ZHS-The Consequences on Drugs by Dr. Fairest Hill

Motivational Speaker

In collaboration with Zapata Middle School, Communities In Schools, and together with District Attorney Isidro “Chilo” Alaniz, the students at middle school were given an informative presentation on the importance of being Drug Free.

ZNES was thrilled to have the Laredo Police Department give an amazing presentation on being drug free. Students were excited when McGruff was on hand to show them how to "take a bite out of crime." As always, LPD provided an extraordinary show full of excitement and valuable lessons.

IRS Certifies ZHS students as Tax Preparers

Zapata High School Students were trained by an IRS agent this past semester to become tax preparer volunteers through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. This is a new initiative that began this year with the enthusiastic support and guidance of ZHS Career Technical Education (CTE) teacher, Mrs. Celina Canales. The students and teacher attended an intensive training by the IRS division and took an exam to become certified tax preparers. They are inviting the public to take advantage of the new free service offered on Mondays and Wednesdays beginning Jan. 27, 2020 from 4:30-6:30 pm. Location will be at Zapata High School-Room 163.
