April/May Update


That is how many school days we have left. The year has flown by and the next four weeks will be but a blur. There is always so much to do at this time of the year in the short time left.

Please see below for the end-of-year-events. It is a long list and hope you are able to participate in all of them.

I also want to thank you in advance for helping with maintaining academics and behavior. Everyone starts getting a little excited about Summer Break and there are times when one is forgetful of still being in school.

Have a great rest of the school year!

2014–15 Yearbooks

All yearbook orders are due by Friday, April 24 for delivery this year. You may purchase one at zuni.picaboo.com or by sending in the order form that went home in backpack mail.

Explora Family Science Night

You are invited to special evening at Explora with other Zuni Families. The event is from 6:30–8:30PM. There will be pizza, carrots, lemonade, water and cooks to eat.

If you are riding the bus (as marked on your registration form), please arrive at school by 5:45 to sign-in. The bus will arrive at 6:00. Please be on time as the bus will not wait to leave at its designated time from Zuni.

Thank you to the teachers and parents who are volunteering in helping with this family night.

Kinder Pre-registration

Our 2015–16 pre-registration for new Kindergarten students is Wednesday, April 29, 2:30–6:00PM in the library. Please help us in spreading the word.

When coming to register, families will need to bring two documents showing current address, birth certificate and shot records. If you received a transfer approval letter, you will also need to bring the letter in lieu of the documents showing current address. Please plan on about 20–30 minutes to complete forms.

We look forward to seeing our new students and their families.

We Appreciate Our Cafeteria Staff, Teachers and School Nurse/Health Office

This is a week to appreciate several of the people who help make Zuni, and all schools, a great place and safe place to be.

Our Cafeteria Staff are recognized through School Nutrition Employees Week starting May 4. Let them know we appreciate how they make sure so many of our students have daily healthy meals.

Tuesday, May 5 is the time to show our appreciation for our teachers for the long hours and dedication they provide to our students' academic and emotional well-being.

And last, but certainly not least, School Nurses Day is Wednesday, May 6. Take a moment to stop by the Health Office to say thanks for all the band-aids, ice packs and caring they give when our students have boo-boos or feel ill.

Time for Reading Fundraiser

We all know how important it is for our children to learn to read for pleasure and for learning. Part of joy of reading is having a choice in what we are reading.

To support Time for Reading, we will have a small school-wide magazine sale fundraiser the week of May 4, ending on Friday, May 8. There will be a short informational assembly for students on Monday, May 4. Watch for the packets to come home that day.

Thank you for supporting Time for Reading, whether through the fundraiser or by reading everyday at home.

Book Fair

Ms. Telle will have a Book Fair in the library on Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 and 14. More details to follow.

Art & Dessert Night

We will have the annual Art & Dessert Night on Friday, May 15, 5:30–7:00PM, sponsored by the Zuni PTA.

To support the event, we are asking families to provide a snack donation to the PTA. The snacks do need to be in their original individually-wrapped packaging from the store. Unfortunately, we aren't able to accept homemade items anymore.

Come join us in celebration of the wonderful student artists we have at Zuni.

Hope to see you there.

Field Day

We would like to ask you to volunteer for Field Day. It is being held on Thursday, May 21. Whether you can come for an hour or for the day, your help would be much appreciated. Please let Coach Anderson know if you are able to volunteer (current background check is needed).

Do We Have Your Correct Contact Information?

We are using social media, our school website, "robo" calls/e-mails, and other electronic communication to keep you as informed as possible.

To ensure we reach you about events and other school related information, please let us know of any changes in your phone number, e-mail address or home address.

E-mail is also an important communication tool. If you haven't done so already, please come to the office to add your e-mail address to your student's registration card.


If you've not done so, please sign up for Remind reminders. This is a text-based reminder system. You will receive reminders and notices of school events, important notices, or weather related updates.
