The best way to spend Labor Day weekend!
What better way to spend labor day weekend than with friends and family at a uplifting musical show? After doing volunteer work at both the Zionsville Community Schools and the Boys and Girls Club, the 100 young people from Up with People, representing 20 different countries, will be performing a beneficiary show at the Zionsville Performing Arts Center. On Friday September 1st and Saturday September 2nd at 7pm, the cast will take you on a journey through their countries, through time and through humanity. Original UWP songs and modern songs will introduce timeless themes, and include messages of hope, movement, peace, and an overriding sense of motivation to go out and make a positive change in the world! The show will benefit the Kiwanis Club of Zionsville in their support of local youth organizations. Purchase your tickets at: http://www.zvilleperformingarts.org/ Tickets are $15 dollars for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Don’t miss it!
CoderDojo is Coming to Zionsville with a Special Program Launch
CoderDojo is a global organization devoted to preparing children ages 7 to 17 for many concepts in technology by putting them through FREE coding courses. These courses are taught by volunteers who are technology industry veterans. For more information see the main homepage at coderdojo.com.

Strong in Every Way

State law stipulates that the medical records of children on file at school show the required immunizations have been completed by the 20th day of the school year. That day is September 5, 2017. Information regarding immunizations requirements for 2017-2018 can be found here.
Parents of children whose immunizations are not up-to-date should contact their health care provider or the Boone County Health Department to schedule an appointment for the necessary immunizations. Some pharmacies also carry the necessary vaccines.
If parents object to immunizations, a written objection must be on file in the school office by September 5, 2017. This must be updated yearly. Children who do not have up to date vaccination records by that date will not be allowed to return to school until the proper immunization information is on file. Students who have appointments with their health care provider after Sept. 5th 2017, must present proof of the scheduled appointment in order to remain in school.

Necessary background check paperwork is available on the ZCS website at the Volunteers/BRAVO link and should be submitted at least 10 days prior to the intended volunteer date. Volunteers must also view the state mandated confidentiality/bullying video, provided on the Volunteer/BRAVO website. The volunteer will pay the fee* for the full background check which will expire after 5 years. The link to apply for the full background check can be accessed on the Volunteers/BRAVO link on the ZCS main webpage. For more information, contact the Volunteer/BRAVO Coordinator.
CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR VISITORS
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.

We ask that all visitors schedule an appointment to meet with teachers, counselors, administrators and all other staff members so that we may best serve everyone. Visitors other than parents/guardians must be prearranged and organized through the main office.
*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.
