Zion History
Would you be willing to put together a few poster boards with pictures and history of Zion Lutheran School? Do you have any old uniforms we could display? Would you be willing to talk about: your favorite teacher; how going to Zion impacted your life; what is was like when they built the addition in 1977; if you attended school in the one-room schoolhouse; if you were one of the students in the current brick school that was built in 1920? If you are willing to share any of this information, Mrs. Thomas would love to talk to you — contact her ASAP at (952) 657-2339.
