Oxford Participates in IRIS Run for Refugees

Oxford had 20 community members (students, faculty, families, parents of alumni) show up for the IRIS Run for Refugees Sunday morning at 10 a.m. in New Haven. IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services) is a federally recognized refugee resettlement agency.

Some students ran the race while another volunteered in the kitchen helping make IRIS's record-breaking race day a true success. Check the race results to find out how the students stacked up to the faculty. Great cause and a great time!-- Zack Hayden

Chinese New Year Celebration

Happy Chinese New Year! We're celebrating with Chef Dave's Asian cuisine, Mrs. Gilman's paper dragons and cooking lessons from Mr. McKibbens. McKibbens spent the last decade teaching history in China. He has since joined the OA community and yesterday, designated food stations in the dining hall featuring DIY dumplings and hot pot meals. Half spicy/ half mild. It was a big hit with sliced beef, lotus root, sweet potatoes, tofu skin, shrimp, white cabbage and fish balls. Good winter food!

Thanks to Mrs. Neale and the foreign language department for coordinating this celebration!

Acts of Kindness

Term II concluded with our Kindness Projects. These are an opportunity for each advisor group to do good beyond the Oxford community. Some of those projects included distributing collected canned goods, offering collected towels and blankets to the local animal shelter, providing books for the town library, and much more. We were also so proud to raise hundreds of dollars for a shopping spree to sponsor another local family from the Westbrook Youth and Family Services this year.

Great work OA for your part in making others holiday season brighter!
