On Friday September 16, Carly Sopko, RD, in-store dietitian from ShopRite of Washington visited every lunch at Oxford Central School. She taught the students the importance of including fruits and veggies in their lunches every day. Each student signed a pledge stating they would try to eat at least one fruit or vegetable with their lunch everyday. Carly collected 342 pledges from students and staff and submitted them to Produce for Kids. Produce for Kids is running a campaign where every healthy lunchbox pledge that is collected, they will donate $1 to Feeding America. If you'd like to sign the pledge as well, click on this link to support a wonderful cause:http://poweryourlunchbox.com/

We hope everyone has had a safe and happy summer. We are underway and look forward to an exciting and energetic school year. Students have received all necessary instruction for safety drills and the day to day routines for successful classes.
Students will be participating in fitness assessments in grades 4-8 physical education classes. This is the first of four assessments they will have during the school year. This will help students track their progress towards fitness goals.

Our 7th Grade classes had a very successful trip studying the unique habitats surrounding the shallow bays of New Jersey. The students were provided with a tremendous amount of information regarding ecology, resources, human impact, career choices, service to our country and contrasting environments. Many thanks to the staff who helped make this such a successful trip.
