Xenia Community Schools Hall of Honor and Online Auction Supports Classroom Grants
The Xenia Community Schools Foundation will be recognizing the Class of 2021 Hall of Honor inductees on April 24th. The Class of 2020 inductees will also be recognized at this year’s Hall of Honor celebration, since last year’s event was a virtual celebration. Plaques for all inductees are installed in the entrance at Xenia High School. Inductees receive a framed copy of the plaque, a crystal commemorative award and several proclamations including ones from the mayor of City of Xenia, the Greene County Commissioners and state legislative bodies. Inductees serve as role models for current and future generations of Xenia students and the Xenia community.
The Xenia Community Schools Foundation’s online auction, as part of this event, will activate on April 9, 202, at 9:00 am and will close April 24th. Proceeds from the auction will be used to fund classroom grants. The auction can be accessed at: www.32auctions/xcsf2021.. Many of the auction items are donated by school staff, XCSF Board of Directors and local businesses.
The Xenia Community Schools Foundation provides grants for classroom and teacher projects. Almost $25,000.00 was awarded for the 2020-2021 school year. Funded projects are geared towards enriching student learning. Some applications represent district-wide initiatives. All the grants for Xenia Community Schools’ students and teachers are beyond what regular school funding can provide.
