All-In-One Calendar Needed on Website

    It would be nice if the PTA website posted a calendar with ALL school activities (open House, Back to School, P/T conferences), PTA activities, grade-specific events (Field Trips, Wax museum, congressional hearing...) and due dates for registrations (choir, instrument, bingo, market day, GT CEUs and seminars, etc.)
    Many new families, and forgetful people (like me) would really benefit from a single calendar containing ALL this information in one place.
    I find it challenging to look between the schools website, HCPSS website, PTA website, and class information. My children are not always the most forthcoming with notices from school, so if I don't look it up, I often don't know about it.

    Jennifer - thank you for your suggestion. We discussed this topic last year when we launched the site.  Unfortunately, we were unable to locate a volunteer who would be responsible for making sure our calendar, which would have been all-inclusive was constantly up to date.  Our fear was that HCPSS would post a date/time for an event that we would then copy to our site - and if that date/time changed a week later, we would now be reporting on inaccurate information on our site.  Our ask instead was for folks to utilize the Community News, PTA News, and Community Resources areas of the site to provide this information to PTA members.  I'll make sure to bring this topic up again at the next meeting to see if we are able to locate a volunteer.

    Thanks.
