Using the HS Building Calendar

What's Happening?


Teachers and advisors should be adding events to the HS Building Calendar. Field trips, conferences, special events, club trips and activities...etc. This will enable Vicki to get the necessary information in the "Events" section of the website. Not everything placed in the calendar will go onto the website.


Thanks for your help.
