Loveland, Ohio –  Earlier this month, the Amazing Charity Race had given City Council an ultimatum and February 28 deadline to reduce the fees they would have to pay to hold their 2017 event in the City, or they would have no other choice but to move their event outside of Loveland. City Council had been embroiled in heated debate over the past two months when they increased fees for public events that many charitable organizations said were exorbitant. On February 14, City Council voted to reduce the fees.

On Friday, race organizers announced they will stay in Loveland and have opened up slots for more participants. The 2017 race is scheduled for Saturday, June 17. It is always held on Fathers Day weekend.

The Amazing Charity Race has managed to raise nearly $850,000 dollars over eleven years. Last year the Race donated $64,000 to charities and local organizations. The biggest checks of $5,000 each went to CancerFree KIDS and Ovarian Cancer Alliance. Karen Carns Foundation and InRETURN received $1,000 each. More than 40 other charitable organizations split the remainder.

Due to increased demand and and because we are keeping the finish line in Loveland, Ohio this year we have opened up 50 more spots for the 2017 Amazing Charity Race!
Please forward this on to anyone who may be looking for a Sold Out spot.  We appreciate your support, and can’t wait to see you Saturday, June 17th, 2017!

What should I do?

Check your password managers and change all your passwords, especially those on these affected sites. Rotate API keys & secrets, and confirm you have 2-FA set up for important accounts. This might sound like fear-mongering, but the scope of this leak is truly massive, and due to the fact that all Cloudflare proxy customers were vulnerable to having data leaked, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Loveland, Ohio – On Valentine’s Day at Tiger Court, the student section sported pink and red to show their support for the Loveland men’s basketball team as they hosted Walnut Hills on Senior Night. Unfortunately, the ECC-leading Eagles weren’t cooperating – and defeated the Tigers 71-49.

In pre-game festivities, Loveland honored six seniors on this year’s edition of the Tigers. Playing their last game on Tiger Court were Jacob Campbell, Drew Kluender,  Mitch Robinson, Mitch Suder, Owen Wilhoite, and Alex Wolf. The seniors helped keep the Tigers in the game early, as Loveland led 8-7 after the first quarter behind a zone defense that slowed down the Eagles. But, Walnut Hills heated up in the second quarter, hitting four treys from beyond the arc. Closing on an 8-0 run, the Eagles took a 28-19 lead into halftime. 

Walnut Hills opened the third quarter with six straight points, including two breakaway dunks, and after outscoring the Tigers 24-10 in the quarter, the game was essentially over. 

Loveland’s final basket of the game was a baseline jumper by sophomore Gabe Rubeo, as he scored his first 2 varsity points. Mitch Suder led the way for the Tigers, scoring 14 points.  See full game stats.

In the State tournament draw the Tigers will be taking on Edgewood on Saturday, February 25 at 8 PM at Fairfield. See Bracket below.

Superintendent Chad Hilliker discusses how Destination Loveland will drive the future of the student experience


Loveland, Ohio – In January 2016 Superintendent Chad Hilliker first revealed “Destination Loveland” in a community presentation. Fast forward one year to January 19, 2017 – Superintendent Hilliker once again took the Loveland High School Auditorium stage to deliver the annual State of Schools presentation and the message centered on how “Destination Loveland” continues to drive district goals, and will, “Help shape the future student experience.”

“Preparing Students for Tomorrow, Today – that is the mission that guides every decision we make, and those decisions developed the vision we have – being a destination school district exemplified through our dedicated approach to the complete student experience – that is the heart of Destination Loveland,” said Hilliker. “It is both a partnership and a journey we are walking together – students, teachers, staff, administrators, the Board of Education, our parents and community members – to continue to create new avenues for our students to achieve excellence.”

Hilliker invited Board of Education President Dave Blumberg to reflect on strides made during the 2016-17 school year which included a one-to-one technology program in grades 7-12, the addition of three all-day kindergarten classes that will begin fall 2017, and the construction of the Loveland Primary School all-inclusive playground and new tennis court facilities at LHS. Administrators, teachers and students also shared the stage to talk about how they are seeing achievement on the district’s big three goals for the school year: Growth, Innovation and Care.

“We are proud of the great strides this district has made in one year, but there is much more to accomplish as we continue to focus on what the Loveland student experience should look like in the future,” said Hilliker.

Hilliker announced the development of the Destination Loveland Task Force, a group of staff and community members that will begin work in February on future plans to include defining what the student experience should be, facilities needs and financial pathways to achieve the district’s goals. A plan is expected to be presented to the Board of Education in August.

“This is about updating our curriculum and classes to make all we do cutting edge, and significantly enhancing the academic experience for our students,” said Hilliker.

The community can expect regular updates on the progress of the Destination Loveland Task Force on the district’s website (

Wildflower House — where women & girls bloom!


By Chad Hilliker, Loveland City School District superintendent

It’s not the same district.

If there was one message that stood out, that was it. It was the annual State of Schools event, and the Loveland High School Auditorium was packed with members of the Tiger Family – and I will admit, many came for the award-winning Loveland Show Choirs who performed at the end. But to get to the end, they did have the chance to hear the message I delivered: Destination Loveland is not our past, it is our future.

A future that is taking shape right now.

During this 2016-17 school year, our teachers, staff, administrators and Board have put laser focus on three key areas: academic growth, classroom innovation and Tiger care. This is how we are making strides right now in Preparing Our Students for Tomorrow, Today. It’s through equipping students with new science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) offerings in middle and high school. It’s with the establishment of seven additional AP courses at Loveland High School (LHS). It’s by the implementation of a 1:1 device plan for LHS, and by making available 1,800 plus Chromebooks and Android tablets for our students district-wide. And, it’s by further strengthening opportunities for our youngest Tigers by offering a tuition-based, full-day kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year.

We’re not finished.

Now, we are ready to bring in a group of Loveland parents, community members and business leaders to join our educators in developing our future goals. Called the Destination Loveland Task Force, this group will work from February through the summer to develop what the Loveland student experience should look like, the future needs of our facilities and a financial plan to achieve our goals. By August of this year, the task force will present a recommendation on all three items to our Board of Education.

It’s not the same district – it’s better and better, year after year.

We are in a time of change. Our staff embraces this; our administration embraces this, and our Board embraces this. We want you to embrace this. The work is not small, but the payoff is worth it – Preparing Our Students for Tomorrow, Today. As the educational leader of this outstanding district, and as a member of this community for more than 25 years, I thank you for your continued support.

Dedicated to the future of our students,
Chad Hilliker

The zoo comes to class!

Loveland, Ohio – Students gathered into the Loveland Primary School (LPS) Gymnasium to say hello to some special guests – two baby cheetahs from the Cincinnati Zoo. The special assembly was funded by a family member of an LPS student as an educational gift for the classes to enjoy.

“It was exciting – it really was,” said LPS Principal Kevin Fancher. “We are so fortunate to operate in a community that truly supports expanding the educational opportunities for all of our students, and we sincerely thank the donor who made this visit happen!”
