On Monday, the faculty and staff welcomed Kelly Webster and Janel Lynch of The Grove School to facilitate a morning of Professional Development. The pair discussed effective ways and strategies to support positive behaviors and manage difficulties with students in the classroom, on activities, and residentially. We are so grateful to once again team up with local professionals for tips and tools to better serve our community of learners.
Huge thanks to Kelly and Janel for your expertise!
Last week, Mr. Pachniuk, Mr. McGrath, and a group of Oxford students returned home with fantastic photos from this year's annual, 8-day international trip to Italy. The group toured the Colosseum in Rome, walked the Spanish Steps in Vatican, then visited the seaport and military base of Ostia Antica. Next, they found Donatello and Michelangelo's masterpieces in Florence, strolled through the medieval streets that surround the Piazza del Campo in Siena, and rode bicycles around the Citadel Walls of Lucca. In preparation for this excursion, all attendees took part in a Italian History seminar for a richer understanding of each city.

At the conclusion of our varsity soccer season, coaches Mr. Pachniuk and Mr. Maragliano honored all of the players for their hard work and great sportsmanship. The coaching staff spoke passionately about each player and their individual contribution to the fantastic 10-2-1 record, which led the Oxen to the conference semifinals.
Special recognition went to Noah R. (MVP), Max B. (Most Improved Player) and Liam M. (Unsung Hero Award), Ronald M., Bruce N., Noah R., and Livingston F. (Coastal Prep League) for their outstanding athletic performance.
We are proud of our athletes for making this an excellent season!
Mrs. Pelletier's Forensics students spent time collecting DNA samples through fingerprints. They later applied fuming techniques to collect the evidence for further analysis of the samples. Great to see the guys participating intensively in this project-based learning experiment.
Thank you Greame C. for putting together an incredible video.
Halloween kicked off Oxford's Annual Harvest Fest, the community had a blast in their finest Halloween costume apparel. Then, Lind v. Davis battled it out in a series of contests featuring a pumpkin carving competition, greased pumpkin relay race, pie eating contest, and an egg toss. All events led up to the launching of pumpkins in our new trebuchet constructed by Mr. Westbrook and the Oxford boys.
Everyone had tons of fun in Oxford tradition!
