Red Ribbon Week
Students have enjoyed celebrating the healthy bodies God has given us and learning more about preventing drug abuse. Highlights of the week included special morning announcements by Student Council and planning and decorating our door. Student recalled a lot from their 5th grade D.A.R.E. experience, yet were still amazed by some of the facts presented by our STUCO. Kudos for a job well done!
Hark - The Students Lead Advent Worship!On Wednesday, December 5, at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m, grades 5 and 6 will lead the first Advent worship services at Zion Church. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students as they help our congregation prepare for the Lord's coming. Attendance is expected at both services, so please mark your calendars now and keep the date open. We are beginning preparations now for leading worship especially since these services are scheduled for the first week of December.
During the coming weeks, all students will learn songs selected to reinforce their message. Students will also have opportunities to try various roles in the service, such as special drama or music parts. Part of our Memory Work assignments will shift focus to learning songs and lines. Students will also have an opportunity to share their special musical talents. Any student who has had two years of music lessons or is in the Concert Band may offer to play for the services. Selections must be:
1) sacred music related to the Advent or Christmas seasons of the church year
2) practiced and ready to audition before Thanksgiving break – Tuesday, Nov. 13

Field Trip - November 26 Weldon Springs and BowlingSixth graders will have our first field trip on Monday, Nov. 26. NOTE - this is the first day back from Thanksgiving Break!!
For the morning, we will travel to Weldon Springs Interpretive Center to learn about radiation, environmental clean up, and the history of the disposal cell there. This ties into our geography study of the impact of humans on the environment.
For the afternoon, we will head to St. Charles Lanes to try our hand at bowling. This is a unique PE experience we can not provide on site at Zion.
We are seeking a few parent chaperones from 9:15 until the end of the school day. Also note, this will be a cold lunch day. Permissions slips with further details will come home AND NEED TO BE RETURNED the week before Thanksgiving.
