ZCES Parents Club

The Parents Club is a valuable resource for improving our school and providing the tools our teachers need to keep our children stimulated and engaged at a level that will allow them to be successful in whichever future they chose. ZCES Parents Club has operated as a tax-exempt non-profit since 2014. Tax ID: 46-4361941.

Attend meetings, join a fundraising or activity committee, or simply serve as Member-At-Large. Your input as a parent is needed to make decisions that are consistent with our community’s values. Your questions create  opportunities for better communication, and your suggestions are always valuable. All are welcome at meetings. Want to help out? You’re already a member of our Parent Club if your kids go to ZCES!
