A Message From Our Principal

“It’s Still About Jesus!”


Dear Zion Parents and Friends:


Welcome to Zion for the 2017-2018 school year. We are excited to begin! Mrs. Nicole Nestor has joined the staff as the 4th/5th grade teacher, K-5 classes have moved into the spacious rooms in the Zion Fellowship Center, and the computer lab has been revamped and is ready for use.


The preschool has had their playground repainted, new outdoor play equipment purchased, and the sandbox filled. There is also a brand new room dedicated just to the after- school program.


Curriculum enrichment in grades K-5 will continue with Mrs. LaDorna Bunt, physical education teacher; Mrs. Carolyn Vice, art teacher; and Mrs. Kathy Bender, speech/intervention teacher. We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Kara Pingel will now be teaching weekly music classes.


Our school year will feature the theme “It’s Still About Jesus!” Students will be reminded that Jesus calls us by name – that we are important to Him – but that Jesus Himself also has many names. In chapel each Wednesday, students will learn about those names.


If you are interested in a strong Christian education combined with quality instruction and learning, please consider Zion as your school of choice. Class size is small with combination grades that provide opportunities to create a personalized instructional program for your child.


We have found that once families enroll their children at Zion they stay throughout the years. They appreciate the caring and friendly atmosphere and the ability to be in close contact with their child’s teacher.

Our school office is open Monday through Friday.


If you are interested in a tour, call us at (760) 723.3500 or e-mail zionschool@zlcs.org.


May God bless you,

Karen Robertson


Lunch Program

Our “Pizza Fridays” will continue in September. A small lunch (one piece of pizza) will be $4.00; a large (two pieces) will be $4.50. Both sizes include veggies or fruit, chips, and juice or water. Online ordering via the red  [Order School Lunch] button on this page will be available starting the last week of August.



Zion students in grades K-5 wear school uniforms. This year, we have discontinued ordering through True Grits in order to make uniforms more cost-effective for our families. Please review our uniform guidelines for updated information and ordering links.
