Welcome to Oxbow Community School

On Tuesday, May 5, voters in Huron Valley Schools will be asked to consider a 2.5 mill facilities proposal. Learn more about this initiative by visiting www.hvs.org and please attend our district wide open house on Sunday, March 29 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Look for the orange squares!

Oxbow Elementary School - A Message about the Facilities Millage from Huron Valley Schools on Vimeo.

We believe all children have the ability to learn and encourage children to work to their fullest potential. Oxbow continues to strive towards excellence in both academics and social development.

Every year hundreds of Huron Valley students are in need of new winter coats that their families cannot afford to purchase.

Zip Up for Special Needs is a national program to raise awareness for students with special needs. Oxbow not only joined the effort, but took it to another level. Students were part of a pay it forward with silver campaign and raised $400 to donate to Zip Up. Students then made their own video that was shown at a school board meeting as well as at community circle. Representatives from Zip it Up were so impressed that they contacted Oxbow and will be sending a video thank you. At the end of community circle the students from Mrs. Hudecheck and Ms. Evenson's classes passed out zipper pulls to every student to remember to Zip it Up. Check out this amazing video!

School Calendar Change

The current school calendar has an early release day scheduled for April 29. As you know, May 5 has now been scheduled for a statewide election. Since many of our buildings are utilized as polling sites, it was determined that it would be in the best interests of our students, staff and families to change our professional development day from April 29 to May 5. Therefore, students should report for a full day on April 29. Students will not report on May 5.
