VIRTUAL PUMPKIN CONTESTS
We’re trying to have fun at Zinser through the Pandemic! We know how exciting it is to carve and decorate a pumpkin. It is truly a great family project! We wanted to continue with our annual pumpkin decorating contest and have a fun, friendly, virtual Zinser competition. If you are carving or decorating a pumpkin this year, be sure to take a photo of your masterpiece and email it to tfollett@khps.org by October 26 so that it can be entered in the pumpkin carving contest. We will number them and vote October 28-30 and honor our winning pumpkins and families on the 30th. Let’s see how creative our families can be at Zinser!

PARENT COMPACTS
Parent Compacts are agreements between the school and home. They help us form an important partnership that is critical for each child. These need to be signed and returned right away by all parents since we are now a Title 1 school. Because conferences are virtual, we have sent a hard copy home prior to conferences so that we can answer any questions regarding the compact during the conference. Thank you for reading and signing, and returning to your child’s teacher!

ZINSER PARENT RESOURCE GUIDE
One of our social work interns, Andrea updated this awesome resource for families! There are over 50 pages of information to help your family!

PARKING LOT NOTES
Please consider utilizing our bus transportation option to avoid the busy parent pick-up lot. The buses have few students riding. We had a very high percentage of pick-ups today!

  • We turned most of the signs around so parents won’t want to stop at the sign and keep moving forward. Always look to pull up where and when possible to help with the flow. Tell your child to look for the correct car and be ready. If your child is late to the sign, you can circle around the lot and keep your car moving.
  • Thank you for those turning right only. We know it’s an inconvenience for some but we believe it will help speed up the line and be safer in the long run (we've had a couple accidents at that intersection).
  • Drop off starts at 8:30; If you are in the lot before 8:30, you may drop your child off a few minutes early to get the traffic flowing, but the child will be standing by the grade sign until the 8:30 bell. Starting Monday all 1st-5th grade students can enter at the bell in the designated door.
  • Please only use the right lane for drop off and pick-up, the inside lane is a pass by lane only. It is very dangerous to let students out in that lane.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
