Thank You To All
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.
