Students at Zion Lutheran School celebrated Easter this past Wednesday, March 27. In their weekly Chapel time, the children sang songs in remembrance of each part of Jesus' death and resurrection starting from Palm Sunday through Easter. Their final song, "Listen, God is Calling," was about witnessing to others.

Families were invited to a ham luncheon at 11:30 a.m. The parents shared a dish to pass, with the school providing the ham. After lunch, the children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt. Zion has many volunteers who helped serve at the luncheon as well as hide eggs, and the students love having family members involved. Zion holds family meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas as well, which are always a favorite of the children.

Zion Lutheran School enrolls children from preschool through grade 5 in a Christ-centered environment with high academic standards in a loving, family-like atmosphere, and a great student to teacher ratio. Limited scholarship funds are available for families in financial need.
