Kindergarten Round-Up & Kinder Kamp




If your child will be five years old on or before September 1, 2014, he/she is eligible to attend kindergarten for the 2014-15 school year!  Come join us in the school library at 9:00 on Tuesday morning, May 6, to find out about our program and to register your child.  This event is intended for adults, but you may bring your child if necessary.  If you will bring the originals (that you will keep) along with two copies of each of the following, the registration process will be much smoother and go much more quickly for you:

* Birth certificate

* Social security card

* Immunization record

* Photo ID (driver’s license or other government issued identification) for parent(s)/guardian(s)

* Proof of address (home contract or lease OR gas or electric bill–must have parent’s/guardian’s name on it)

We hope to see you on May 6!




ON TUESDAY, MAY 20, AT 8:30 A.M.

This event is for you AND your child!  Again, if your child will be five years on or before September 1, 2014, he/she is invited to join us in our school library for “Kinder Kamp” at Zilker Elementary School.  Parent(s)/guardian(s) must attend with our incoming kindergarteners.  This special time will include:

* Story time with our librarian and principal

* A tour of the campus

* Introduction of our kindergarten teachers

* Snacks provided by our PTA

* Play time on the playground

Plan to join us for a fun time if you can!

Zilker Teacher of the Year 2013 – 2014!

Dear Zilker Families,

Join me in congratulating Mr. Mat Garland, kindergarten teacher, as Zilker’s Teacher of the Year for the 2013 – 2014 school year!  This was Mr. Garland’s 4th consecutive year to be nominated for this honor by his peers, and he will now move forward to the district level as the representative for all of our very fine teachers at Zilker.  The AISD Teacher of the Year will be announced in May.

The other finalists at Zilker were Elda Garcia, music teacher, and Karen Murphy, 1st grade teacher.  We congratulate all three of these wonderful teachers for their accomplishments and for this recognition.

Way to go, teachers!
