Spirit at Arrowood

Arrowood is showing their support for National Red Nose Day! The PTO purchased red noses for all the staff members to wear today. Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to helping children and having fun. Proceeds benefit children and young people in the US and some of the poorest communities in the world.


Adapted Physical Education Field Day

On Friday, May 13, XCS held its first annual adapted physical education field day for students with disabilities. Students with unique disabilities from K-12 were brought together for this fun event. Festivities took place in the field between WMS and Arrowood. Students were able to compete in events against peers with similar abilities allowing for an exciting day of fun and competition. Students completed 8 stations of activities consisting of lawn bowling, bubbles, face paint, bean bag toss, egg carry, bouncy house, balloon popping, and the softball throw. Several students raced against one another in a 50 meter or 20 meter race, while parents were there to cheer them on. Thanks to Ms. Comer's class for helping set up although they were unable to attend. Thanks to all of our related service professionals, special education paraprofessionals, and special education teachers for providing snacks, helping to run stations, assisting students as they transition from station to station, and bringing with them a spirit of friendly competition. Thanks to our parent volunteers and visitors for helping us build a community of support for our students. This truly was an outstanding event that we plan to continue for years to come!


District Receives Momentum Award From State

The Ohio's State Board of Education has granted XCS one of its first Momentum Awards.  This award recognizes districts that have received A's on every value-added measure included on Ohio's school and district report cards.  Xenia is one of only 53 districts in the state to receive the award.  The report card for the 2014-15 school year showed that XCS ensured its students received a year's worth of academic growth in reading and mathematics.  Congrats to the community, parents, students, and staff who helped make this happen.


Altrusa International Club Receives Grant

The Altrusa International Club in Xenia received a $1,500 grant for a free book project.  The group plans to host a booth at First Friday (downtown) each month through September and give a free book to any child (grades K-5) who comes to the booth and completes a word-related worksheet appropriate to his/her grade.  This is a great opportunity for our students...thanks Altrusa!
