I recently received a free copy of the 2010-11 Schoolhouse Middle School Planner to examine, use and review.  This is the best planner I've seen yet, and I have compared quite a few.  We'll be incorporating the calendars, goals, assignment and due date, Bible memory and reading log forms to get on track this year.  I really like that I can print these as they are or type in the information I want on the forms (e.g. items coming up right into the calendar form) before printing.  This is going to be a great help planning and documenting our year.  With a number of outside activities for 4-H and church we'll now know what's happening from day-to-day and month-to-month.   My daughter thought the various informational lists would be handy while working on her own doing school, home and extracurricular activities.  There is also a 7 page Parent Pack included with the Planner which contains helpful introductory material.  This product is a real treasure that will get a lot of use this year in our home and school.  

I received this product free from TOS to use and provide an honest review.  No further payment was received.  The opinions provided are my own after examining the product.
