Superintendent Weekly Update

I hope that this weekly bulletin finds each of you in good health and having enjoyed your weekend.  Last week, November 16-22, was American Education Week 2014.  Thanks for all you do for our kids. Here are a few quotes about teaching:

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.  Henry Brooks Adams Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth.  Helen Caldicott The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth.  Dan Rather There is no word in the English language that I revere more than teacher.  Pat Conroy There is an old saying that the course of civilization is a race between catastrophe and education.  In a democracy such as ours, we must make sure that education wins the race.  John F. Kennedy Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.  Japanese Proverb Whoever first coined the phrase "you're the wind beneath my wings" most assuredly was reflecting on the sublime influence of a very special teacher.  Frank Trujillo In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less.  Lee Iacocca

Baskets For Battle Campaign at Xenia High School
‘Tis the season for Student Council’s annual service project, Baskets for Battle! Baskets for Battle is a student run fundraiser, designed to aid battling cancer patients of all ages and genders around the Miami Valley. The “baskets” (typically tote bags) will be filled with items designed to comfort the patients because they are specific to the needs that arise during chemotherapy or radiation. Certain things can be of great assistance to the patients during this difficult time. XHS student council encourages you to join in the effort to support these struggling patients.  Donations will be accepted through December 1, 2014.
