· You are now subscribed to the "Twining Master Calendar," which is located under "Other calendars."

If you use a different device to view calendar events, if the device's calendar supports .ical, you can integrate our school calendar. If you navigate to the calendar portion of our website (for example, https://www.gfschools.org/Page/4799#calendar12281/20210901/month), please look for the three small icons just above the calendar. If you click on the icon that looks like a link/paperclip (it's the first icon, from left), it will take you to a new page, "iCal Feed." Depending on the calendar program you use, there are instructions for several programs on that page.
