Print the Online Calendar Guide

The full 2016-17 district calendar is now available online at www.wdmcs.org/calendar. You can find a link to the district calendar webpage at the top of any page on the district website.

On the district calendar webpage, two calendars will be available: the Calendar at a Glance and the Interactive Online Calendar. Continue reading to learn how to use the new interactive online district calendar.

Calendar at a Glance

Our at-a-glance calendar PDF is a printable academic calendar. It includes breaks, no school days, and other main districtwide dates. The Calendar at a Glance is located at the top of the district calendar webpage. Click the “THIS YEAR” button to view a PDF of the current academic calendar. The “NEXT YEAR” button leads to an academic calendar for the upcoming academic year, which is posted in late January each school year.

Interactive Online District Calendar

Complete with a new, user-friendly design, the interactive online district calendar is fully customizable through filtering. You can personalize your online calendar view by choosing the event categories and schools relevant to your needs.

Step One: Filter by Event Category
This is the main filter and helps you select which type of event you want to see. You should use this filter first.

  • Activities — debate, science bowl, etc.
  • Arts — band, jazz band, vocal music, and orchestra
  • Athletics — 7-12 athletics (basketball, football, soccer, etc.)
  • Community Education
  • Districtwide — all districtwide events (no school days, holidays, school board meetings, testing, etc.)
  • Schoolwide — all building-level events (school pictures, conferences, meet the teacher night)

Step Two: Filter by School
This is a secondary filter. Use this filter to break down your categorized events by school building.

  • All Schools — events at every district school building that are in your chosen category/categories
  • Elementary — events at every elementary school building
    • To view events occurring at your specific elementary school, check the box next to the school’s name:
      • Clive
      • Crestview
      • Crossroads
      • Fairmeadows
      • Hillside
      • Jordan Creek
      • Western Hills
      • Westridge
  • Junior High — events at both junior high school buildings
    • To view events occurring at your specific junior high school, check the box next to the school’s name:
      • Indian Hills
      • Stilwell
  • High School — events at every high school building
    • To view events occurring at your specific high school, check the box next to the school’s name:
      • Valley
      • Valley Southwoods
      • Walnut Creek

Day, Week, Month, Range
Another way to customize your calendar view is to select a range of event dates. Built-in ranges include “DAY,” “WEEK,” and “MONTH.” You can also create your own range by clicking on the “RANGE” button. Select a “START DATE” and “END DATE,” then click “APPLY.” Before you start a new event date search, click “CLEAR.”

NEW! Printable Customized Calendar

Once you have personalized your online calendar view to your interests, you can print a customized list of dates with our new on-demand print feature. Click the “PRINT” button near the top of the calendar to print an easy-to-read PDF. (Preprinted yearly calendars are no longer available due to budget reductions.)
