Zion Lutheran School has been awarded a 2.66 out of 3.0 and will be recognized as an Accredited National Lutheran School in January 2021. 

Our school was recognized with excellence in school relationships and teaching and learning.  This is a strenuous process that teachers and the Christian Day School has been working on since November 2018. We are proud of our accomplishment.

Infection rates are climbing all around the area, but we are still here!  We will continue face-to-face learning as long as possibly allowed by the State of Michigan. 

IF we return to phase 3, (I dread even reminding everyone) school will continue online two week days after any closure.  The teachers will spend two days in intense planning and restructuring to move to online learning. 

You as parents also have the two days to check out Chromebooks from school and complete a usage agreement for the Chromebooks.  You will be notified by phone of any changes made to Zion Lutheran School's face to face learning.

Reading/Math Volunteers Needed

Are you interested in working with struggling students?  Our school is partnering with LSEM (Lutheran Special Education Ministries) this year.  I am the new LSEM teacher and I am excited to be working with your students.  This program, however, only allows a limited amount of hours for instruction. 

To maximize the effectiveness of learning, I am looking for volunteers to work with students on days that I am not here.  I would be happy to train you - and provide all the materials.  This would allow more time for extra help for our students.

If this is something you may be interested in, please feel free to contact me.  (It can be as little as only 30 minutes every other week!)  I look forward to talking with you!  My email is: awitchger@luthsped.org
