iCal Users

You can merge the MCES Google calendar with my iCal calendar! Directions can be found in this YouTube video:
If you find that iCal then wants to open two calendars, you'll need to go into Calendar --> Preferences, click on 'Google' and then click on 'Delegation'. Check the 'MCES Calendar' box, and voila! Everything on one calendar! And it gets updated automatically when change are made to the school calendar!
