Family Engagement

Dear Zion Families,

Hi, I am Natalie Yeager. The After School Program Director and Family Engagement Specialist. Zion’s 21st Century Grant provides a lot of after school activities for our students from 3:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m daily. I’d like to invite you personally to our first Family Engagement Event for 2023.The event is January 31st. Attached is a flier/ registration form. We send out a registration form for each event to prepare for our activities. We take each name and enter into our drawings for “Make & Take” kits, so you can experience these fun activities at home together. 

You may be wondering what a Family Engagement Event is? It’s an event that provides activities for the whole family. It builds the bridges for students, parents and community to our school.
