The cover of the planner is customized with Foothill High School's logo. It's made by SDI Corporate Group. Everything from cover to cover is generic, for any school, but it's great information. The front, back, and inside covers are FHS-specific.
The top middle of the planner features Fitness, Science, Environment, and Achievement factoids, and in the top corner, there's geography lesson "Name That Spot" box.
The lower right corner had historical facts and a "Character Corner," which challenges students to think about Tolerance, Honesty, Respect, Courage, Citizenship, and other positive traits.
The TRUSD calendar is on the back cover. When's the next day off?
Need help? There's a reference section with information for just about all core subjects.

Student planners are new and better than ever

Students have just the tool they need to help stay organized and successful in school.

Foothill students have recently gotten student planners and they look pretty cool. The student planners have many new features this year. The planners also look a lot better than last year’s planner.

There are a couple of pages in the introduction just for how to use the planner, though I think it’s kind of self-explanatory on how to use a planner.

The planner has an area in the book just for the month. Instead of a weekly planner in the front, it starts out with the month views, with week views after that. The planner goes from July of 2014 to June of 2015, so it includes the school year plus a month. The month portion is there for us so we can write down anything we need to remember in a certain month, like a birthday.

After the months we get into the weekly views to write down all of our school homework and schedule for the week. It makes it a lot easier to remember the homework and projects due in the coming week.

In the back of the book there are many pages covering math equations, science formulas, English and grammar rules, character development and many helpers. The math equations go from algebra to calculus. This planner can be great to use for a test if it is open book and open notes.

Throughout the planner down in the right hand corners of most every page there is a little fact box called “Back in the Day” about a certain day of that week in history. So, for example, the week of April 13-19 of 2015, the fact is about April 15, 1912. The fact is, “The unsinkable luxury liner, Titanic, strikes an iceberg and sinks on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City, New York, killing more than 1,500 out of their 2,200 passengers on board.”

The planner also has so many other interesting qualities. Some include the back cover and the inside of the back cover. The back cover has the calendar for the school year with all the important dates that we need to know. On the inside back cover there is the school campus map. Some more stuff in the planner include things like skills for success, character development, punctuation for English, the periodic table of the elements, and mini geography lessons.

Finally, the inside front cover features Foothill High School’s A.C.E. indicators, which help promote Academically Proficient Individuals, Critical Thinkers, and Effective Communicators.

The planner is a great way to keep very important information that is crucial for succeeding in high school.
