Boone Meadow Friday Flyer

October 21, 2022

Dear Boone Meadow Families

We've had much activity these days following fall break, and exciting days are ahead as we make final preparations for conferences.

Family Conferences are Monday and Tuesday - October 24th (3:00-5:00PM) & October 25th (11:00-7:00).
  • We have a regular day of school on Monday with some conferences being held after school.
  • Tuesday - Remember, that Oct 25th will be an EDay for our students so that teachers can meet with families for conferences. Teachers will communicate EDay information with children/families as needed.

Jog-A-Thon was a success!
Over Fall Break, final donations were calculated, resulting in surpassing our school goal! Your generosity resulted in $22,728.05 for PTO! How wonderful to be in a community that lavishly supports the school. Your donations pay for field trips, assist with technology enhancement, support classroom projects and resources, and will contribute to our outdoor learning environments. A breakdown of prizes are listed in the section below.

Veterans Day- We will be back in person for our Veterans Day celebration on November 11th. (YAY!) Our students will perform for Veterans and their families @ 9:30 with a light reception prior to the program.

Smart watches - We've had an increasing number of incidents with student Smart watches that are disruptive or distracting during the school day. Parents, we thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance with your child on how to properly use the watch. Students should not be making calls or communicating with others via the watches during the school day. Per the ZCS handbook, "use of devices is at the discretion of the administration and teacher. Students must obtain permission before using such devices in class." With invasion of privacy or distracting/disruptive behavior, teachers and administration hold discretion to have students put devices away or confiscate. (ZCS Handbook, page 42-43) Thank you for assistance to create healthy learning environments for all learners.

Book Fair - Our book fair is coming soon. Please see information below for volunteer sign up. Book fair will be the week of November 14th.

Lunch Guests - We are now ready to accept "reservations" for lunch guests. Due to limited space and availability, students will meet with (up to) 2 guests in a quiet space away from the cafeteria. As we implement this new system/procedure, we will limit availability the first two weeks to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday visits. See information below for additional sign up information.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Lunch Guest Sign Ups

Lunch Guests

We are ready to welcome lunch guests! Students and their guests will have lunch at designated locations in the front lobby area. Please no more than 2 guests per student due to limited space. So that others may have the opportunity, we ask that you not sign up more than 1 time per month. As we implement this new system/procedure, we will limit availability the first two weeks to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday visits.

Here's how it works:

Scholastic Book Fair

The Book Fair is back and will run from November 14th-18th. Proceeds from the book fair benefit the school by providing resources and funds to support classroom endeavors.

For our book fair to run smoothly, we are in need of volunteers.

School Safety: Visitors & Volunteers Background Checks

When volunteers are needed and approved, appropriate staff members will reach out to you in effort to welcome your support and assistance.

If you plan to volunteer or visit in the future, please note the following information.

Click here for information regarding required Background Checks for volunteers: ZCS Volunteer Background Check


We value partnerships with our families and welcome parents and guardians to serve as volunteers in our schools. Each ZCS building typically offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. If you plan to assist as chaperones or engage with children in a volunteer capacity, we strongly recommend getting a criminal background check completed well in advance to have on file.

Examples include:

  • Field Trip Chaperones
  • Out of Town/Overnight Chaperones
  • Tutors
  • Volunteer Coaches
  • Classroom Helpers (PTO parties/room parents)
  • Library Helpers
  • After Prom Workers
  • Field Day/Jog-A-Thon Volunteers
  • Book Fair Sales/Athletic Ticket Sales

During the school day, all volunteers are expected to sign in at the front office. Prior to the volunteer opportunity, all volunteers must sign a Non-disclosure Acknowledgement Form and have successfully completed a Full Criminal History Background Check. Volunteers must also view the state mandated confidentiality/bullying video, provided on the Volunteer/BRAVO website.


During the school day, all visitors must enter via the front door and sign-in at the front office. Visitors need to be prepared to present a government issued photo ID which will be scanned against the National Sex Offender Registry. All visitors will be issued a visitor badge/tag to be worn inside the building at all times.

Examples Include:

  • Lunch Guests
  • Classroom Guest Speakers
  • Classroom Special Events (Grandparent Day/Famous Hoosiers/etc.)
  • Parent/Teacher Conferences

*ZCS thanks all volunteers for generous support of our youth and schools. Thank you, too, for supporting assurance of student and staff safety by completing and paying for a volunteer background check.
