Happy Halloween from the characters at Oxford! Check out our ghosts, goblins, funny characters, and the cast from Scooby-Doo and The Game Thrones. 😆//p>
This year's Harvest fest was a blast. Lind and Davis Halls battled it out in a pumpkin carving contest, greased pumpkin relay race, pie eating contest, pumpkin launching from the trebuchet that was built by the physics students, and an egg toss contest. Congrats to Nick S. and Connor W. for the victory. It was a fun day for all!
This weekend, we hosted 24 families on campus for Parents' Weekend. Friday's reception was great! On Saturday, families enjoyed parent/teacher conferences, a special presentation about the upcoming international trips, Chef Dave's delicious luncheon, and cheered on the Oxford Charge in the home soccer game.
Thanks to all who joined us!
This weekend, in Oxford tradition, our boys returned to the Holy Advent Church in Clinton, CT for their community service work in the local community garden cleaning up after the last harvest. We are glad to lend a helping hand to this organization which supplies fresh veggies to local food pantries. So proud of the OA boys for choosing to spend their Saturday morning giving back to charity.
For the 2019-20 Academic Year opening week event, the students participated in our annual all-school summer reading activities surrounding the theme of space. Each department prepared activities focused on different aspects of space and exploration. All enjoyed the day.
