Shawnee celebrates Constitution Day

The 4th graders at Shawnee celebrated Constitution Day on Friday,  September 16th.  Students read and studied the history of the Constitution including the history of its various locations, its Founding Fathers, and also practiced reading the Preamble.  Students ended the day with a patriotic treat of red, white and blue popsicles.  In addition, students were given the challenge to practice reciting the Preamble from memory.  One student from Mrs. Sanders' class, Kaylee Chubner, completed the challenge and recited it for the Shawnee Buccaneer Broadcast.  Way to go Kaylee!

High School celebrates Constitution Day

Friday, September 16 was Constitution Day and the High School celebrated by starting the day with announcements explaining Constitution Day.  Jon Miller, dressed as Thomas Payne, did a hilarious rap of "Bill of Rights...rights...baby: and the "Constitution Shuffle" which he made up.  He had students bring in America themed desserts and treats as well that day - like cookies with flags on them.


Levy Facts

Xenia Community Schools will be on the ballot Nov. 8 for a 3.9 mill levy. This will cost taxpayers less than $12 per month per $100K appraised property value. This levy will fund the construction of a new middle/high school building to be located at the northwest corner of the St.Rt. 42 and US 35 interchange.  The Ohio School Facilities Commission has approved to fund over $28 million of the project if XCS can fund the local share.

Superintendent Weekly Update

Last week's release of the State Report Card has caused concern in school districts across the State of Ohio and right here in Xenia as well.  This year's scores throughout Ohio are lower than in prior years.  These results were not unexpected since students are being judged against new, higher state standards.  Just like each of you, I support accountability.  We need to know how students are progressing and where improvement is needed.  However, this year is the third consecutive year with different tests and varying standards.  We believe that we have an excellent curricular plan in place for our students.  We also need to remember, just as a Board Member in another district recently said, "The report card is just one component.  Many other factors including jobs, college and military placement, scholarships awarded, the arts, and community service must be part of the overall picture of student success".  I am proud of each of you and the hard work you are putting in every single day for our kids.  You are doing incredible things with our students in the classroom.  Our students are receiving a quality education and they are being successful.  Why else would our 2016 graduates have been offered over $4.5 million in scholarships last spring with 75% of them currently enrolled in college?  Keep up the great work.
