Superintendent Weekly Update

I hope that this weekly update finds you in good health and enjoying this beautiful weekend. The state testing began two weeks ago and everything has been going very well.  I have heard that all of the students are putting forth their best effort on these important tests.  I hope that continues for the remainder of the testing time.  Best of luck to everyone.   Hope you have a great week.

Spaghetti Dinner- Last Tuesday the school district held its 2nd annual community wide Spaghetti Dinner.  It was fantastic.  We served 593 meals and the performing groups were awesome.  Thanks so much to everyone who was involved in putting this event together.  All of the items we served were donated to us by vendors.  Organizations who donated included Gordon Food Service, W.R. Hackett Produce, Aunt Millie's Bakery, Waibel, Alpha and Omega, and local members of our community.  Last year we held our first ever Community Spaghetti Dinner with about 400 meals served.  Student groups that performed this year included our Elementary and Character Choirs, our high school Chemistry Club, our 6th, 7th and 8th grade bands, 6th grade choir, and our high school jazz band.  They all did a terrific job.  Again, thanks to everyone for their help and support.

Focused Learning at Shawnee

Mrs. Baumgartner's third-grade class received five Hokki Stools to help students wiggle their way into learning. Mrs. Baumgartner filled out a grant on donorschoose.org asking donors to donate to a project that would help students stay focused during their daily learning. The project was fully funded and the class is now using these stools daily. 

 


Superhero Day at Shawnee

The third-grade classes at Shawnee had Superhero Day last week to get ready for AIR testing. They were Test-Taking Superheroes. The teachers were Captain Story Support, Captain Graphic Organizer, and Captain Mathinator. The students had a blast dressing up and we discussed test-taking strategies as well as had reading and math superhero center games to review before the AIR test. The students even made thinking caps during art class last week! 


Community Spaghetti Dinner

XCS once again thanks the community for its support by hosting the 2nd Annual spaghetti event on Tuesday, April 19 at Arrowood.  This year we served 593 meals in 2 hours.  This almost doubled the amount served last year and we had to close the kitchen shortly after 7 because we ran out of pasta.  It was a great event and we look forward to doing so again next year. All items were donated by vendors. There were also some amazing performances from our students. Warner Middle School bands, Tecumseh Character Choir, Elementary Choir, and the XHS Jazz Band performed. Bill Richey did a Science Demonstration and Cox students entertained with a Hip Hop routine and played the piano.
