XCS Foundation Announces 1st Round of Grants

The Xenia Community Schools Foundation (XCSF) recently awarded $9,404.00 in grants to the Xenia Community Schools.

The Xenia Community Schools Foundation awards represent grants to teachers and staff of the Xenia Community Schools. Any Xenia Community Schools’ staff or community member can apply to the Foundation to fund special projects in classrooms. Projects are geared towards enriching student learning. Some applications represent district-wide initiatives. All the grants for Xenia Community School students and teachers are beyond what regular school funding can provide.

This group of awards includes funds for purchases of library books, software, Chemistry Club supplies, and STEM-related course materials. The Foundation is also honoring a grant request titled: “Enhancing Access to Arts Programing”. The Foundation is funding the purchase of five new pianos. These will be housed at Shawnee, Cox, McKinley, and Tecumseh Elementary Schools and Xenia High School. The purchase of these pianos will “enable Xenia Schools to promote a school environment rich in culture and to promote an appreciation of music and the arts for our students.”, per XCS Board President, Chery Marcus, who submitted the application on behalf of the District.

DP&L is pleased to offer Xenia Community School employees, family and friends a discount of .2 cents per kilowatt hour from the current standard offers.  This discount is available until August 12, 2014 so if you are interested sign up soon.  You can only sign up online for the program by going to dplenergy.com/xenia.

For every home that signs up, the district will receive $20.  Another $10 will be paid annually if you continue to participate in the program.  If you are already with DP&L Energy, you can still sign up for the Affinity program and the district will receive $10 for your participation.
