Dear Zilker Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Zilker Elementary for what I anticipate will be an engaging and memorable 2017-2018 school year.  The faculty and staff at Zilker Elementary look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting the newest members of our school community.

At Zilker, we sincerely value the unique qualities and contributions each member of our school community has to offer. Building positive and enduring relationships with our families is one of the many ways we strive to create a nurturing and positive environment for our students.  Zilker Elementary sets itself apart as a community of unique individuals committed to the success and excellence of each child at our school.  Zilker Elementary is truly…a GREAT place for kids!

You are always welcome at Zilker Elementary.  We have an active PTA with many opportunities for you to get involved as a volunteer in our school.  Please consider joining our PTA and learning about the many ways our parents help support the work we do here at Zilker.

Thank you for all that you do to support our students and our school.  Our door is always open should you even need anything or have any questions.  

We hope you find this revised and updated handbook helpful.  You can download a copy of the handbook from the link below.  Please go to to get on the Zilker PTA e-mail list and to receive the weekly ZEN (Zilker Elementary News).  It is the best way to keep up with the latest developments and get the most current information, including additions to this handbook.

Here’s to a wonderful 2017–2018 school year!



Alicia Hill, Principal
