We are now sending out the school newsletters every other week. Our hope is to save paper and not have information repeated too often. If there is timely information during the off-week, I will send out a message via the Oxford email list and/or do a robo-call. School events are also listed on the Oxford Facebook page and the school website, oxfordelementary.org. Be sure to check out the website, it’s really amazing. Hillary Brooks, an Oxford parent, has been doing an outstanding job putting up-to-date information and links to different resources on the school website.
Speaking of communication, if you need to talk to your child’s teacher, please send them an email, a note, or leave a message in the office. Sometimes you can catch the teacher on the playground after school. The conversations on the playground or in the hallways before school keep students from entering the classrooms in a timely fashion. We want to support everyone getting started learning as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
There is no school on Monday, October 10th for students. The staff will be participating in district-wide professional development and we will not be at school. Be sure to mark your calendar so no one shows up at school that day!
If your child is sick, please keep him/her home. We have children in the office on a daily basis complaining about not feeling well. Be on the look out for lice, ringworm, pink eye, and respiratory illnesses. We have had a little bit of everything happening lately!
And mark your calendars, it’s Picture Day on Thursday, October 9th. Ordering information went home last week. If you need a new packet, stop by the office; Deanna has extras—but do NOT hand in your order packet until Picture Day. Make-Up Picture Day is on Thursday, November 13th. We are going with LifeTouch this year for school pictures.
Also, I’ll be holding the first Coffee with the Principal on Friday, October 17th at 8:00 am in the cafeteria. That’s a time where anyone can come, have a cup of coffee, and ask questions and hear more about life at Oxford Elementary!
