Welcome Zilker’s New Principal!

Zilker’s Campus Advisory Council is excited to announce that our new principal will be introduced to the campus on Tuesday, May 23rd!   There will be an assembly for all students and any parents who want to attend at 8:15am in the cafeteria. Representatives from AISD will be there to make a formal introduction. He/she will then attend Kinder Camp in the library. A second, less formal, introduction will take place that evening at 6pm in the cafeteria.  We hope that you will be able to attend one or both meetings to give our new leader a very warm, Zilker welcome!
