4th Graders' Overnight Trip to Camp Tecumseh

Students in 4th grade went overnight to Camp Tecumseh as part of 4th grade's study of Indiana History this week. Camp Tecumseh’s Pioneer Heritage program is all about understanding the past, appreciating the present, and expanding the vision for the future.

What was it like to build a log cabin, grind your own cornmeal, set a trap line or build a bridge? The activities in pioneer heritage put the kids in the center of the action as they learned how to live life as a pioneer.

In addition to the historical experience, students built and expanded relationships with their classmates by living, working, and playing together. This builds the types of relationships that will last forever!

This is the 34th year that PVE 4th graders have attended!

School Visitor Check-Ins at ZCS

Big image

ZCS uses a visitor management system known as SafeVisitor. SafeVisitor is a 30-45 second check-in process that cross references against all national sex offender registries and prints a visitor badge. Please be prepared to scan a government issued ID(Driver License) when arriving to campus as a visitor or volunteer. The printed badge should be visible at all times while in the building.

This does not replace the required limited/full background checks for volunteers, field trip chaperones, and guest speakers. More information about background checks can be found HERE.
