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!

Superintendent Weekly Update

I hope that this final weekly update finds you in good health and enjoying some relaxation this weekend. I simply cannot believe that the school year has less than one week left. I believe that it will now warm up and finally feel like summer.  I want to thank every single one of you for all of your hard work and dedication to our students all of this year.   The caring and generous giving of yourselves and your talents to our children is noticed and very much appreciated.  I hope that you have a relaxing summer, and if you travel, do so safely.  Hope you have a great last week.

Summer Reading Important-   I hope that high quality education continues over the summer.  Help us drive home the importance of learning when school is not in session.  Please encourage all your students to read at least fifteen minutes each day.  Please encourage your students to connect with the local library.  Encouragement can be connected to the progress that we have made as evidenced by our Momentum Award from ODE.

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.
