Another Update

The Google Calendar tool has broken for this blog.  I cannot attach it to this blog until the author of the gadget fixes it.  Until then, please search for the WECHS PTSA Google Calendar by:

  •  going to www.calendar.google.com.
  • On the left side of the page, you'll see a drop-down tab that says, "Other Calendars."  When you click on that tab, a search window will open directly beneath it.
  • Just type in WECHS PTSA in that search box and the Google Calendar will show.  I've made it public, so everyone will know what is upcoming.
I'll also try to keep you updated here.
