Welcome to the new Melcher-Dallas web site. We have been working hard for the past few months to redesign the web site, and we will be making additions over the course of the next several weeks and months. The site will continue to evolve and keep you up to date on important school activities and information. While the site won't be a daily newspaper by any means, it is certainly our goal to keep the content fresh and exciting in an effort to entice you to return often.
We are excited to tell you that the new web site is adaptable for viewing on all mobile devices and that you have a choice on your viewing preference.
The next time you view our website on a tablet or smartphone, our web site will automatically detect your mobile device, display the mobile view and will remember it each time you return. If you change your mind, look for the Full Site/Mobile link on the footer of the web site to toggle back and forth.
In addition to view choices, the mobile view offers additional features. You can learn about them and some interesting facts about mobile access by clicking here.
ALSO, be sure to visit the calendar component of the web site. Sign up for weekly or monthly reminders for the events and activities you are interested in. Click here for more details, including instructions for clipping events.
So, take a look now, and then keep checking in with us from time to time; hopefully you'll notice the changes, the new features, etc. Thanks for visiting and come back again soon.
Check out the Activities Calendar on this site. This easy-to-use tool:
Using the calendar is easy!
Go to “my Clipped Events” at any time to change your preferences. Click on the “update” button each time you make a change.
Using the search function:
To find a specific event, type the keyword (basketball, for example) in the Keyword Search and you will only see those events. The Advanced Search allows you to choose from a list of specific organizations, categories, dates and locations.
Printing the calendar
Select the day, week, or month you want to print and then click on Print Month View. Select File and then Print, or click on the printer icon on the toolbar.
If you click on Month at a Glance, you will see a traditional monthly calendar. To print, simply select File and then Print, or click on the printer icon on the toolbar.
Printing Different Calendar Views
You can create different calendar views by defining your criteria. Click on Month at a Glance. Choose the organization and category you want to view and click on GO. You now have a new calendar view and can print it using the same steps outlined above.
That’s it. You’re now ready to use the calendar – and you’ll never have to worry about missing another practice, parent teacher conference or band concert!
