Bogan E-News - September 22, 2017


Mark your calendar!  Join us for an evening of fun at the Bogan Carnival Saturday Sept. 30th from 5-8pm.  This is PTG’s biggest fundraiser.  We hope you can come and support the students at Bogan!


After School Art


Curbside Pickup:

    Please be courteous at pick-up at the end of the day.  Often busses and cars are arriving at the same time.  Please allow plenty of room for the busses to pass on the right hand side.  Patience is important as we move 415 students safely.



    School districts have always been required to monitor student attendance.  Recently the State of Ohio passed HB 410 which implemented required steps that school districts must follow for all students who do not attend school on a regular basis.  In addition, school attendance is now recorded in hours and not days.  Every minute counts and each day that a student is absent is a little more than 6 hours.    

    Excellent school attendance, 95% or above for each child is our goal. This means a student misses less than 9 days of school in a year - 1 day per month.  Excellent attendance is a great predictor of success in school. We appreciate the support that parents give to see that their child is prepared and attending school on a daily basis.

    As part of the requirements for HB 410, families of students that accumulate an excessive number of absence hours will be notified by mail from their individual school buildings.  Notices will be sent for all absences totaling the following number of hours:  38, 56, 65, 72.  In addition, notices will be be sent and a meeting scheduled for students who reach the following numbers of unexcused absences: 30 consecutive, 42 in a month, 72 in a year.

     If you have any question, please contact the school office.


Families of Children with Exceptionalities

Hello! On behalf of our 70+ member group, Oxford Families of Children with Exceptionalities, we would like to invite and welcome you to help us grow and improve! Our little group started with 5 like-minded parents and has grown immensely! Our goal is to advocate, support, encourage, and share our journey’s as families of children with special needs.  We stay connected via our FB group and have wonderful, collaborative meetings with many local entities. We are currently in discussions with McCullough-Hyde/Tri-Health in attempts to bring more local therapists to Oxford. We have spoken to the City Manager about adding education for local law enforcement and first responders, and we are working with the schools to help ensure our kiddos receive all the services they deserve.  We are willing to help anyone in need of advocates to send a broader message to our town. You are NOT alone! Join Us!!! Please find us on FB or email Erin at


Destination Imagination

    Destination Imagination is an innovative creative problem-solving program for participants from kindergarten through high school. Teams of 5 to 7 participants are challenged to solve one of five unique Team Challenges and an Instant Challenge with no adult assistance.  Each of the five Challenges offers participants an opportunity to explore art, literature, drama, engineering, architecture, and improvisation. Interest forms have been sent home in today's Friday Folders!

    Our regional tournament will be held in March at Miami University. Teams forming will require a parent or other adult that is willing to volunteer their time to be a team manager.  Free Manager/Coach training sessions are available in the fall.

     It is time to begin forming and registering teams for this year. Please contact me in the near future if you are interested in helping to coach/manage a Destination Imagination team this year. Without managers, we cannot have teams. We will be hosting an information meeting about Destination Imagination on Wednesday, September 27th at 6:30 p.m. in the PDC at the Nelson Morrow Building located at 909 S. Main Street (directly behind SDS pizza). Parents and students are welcome to attend. We will explain the program, how teams are formed, and how to become a team manager. Sign ups will also be available for children interested in participating.

    For more information about this program, go to and explore, or contact:

We had a lot of students participate today, but we would always love to have more.  This is a great opportunity for students to read at home and turn in their completed lists on Friday to receive a prize or book.
