It’s early this year, so we are jumping right into school events. Back-to-School Night is this Thursday, September 4th. This is an adult-only event. We are not planning on having childcare but if this is keeping you from being able to attend, please contact me.
Teachers will meet with parents/guardians in the classroom to review classroom rules and expectations, curriculum, and special projects and/or field trips. This is the time to make that connection to the teacher and to hear what is going on in the classroom.
The schedule for Back-to-School Night:
- 6:00–6:45 Grades K–2
- 6:45–7:15 All School Assembly in Cafeteria with Principal
- 7:15–8:00 Grades 3–5
Hope to see everyone there,
Beth Rhine, Principal
Please join us for Coffee and Treats on the upper playground from 8:00–9:00 am on the first three days of school. Come reconnect with your community. We are still in need of volunteers to bring items, so please go to Pencil to sign up to bring something on one of the three days. Pencil is also available for iPhones and Droid, called Pencil Networks, Inc. Great for mobile accessibility.
Sabrina, PTA President

From the Principal:
At last week’s Community Meeting, the upcoming School Raffle and Spring Dance were announced to the students and families in attendance. The Dance is on Friday, March 21st. Hope to see you all there. And please sell those tickets! There are a lot of great prizes available.
Another upcoming event is the first School Auction (off-site and adults only) on Friday, April 18th. We want everyone to know they are wanted and welcome to attend. Berkeley schools pull students from all over the city, which helps to create a unique and rich community. I am hoping our Auction will also represent our diverse school community. Please consider talking to a parent in your child’s classroom and encouraging him/her to attend the auction. Sometimes that personal invitation helps people to feel welcome.
Friday, April 18 will be our first ever adults-only Spring Celebration & Auction, our “Toast to Oxford.” Can you donate a bottle of wine to help stock the bar for the auction?
Every Wednesday morning several Oxford volunteers will be stationed at both the Oxford and Walnut Street drop-off locations collecting bottles for the celebration. Read the “Toast to Oxford” Committee’s original ask.
