School Activities

Zion Lutheran School's Entertainment Night is a very special evening held in May. After a delicious dinner is served to all, the students entertain their families with songs, skits, and a play or musical that they have learned and rehearsed as a class coached by their teachers. Thus, exposure to performing on a stage is part of Zion's curriculum in the late spring.  In addition, students in grades 5-8 have the option of participating in Forensics, in which they are coached to perform monalogues or skits at a yearly forensics festival.

Lutheran Girl Pioneers (LGP)

Girls in grades 1-8 may participate in Lutheran Girl Pioneers. Zion's Caravan 292 is a part of Zion congregation for the purpose stated in the national LGP mission: WORSHIP, SERVICE, FELLOWSHIP, EVANGELISM, RECREATION, & EDUCATION.  All girls in grades 1-8, who are members of Zion or a WELS congregation, attend Sunday School, or attend Zion Lutheran Elementary School, are welcome to join Zion LGP.

Throughout the months of October through May, we meet at different times depending on the activity.  We do service activities throughout the year, such as Easter and Christmas caroling to our shut-in members, preparing a Lenten supper for the congregation, and helping to prepare the church for the Easter breakfast. The girls learn skills for their future life as Christian young women.  Other fun activities that we have done include visiting To The Pointe Dance Academy in Hartland, roller skating, Christmas craft making, archery, and making a clay project at Lake Country Fine Arts.

We are members of the Rock River District of LGP and participate in District activities, which include the Pine-car Derby, Fall Fun day, and District Camp at Pineridge Campground & Retreat Center in Waldo, WI.  

Parent Teacher Society (PTS)
Zion's Parent Teacher Society (PTS) was founded in 1978.  This group meets four times a year (September, November, February, and April) to foster a healthy and active partnership between home, church, and school.

Informational topics relevant to Christian parenting are regularly scheduled to assist parents with the important task of training their children to be responsible citizens of the United States and faithful disciples of Jesus.  This group plans a number of events each year to encourage fellowship among the families of Zion Lutheran School.  It also assists the faculty and Board of Education by helping to plan and implement school outreach events.  Zion's PTS organizes many of the volunteers who serve our school in so many ways.  This organization has also supported Zion's ministry to children by funding a wide variety of improvement projects around school.

The Parent Teacher Society also serves a Pancake Breakfast before school on a Friday every other month.

Music is taught in all grades at our school.  In addition, students have several optional opportunities to learn more about music by participating in Junior Choir, playing special Christmas service music, and taking piano and band lessons.  Piano and band lessons are paid for by the parents; piano lessons are given by Ms. Shirleen Maertz, and band lessons are given by instructors from Wisconsin Lutheran High School.  For more information about our music curriculum, please click here.

Academic Competitions
Throughout the school year, our students participate in Math and Spelling competitions with other WELS schools in southeastern Wisconsin and, in the case of math, throughout the country.

Spirit Team
The girls in grades 5-8 have the opportunity to join Zion's Spirit Team, which assists the Zion Lutheran athletic programs by leading our fans in our School Song and other music to generate enthusiasm, excitement, and support for our teams. We choreograph routines using Color Guard Flags and techniques.

Yearbook Club
Students in grades 7 and 8, with the help of an adult adviser, create the school yearbook. The students gain experience in planning, photography, design, and editing.
