Saturday, April 16th- Family Fun Walk/Picnic, Zion’s Soccer Field

Meet us at 10:30 a.m. at Zion for a fun morning! Park in the front parking lot of the church/main school building and head on back to the soccer field. We will have a designated trail marked out on Zion’s campus for families to complete. After completing the trail, each family will be presented with a children’s book courtesy of Scholastic Books, which they will then sign and donate to Sparrow’s Nest, a local non-profit maternity home for young women that is run by Carissa Figgins, a Zion Preschool mom. After the walk is completed, all families will have the opportunity to join other families in a picnic on the soccer field. All families will need to bring a blanket and a picnic lunch for their own family. In case of rain, the Family Walk and Picnic will be canceled! No reservations are necessary.


Each day’s dress is based on a children’s book that the Early Childhood teachers will be sharing that day with the students.
