Silent Auction Proceeds to Support Grants Program Information
The Xenia Community Schools Foundation will host a Silent Auction on April 23, 2022, as part of the annual Hall of Honor Dinner and Induction Ceremony event. The auction will be online for two weeks in advance and finalize during the Hall of Honor event held at Tecumseh Elementary School. Donation commitments should be made by April 8th. Proceeds from the auction will be used to fund classroom grants.
The Xenia Community Schools Foundation provides grants for classroom and teacher projects. Almost $25,000.00 was awarded for the 2021-2022 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.
This year’s group of awards includes funds for purchases of library books at the elementary and middle school and Chemistry Club supplies. High school chemistry students are trained to present and conduct experiments as part of an elementary school chemistry demonstration program. Additional projects include Muse Machine performances at Warner Middle School and a dissections course at Warner, along with a variety of classroom projects in the elementary buildings. A total of twenty-two applications were approved for funding.
