    On Thursday, April 11 the Mt. Zion HS Baseball Team will be playing at Busch Stadium after the St. Louis Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers game.  Students interested in attending this field trip can purchase tickets from players or Mr. Mose in the HS office.

    The bracket for March Madness has been released, and Mount Zion’s African American Experience is holding a competition to see who can make the best bracket! The top several winners will get to choose between gift cards donated by local shops and restaurants. To enter, download the ESPN Tournament Challenge app, go to Mr. Hansen’s classroom, pay the $2 entry fee that will go toward paying for our project, and give him your name to mark that you have paid.  Then he will give you the name of our competition and the password to enter it. Please do not share the password with your friends; only people that have been marked as having paid will be allowed to win any prizes! You must turn your money in and submit your bracket before the 1st March Madness game on Thursday morning. Thanks in advance for your support, and good luck!
