GiantYear® Magnetic Whiteboard School Activity Calendar

One of the biggest problems for school administrators is making the full range of school activity information available at all times to those who need it. Existing stand-alone scheduling programs for tracking athletic, academic and community activities don't talk to each other, have limited accessibility and make the job of communicating to staff, faculty, students and the community fragmented and difficult at best. As they prepare for the coming school year, administrators are turning to Magnatag's large magnetic whiteboard calendars to solve the problem.

One school principal says "Everyone in the office knows that our whiteboard calendar is the place to go to find everything and anything we need to know about the school. There isn't an activity you won't find on it. It's great for making certain we don't have any conflicts. Our administrative staff loves the way it visually answers hundreds of questions a day and shows exactly what we need to prepare for."

Christian Krapf, a spokesperson for Magnatag Visible Systems, says "Schools love our classic GiantYear® daily activity calendar because they can see the full school year at a glance and all the magnets and charting accsssories that come with it make it fast and easy to post, update and read. The magnetic cardholder and card inserts (easily posted with the kit's CD/ROM keying template) create 50+ color-combinations for visually locating activities instantly by type and grade levels. You just move the magnets to make changes and flash status changes with multi-colored magnet signals."

Its natural simplicity, flexibility, credibility and eye-catching visible impact makes it an unbeatable communicator in every school and has made it one of Magnatag's most popular products.
