PTA Fall Updates

Posted on Updated on

Welcome Back Heritage Potluck 2014The Heritage Welcome Back Potluck last Friday night was a great success. The food was delicious!! A BIG thanks to all the parents who brought such wonderful food to share. Thanks to Alexandra Ballard for organizing this year’s event and to all the great volunteers who helped with set up and tear down.

To cut down on email clutter, the PTA and SGA meeting minutes and PTA agendas will be posted on Oxford’s website rather than sending them out through the eTree.

Oxford’s Harvest and Book Fair will be Sunday, October 19th. Save the date for community, food, games, prizes, books and fun! Talk with your room parent about your class booth and what you can do to help.

It’s been a great start to fundraising in the 2014-15 school year. Oxford’s One More Month Campaign has already brought in $5,000 in the first two weeks with participation from 25% of our Kindergarten families. Bravo! The One More Month campaign, along with all PTA donations, helps fund essential instructional programs. There are envelopes and forms outside Room 4 and Room 7. Please contribute what you can. Again, thank you to all of the families who have donated.
