How can I have all users' calendars show School Week across the top

We are running Exchange 2007 on Server 2008 with all current SPs and patches. Outlook clients are a mix of 2003 and 2007. I have basic Exchange Administrator skills, no programing skill.
We are an online school. I've been asked to setup Exchange/Outlook so that all users default calendars have the School Week across the top of the calendar. The only thing I've been able to come up with is creating a group, emailing meetings with the Title = that school week. This requires that users accept the meeting, and we will have to do this again every time we start a new term.
Is there a way to modify the default Calendar so that even when I set up a new user, they would have the desired information appear when the launch Outlook? Is there a default Calendar template or some such that I could modify? Or a way to "Push Out" these meeting requests to all users without requiring them to respond?

Hi adamant40,

The features you need are available in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Here you can setup a calendar with permission level for multiple users etc. You will need to do a bit of reading for sure. It is free, so just download, install and check it out.

Here is how to remove it -

"If you think that you may be infected with this threat, and are unsure how to check your system, you may download the Stinger tool (http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/) to scan your system and remove the virus if present.  

Note: Infected systems should install the Microsoft update to be protected from the exploit used by this worm. See:

Hi Manav08,
I am not sure I am following you. Share Point services will allow me to change Exchange's default calendar? So this would be installed on the Exchange server? Could I get a little more information on how this would work? Thank you.
