My Calendars

My Calendar, a personal calendar application, is a tool to help parents and students stay on top of daily events and better manage their time. Using My Calendar, you can subscribe to and receive homework and school event information in the form of a calendar on your desktop computer. With My Calendar, you can:
  • Subscribe to calendars to keep up with homework assignments, grades, school events, and more.
  • View more than one calendar at a time from within a single unified window to quickly identify schedule conflicts and pockets of free time.
  • Keep your priorities straight with a built-in To Do list.
IMPORTANT: In order to use My Calendar, you must first have an iCal enabled calendar installed on your computer. Gmail and Apples iCal applications both work.
