The school year calendar information provides parents with a list of important dates, such as PD Days and holidays. It also provides the first and last days of school, professional development days and holidays, exams and assessment dates, as well as any events added directly by your school.

The term calendar is taken from calendae, the term for the first day of the month in the Roman calendar, related to the verb calare "to call out", referring to the "calling" of the new moon when it was first seen.

This is done by giving names to periods of time, typically days, weeks, months and years. A date is the designation of a single, specific day within such a system. A calendar is also a physical record of such a system. A calendar can also mean a list of planned events, such as a court calendar or a partly or fully chronological list of documents, such as a calendar of wills.

Having a customized calendar that highlights events that are important along with areas to keep track of important events, activities, financial needs, gives a personalized touch that will continue using all year round.
