Girls on the Run

Starting mid-March, Oxford Elementary will be hosting Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a program after school where girls get to learn new skills for emotional and physical health and make new friendships all while having fun. This program is for all girls who are willing to celebrate themselves and get active. The program will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school for girls in third, fourth, or fifth grade. Registration opened on February 3. There are only so many spots available and girls are chosen by order of registration. The paperwork will be passed out early this week. We hope to see a lot of interest!

Family Literacy

On Thursday, January 30, OES hosted a Family Literacy Night with a space theme. What an amazing night of stargazing, planet creating, non-fiction reading and planetarium visiting. Northern Stars Planetarium was on hand to share two shows. Rave reviews of both shows were shared in the hallway as students and parents exited the planetarium. Thank you to Mr. Josh Davis who brought his telescope and shared the night sky with families. What a treat for our students! Thank you to all the staff who helped to make this night possible, especially Mrs. Marston from Pre-K and Mrs. Desjardins our Literacy Coach. Thank you also to our families who were able to join us for the evening. It was so much fun having you in the building! We can’t wait for our next family night!
