District Announcements
Thank You To All

Good Morning,

On behalf of myself and my family, please accept my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for such a wonderful welcoming event at Oxford High School.

A great many of the Oxford Community contributed to a truly inspiring program that showcased so many of our outstanding students. Musical performances, speeches, poetry and essay readings, student-created welcoming gifts, our NJROTC and more made the event especially powerful and those student efforts are the talk of our buildings this morning. Teachers and their principals are bursting with pride about current and former students.

Thank you also to our many distinguished guests in attendance. From Senator Moore, to members of the Oxford Board of Selectmen, our School Committee members and their families, Lt. Saad of the OXPD, OEA President Amy Belhumeur, and the many teachers and support staff, administrators, parents and families who were able to join us, the turnout showed what Oxford Community Spirit and Pirate Pride are all about.  

A very special thanks to School Committee Vice-Chair Brenda Ennis for all of her hard work in coordinating the event and also to Tyler McCarthy, OHS Student Council President who did an outstanding job in his role as Master of Ceremonies.

The energy, the positivity and, more than anything, the amazing and inspiring student presentations last night only reaffirmed what I have noted since joining the district four short months ago. Whatever this district, this town, our leaders, teachers and students put their hearts and minds to, whatever they and we set out to accomplish, “We So Can Do This”.


Proud to be a Pirate.

Sincerely,
Mark Garceau, Ed. D.

FOOD DRIVE

We are currently running a Food Drive at Clara Barton.  During the school year we have on-going fundraisers to support different organizations within and around our community.  We believe it's important to instill a sense of civic pride in our students through this work.  We are asking for your help and support for this worthy cause.  Please send in or drop off non-perishable items only.  We have a table set up in the main lobby.  All proceeds will benefit the Oxford Food Shelf.

Thank you in advance!

It seems the days of summer are behind us and we are settling into the fall season.  At Clara Barton, the bus issues are behind us, and we are settling into the business of educating your children.  The buses are all rolling out of Barton by 3:10 PM and the children are getting home in a timely fashion.  Once again, thank you all for your patience and understanding during the transition.  If you are dropping off your child during the AM arrival, we ask that you use the side entrance up to 8:50 a.m..  No cars should be in the main entrance area during this busy time for the buses.  If you are picking up your child at dismissal, please park your car in the side lot and enter the gym through the back door near the playground area.  School begins promptly at 8:35 each and every day.  Attendance is a priority for us so please do everything you can to make sure your child is here and on time daily.  Also, please remember a note is required if there is a change in the dismissal process for your child.

In keeping with our District's Wellness Policy, students at Clara Barton are not allowed to share snacks with other students in school.  As for special parties, events, or celebrations in the classroom, no food is allowed to be brought in to the classroom.  These special events may be celebrated in other ways that don't include food.  Please contact your classroom teacher for more information regarding how these events will be celebrated.

Our next PTO meeting will take place Wednesday, October 8th at 6:30 PM.  Please consider joining and/or participating in the PTO as a member or by attending our monthly meetings.  The PTO provides many wonderful opportunities for our students and staff throughout the year.  Parental support and involvement at the Clara Barton School is critical to the success of our students and the school.  We are all in this together as partners and we need your help!  Please get involved.  If you are interested in volunteering in your child's classroom, please contact his/her teacher.  

Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions, concerns, or if you just want to chat about the Patriots.  GO PATS!!!!!  

Sincerely,


Stephen A. Baroni
Principal

Alternate Transportation Request
Based on the Oxford School Committee transportation policies, the Oxford Public Schools will provide transportation for Elementary School students to either your home address or one alternative address on a consistent daily long-term basis. In order to better prepare for the opening of school, we ask that click here to complete the alternate location transportation form located under Parent Links - Transportation, but only if your child needs transportation to an address other than their home address. You do not need to do anything if your child will be bussed to and from your home address.


All forms must be received by August 9, 2014 to guarantee that they will be in effect for the start of schools on September 2, 2014
