   Dear Zion Central Middle School Pirates,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! We are looking forward to another year of successful collaboration with you and our staff. We have greatly missed the in-person learning environment, and are so proud to see all of our 6th-8th grade students this year.

Here at ZCMS, we continue to accomplish our district's goal of excellence without exception. As we continue into the year, we remain dedicated to providing our school community with timely and transparent communication.

We thank you for your continued trust and collaboration, and cannot wait for another great school year!
