The Oxford anti-bullying subcommittee updated the Oxford School Committee this past Monday night about its upcoming three-day event surrounding “No Name Calling Day,” in a meeting held in the community room at the High School
“No Name Calling Day” will take place on January 25-27 and all Oxford schools will be participating. The subcommittee is still putting the schedule together but one of the main features will be a play presented by the High School Varsity players at the Oxford Middle School.
School Committee chairperson Brenda Ennis extended the committee’s thanks to the anti-bullying subcommittee for the exceptional work they have done. She said, “The committee is working very hard and making a huge difference,”
The Oxford High School student council has organized its first Polar Plunge event. On Saturday, March 3, they will head out to Revere Beach for a swim to raise money for the Oxford High School Pirates United Special Olympics Program.
The Oxford Historical Commission gave a presentation to the committee on its plans to celebrate the 100th year anniversary of Clara Barton’s passing. There are plans in place for a ceremony to be held on the front lawn of the Oxford Middle School for “the angel of the battle field.” More details will be announced once they are finalized.
The Committee also approved a field trip to New York City for the high school marching band and chorus. They will be performing at the historic Riverside Church in a date to be announced in May.
The Committee also recognized and had a moment of silence for the late Claire Sullivan, who worked as a school secretary for 27 years.
