The Oxford Parent Teacher Organization is a local charitable organization in Oxford, Connecticut and is dedicated to the enrichment and nurturing of a close relationship between the parents, teachers, and the students by advancing opportunities in the school, home, and the community of Oxford.
We have a focused goal of providing educational enhancements, including, but not limited to programs, which benefit the majority of the student body and are not normally provided by the Board of Education. Every month we typically approve and fund class trips, performance speakers to come to the school, and many other causes.
Please stop by one of our monthly meetings and donate a few hours during one of our events. Throwing donated clothes into a truck may just be the way our children get to the museum!

SHRED IT EVENT / CLOTHING DRIVE
The Oxford Parent Teacher Organization will hold a Shred It Day fundraiser at Oxford Center School from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 19.
A truck from Secure Eco Shred will be at the school and will shred all documents on site. Oxford PTO encourages people to protect themselves and their families against identity theft by attending the event. People can destroy unwanted junk mail, old family papers, documents and confidential home/office papers safely and easily at the event. It is also a good way for people to recycle, PTO members say. People who cannot attend the event can still participate. For more on how to do so, or for more information on the event, contact Lisa Suttile at email@example.com.
The Oxford PTO will conduct its semi-annual clothing drive in conjunction with Shred It Day on Saturday, April 19, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Oxford Center School, 462 Oxford Road (Route 67), Oxford.
Items being collected include gently used clothing (men, women, children), shoes, accessories (belts, pocketbooks, scarves, ties, hats), linens (bedding, curtains, tablecloths, towels), stuffed animals and toys (nothing breakable or too large).
All items should be placed in tightly sealed plastic garbage bags. Fragile items, as well as any books, large outdoor furniture, car seats or vcr tapes will not be accepted. Cleats that are donated need to be placed into a separate bag and marked accordingly.
