Spring 2022 PVE Family Input Form - Due Friday, May 13th

Dear Current (and Future) PVE Families,


Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your child's learning experience this year, along with input as we consider planning for next year. The input you provide in this survey serves two purposes. First, it provides us the opportunity to reflect on our strengths and areas to improve as a building. We readily admit that we, as a staff, must continually reflect and be open to feedback in order for improvement to become a reality. Secondly, the input you provide supports our planning efforts as we strive to create the optimal classroom placement for each student for the 2022-2023 school year.


Please understand that this survey serves as the primary and most effective way for parents to communicate with administration their thoughts about next year's class placement. Please refrain from requesting a specific teacher, and instead focus on the learning style, classroom supports, and interests that most benefit your child. Please complete this form by Friday, May 13th so we may have the opportunity to adequately review your input before the end of the school year.


Your partner in education,
Stacy - PVE Principal

Hindu Event at Hussey-Mayfield Library

The Hindu Community of Boone County, Indiana in collaboration with Zionsville Community Schools and the Zionsville Public Library would like to invite you to this free exhibition to understand Hindu culture and its civilization. This exhibition - Darshana - portrays the 'Hindu way of life,' or Hindu Civilization, which evolved in the Indian subcontinent for over 5000 years.


Over the past two centuries, the Western world, including the United States, has been steadily introduced to Hindu principles and practices, such as Yoga, meditation, vegetarianism, and Ayurveda, the science of holistic medicine, which are now popularly practiced and accepted.


This exhibition, with vivid illustrations and lucid descriptions of 24 different topics related to Yoga, Ayurveda, Dharma, mathematics, architecture, arts, sciences, traditional attire, and present-day global impact, to name a few, will hopefully inspire curiosity towards a deeper study of these topics.


‘Darshana’ will be hosted at the Hussey-Mayfield Library for 3 weeks with an inaugural ceremony on Monday, May 9.


We invite communities to come and explore this poster exhibition supported by audio tours.

Location: Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Library. 250 N 5th St, Zionsville, IN 46077

Changes to the 1:1 Computer Program at the Middle Schools - Fall of 2022

During the November 8 board meeting, ZCS school board members approved an updated 1:1 technology plan. Beginning in the fall next year (2022-2023 school year), Zionsville Middle School (ZMS) and Zionsville West Middle School (ZWMS) will be using a staggered approach to transition into a 1:1 rental program that will eliminate the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). *These changes will only affect the current 4th grade class (class of 2030), students who are incoming 5th graders next year at ZMS and ZWMS.*


How it works.

Current 4th grade students (Class of 2030) will be required to rent a Lenovo 11e from ZCS for the start of their 5th grade year in 2022. Students in grades 6-8 will maintain their BYOD status for the 2022 school year so as not to interfere with already purchased devices. All current middle school students who started with BYOD will have the option to maintain BYOD status throughout their middle school years. The chart below shows the staggered approach over the next four years as we transition out of BYOD and into this new rental program.


For more details about this change, including financing, please visit the following

link: https://www.zcs.k12.in.us/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=458767&type=d&pREC_ID=2267749.


If you have questions, reach out to Dan Layton at dlayton@zcs.k12.in.us.


Thank You
