News of the Week - February 3rd

Good evening Champion families.  This is Mr. Bridges and Mrs. Merlette with some important reminders and a look at the week ahead.  Last week was National School Choice Week.  During National School Choice Week, our Academic Student Body (ASB) hosted special activities, students learned a special dance, and we had themed dress days at school that our Champions enjoyed!

 

Last week Oxford Preparatory Academy sent home a parent survey that would help us gain a better understanding of your insights and opinions about our school. We value your willingness to be part of our process to better understand and articulate our vision of OPA. Please click on one of the links below to access the survey, which should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Thank you again for your input and support.
