The Zavala Circle of Friends* is collecting new or gently used stuffed animals (for rewards for 1st and 2nd graders who achieve reading goals) and small inexpensive toys (of the Happy Meal variety) for prizes at the school’s Fall Fest on Oct. 25. Collection boxes are located in the Explorers Classroom on the 3rd floor.
What is Zavala Circle of Friends – University UMC plays an important support role to Zavala Elementary School. In the mid-90s, UUMC and Zavala Elementary formed a partnership that has nurtured and supported improvements in the students’ performance and their attitudes about school and success. The group has provided support for Zavala teachers, students, and parents in a variety of ways. Zavala Circle of Friends offers varied opportunities to volunteer including working with students directly, assisting teachers, improving the school, or assisting in the library, office, computer lab, and during special events such as the Reading Rally Day.
