Get Pencil for Communication
We are using a free tool called Pencil—via web, email, iOS/Android—to create the Oxford community directory, as well as for room parent and volunteer communications. There are groups for classrooms, grades, events and the whole school. You can reach anyone in the school via Pencil: just search for their name in the Roster for the Oxford Community group, click on their name, then click the Message button.
Pencil is a secure network, accessible only by email invitations from Oxford members. If you have not yet received an invitation, email your name and your child’s name, grade and teacher to .
