A Guide to our School Calendars

  • Updated

At PALCS we have several dedicated calendars for each of our divisions. These calendars are public and powered by Google Calendar. This page explains what these calendars are for and how to use them.






WHAT ARE THE CALENDARS?
The school and division calendars are:
  • School-Wide - displays school-wide dates such as marking period start/end dates, holidays, and teacher in-service dates.
  • Elementary - displays items for our Elementary school families such as Got Science, Birthday with the Principal and testing dates.
  • Middle School - displays items for our Middle School families such as Middle School Connect, Assemblies, and Parent Advisory Meetings.
  • High School - displays items for our High School families such as class trips, dances and extension requests.
  • CPFA - displays items specific for our Center for Performing and Fine Arts families such as performances, auditions, and Pillars Parent Group meetings.
  • USP - displays items specific for our University Scholars Program families such as Mock Trial events, workshops and social events.
  • At a Glance Calendar - a list of major events formatted to fit on one page.
WHERE ARE THE CALENDARS?
They are all available from the "Calendar" PALCSchool navigation icon.

The At a Glance Calendar is located in our Lobby and Resources page.

HOW DO I VIEW AND WORK WITH THE CALENDARS?
Clicking on the Calendar icon from PALCSchool will take you directly to our Calendars. By default, we show All Calendars. A drop-down is available so families can show or hide as they wish.

In the example above only the School-Wide Calendar, Events Calendar and Middle School Calendar will be displayed. All other calendars will not be displayed.

We have also chosen to show the "Agenda" view as the default. This can be easily changed by clicking the Week or Month tab.

The image above shows the view options. There also is a print button for easy printing.

CAN I SUBSCRIBE TO THESE CALENDARS?
Yes! One of the main reasons we use Google Calendar is so our families (and staff) can easily subscribe to these calendars with their favorite calendar app.

WAYS TO SUBSCRIBE
Google Calendar users need to simply click the Add to Google Calendar button located at the bottom right of the calendar. (Close up shown below).

Clicking this button will make your browser open up Google Calendar in a new tab and a pop-up will appear with all the calendars. From this pop-up (shown below) you can select to subscribe to all or some.


For Non-Google Calendar users we provide the .ics link to all of our School Calendars on our Calendar page. (.ics is an Internet calendar format that is standard in most Calendar programs).
