I hope everyone is enjoying their summer thus far.
I’m writing to let you all know that I’ve officially begun my work as Superintendent of Schools here in Oxford. I've worked in public education for over 20 years, as an administrator and before that a teacher. I look forward to learning more about Oxford and meeting all of you.
In the meantime, Oxford Academy continues to be full of summer activities. Here at school we’re already busy with summer school, summer reading programs, extra-curricular activities, curriculum planning, cleaning the buildings, and much more.
The elementary school is abuzz with learning activities for well over one hundred of our children, and the middle and high schools each have programs currently underway that are meant to enhance student success rates in the coming school year.
Teachers, staff and administrators are all busy with professional development opportunities, and are earnestly engaged in collaborative efforts to make learning even more rewarding.
Throughout the remainder of the summer we will be working diligently to ready the schools for another successful academic year. Our goal as always is to continue to strive for excellence.
I look forward to working together with everyone on behalf of our students. If you see me in any of our buildings or at special events, feel free to introduce yourself. My door is always open.
Mr. John T. Hillis
Superintendent, Oxford Academy and Central Schools
