Parents of English Learners! We need your help!
Zanker is in need of DELAC Site PARENT Representatives! DELAC stands for District English Language Advisory Committee.
In alignment with our District LCAP Goals (see below), our goal is to have at least TWO parent DELAC representatives. This year, we will continue to have:
• DELAC meetings focused on serving the needs of EL students using parent feedback
• Community presentations on topics of importance to MUSD English Learner families
• Light Dinner Bites
All are welcome! Our first DELAC meeting is Tuesday, October 4th, 6:00 pm. Please email Principal Lee if you are interested in representing Zanker and help inform our district on the needs of English Learners so that we can ensure that we are supporting our students!

This year we are participating in a hassle-free fundraiser called Shoparoo. Nationwide, 7,000+ schools are already fundraising through Shoparoo and we see it as great opportunity for us to make a difference this year.
All you need to do is take pictures of your grocery receipts with the Shoparoo app made for your smartphone. It doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy - every receipt submitted results in a donation to our school!
So, what are you waiting for? Simply download the free app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching ‘shoparoo’ and then select our school as your chosen cause. Since there is no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo, be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join in – every receipt counts!
