Start the New Semester out the Right Way! Update your Planner!

August 12, 2014 Susan Mulcaire

Log on to your school’s website. Check out the annual calendar. Note in your planner all of the dates and events that impact you like finals, breaks, bell schedule changes, rallies, team, sports or play tryouts, and holidays. After that, focus on your personal schedule. Note in your planner items that impact you over the next month, like sports practices, ortho appointments or birthdays. Write them in your planner! Have your planner, and a pen or pencil in hand the minute you walk into your classrooms and write down assignments and all other class schedule items that impact your time and management of your workload. Use abbreviations and separate entries with bullet points!
