February 27, Swim Meet


February 27th was an exciting day! Hank Siefert swam in the preliminary round to determine the top 16 (the top 8 are guaranteed a medal). He tied for 8th in the 200 free, so a swim off was required between Hank and St. Xavier's senior, Grant Carr. There was plenty of cheering from local teams as Hank sealed a podium place with a personal best of 1:40.52.

Hank also placed 13th in 500 free prelims.

State Assessment Information For XHS Students & Parents

Online State Assessments based on Common Core State Standards begins Tuesday, February 17.  

Online assessments for all 9th grade students next week will be the English Language Arts Performance Based Assesments - Units 1, 2, and 3.  Normal school hours and operation apply during the testing times for all students.  There are no scheduled late arrivals or early release.  

These are rigorous, high stakes assessments that will challenge our entire spectrum of students regardless of their academic level.  I anticipate students having the ability to stay focused throughout each assessment, over the course of the 13 assessment days, being the biggest obstabcle.  XHS teachers have worked hard over the past couple of years shifting to Common Core Standards where applicable and implementing strategies for higher level, more imbedded learning in the classroom.  Parents can support their child's success on these assessments by discussing with your teenager the expectations you have about their effort and by getting them to sleep well and eat good breakfast and lunch.

Together, we will be successful on this initial year of new assessments!

A letter was sent home to the parents of 9th grade students last week.  If you did not see the letter, click here.
