Calendar Instructions

Overview

Please note that the Taft Calendar is divided into several different sections. By using Google calendar, you can choose which topics you wish to display. For instance, you can choose to view only Arts, or turn off just Student Activities.

Visit the Google Calendar Overview page for more options, including how to subscribe: http://www.google.com/intl/en/googlecalendar/about.html
