How to create a custom schedule in Canvas calendar for all students?

Our Intermediate School (Grades 5-6) will be rolling out Canvas for the 2018-2019 school year. They have a 4 day rotation schedule for Art, Music, STEM, and PE. In the past, they have purchased assignment notebooks for all students that have this rotation schedule printed on the notebook. They would like to use a Canvas calendar to replace this functionality.


1. How can we share a Canvas calendar with all students in the Intermediate school? Do we need to enroll them all in a fake class that has this calendar?

2. Is there anyway to create this sort of recurring event in Canvas calendar? Right, now the only way I can see to create this is to manually create an event for all 180 days of the school year. 

3. Any other suggestions or ways you would tackle this problem that I haven't thought of?
