Get back to school better with Arrange

Maria Eastman·

Arrange makes the planning, scheduling, and shopping for back-to-school easier and more organized.

Going back to school after the long summer is always a time of excitement. While your children may be overly excited or even a little bit worried about new teachers, new subjects, and meeting their friends, the days before starting school again are always busy and stressful for parents as well. Instead of rolling into the school year with a flimsy, disorganized, paper calendar stuck to your fridge, Arrange is also offering to digitize any school calendars to help keep you and your family organized.

Back To School Plans

You can ace back to school with the help of our plans. Simply join Arrange (for free!) and subscribe to our plans written to help parents plan for the shopping trips and admin work that come with the end of Summer. Once you subscribe to a plan, the plan’s tasks will automatically sync to your digital calendar. From them, you can customize the dates of the reminders/tasks to fit your child’s school schedule or your personal calendar. When the day and time comes to complete that task, you’ll see the reminder pop up on your computer or phone with the plan’s corresponding emoji.

It doesn’t get much easier than that! Here are some back-to-school plans to check out:

Digitize Your School Calendar with Arrange’s help

We know what traditional school calendars are like; A piece of paper or two with a long list of important dates. Hardly a useful calendar if you ask us.

Luckily, you can now automagically add your PDF school calendar to your Google calendar with our help! Whether it's the full academic year, a list of school events, or the PTA meeting schedule, we can create a custom school calendar for you that's useful, shareable, and of course, digital.

From back to school night to summer vacation, you'll have reminders for everything on the academic calendar. Plus, we'll add helpful reminders like Halloween costume prep and teacher appreciation reminders, so you can let yourself forget. And you can deem yourself the class hero when you send the shareable link to other parents, friends, and teachers.
