The Friday Flyer
From Boone Meadow Elementary School
Current 4th grade students listen carefully to Mr. Jim Crismore, strings teacher at ZWest, as he demonstrates the cello and other stringed instruments available for students to play in 5th grade.
4th graders also have the option to play in band or sing in choir in 5th grade. Mr. Steck and Mrs. Leatherberry demonstrate various instruments prior to selecting an instrument to play.
Throughout the week, 1st and 2nd grade students shared an "informance" with parents about what they are learning in music.
Kindergarten students in Mrs. Tuttila's class chose to learn more about space. The students then created a "space museum" to share their learning with guests.
Pillars of Music
Students show what they know through song, dance, movement, and playing instruments at this week's music informances. Students also have visual art projects on display for guests.
While waiting to teach his BME guitar students, Jake Dugan broke out his guitar and played some music for those waiting in the entry area prior to dismissal. Check out Eagle Rec opportunities by clicking here.
Pillars of Music
Thank you to Hilary Heffernan for coordinating this effort.
Third grade students enjoy a study trip to Clowes Hall @ Butler for a performance of Frindle based on the beloved chapter book by John Clements.
Mr. Noel and a few of his 3rd grade students get settled in before the cast of Frindle takes the stage at Clowes Hall on Friday.
Student art was on display all week for families visiting for the music informance and art show. Our students hold great talents!

Volunteers and Visitor Background Checks
CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR VOLUNTEERS
We value partnerships with our families and welcome parents and guardians to serve as volunteers in our schools. Each ZCS building offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities.
- Field Trip Chaperones
- Out of Town/Overnight Chaperones
- 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. 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.
- Lunch Guests
- Classroom Guest Speakers
- Classroom Special Events (Grandparent Day/Famous Hoosiers/etc.)
- Parent/Teacher Conferences
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.
