March 7


Hello, Zebulon Elementary Families, 

This is Principal Newkirk with the update for the week of March 7, 2019 



Early Release

This Friday is the final early release day for the year. School gets out at 12:30 PM. Please have plans for the supervision of your children. It may be the last early release day ever in WCPSS. Next year the calendar does not have any early release days. These days have been replaced by three additional teacher workdays to provide teachers with sustained time to engage in professional learning. Here is a link to the calendar for the 2019-2020 school year.



Field Day t-shirt sales

The Zebulon Field Day Tee Shirt Sale is currently underway!  Order forms were sent home on Wednesday so please check backpacks.  This year tee shirt orders can be placed online at  or by filling out the paper form and sending it to school along with payment.  We have a fun field day and everyone always looks great out there on the day of our Field Day event wearing their tees! The deadline to order is Friday, March 22nd…… so don’t wait, order today! Thank you in advance for your support of our Physical Education program at ZES!.  



Kindergarten Registration

Thank you to everyone who has registered your rising kindergartner for next school year. Please encourage your friends, neighbors, and family with young children to register now for kindergarten and our preschool class. Class size legislation requires that classes in grades K-3 be even smaller for next year. I want to be prepared have teachers hired for all of our classes.



International Night

Our next Family Engagement event is International Night. Zebulon Elementary is blessed with a diverse student body with families that originate from all over the world. Each grade level will represent a different continent. Materials were sent home in Wednesday folders yesterday.
