – Need lots of help at this shift helping the younger children shop as gifts for family members are a surpise!
