How to Organize Your Back to School Calendar

Category: Planners

Going back to school may look a little different this year, but one thing hasn’t changed, and that is how much there is to do to get ready. You need to buy new clothes and school supplies, prepare for upcoming assignments, and study for exams.

You may be moving into your new dorm room and meeting your new roommate for the first time. No matter what your first day of school looks like, Gallery Leather has the tools to keep you organized for the year to come. Here are some tips on how to organize your back to school calendar. 

1. Take Notes

You may want to daydream in class while your teacher is lecturing, but you should be taking notes. Did you know that you remember things better if you physically write them down on paper? Studies have shown that you process information better while writing it down by hand, making you more likely to remember it later.

This includes essential information like assignment due dates and exam days. This way, you’ll have a reminder of upcoming tests while you study for them in your notes. If you would like to take advantage of this life hack, Gallery Leather offers a variety of journals and notebooks to help you.

For your dorm room, we have desk journals that are large enough to store all of your essential information. For your backpack, we offer travel journals and pocket notes that are portable enough to bring with you anywhere on or off-campus. Our travel journals even have straps to keep them securely closed and your information private. We offer both lined and unlined journals, which will be extremely helpful in your art classes or for doodling during lectures. 

We craft our Leather Journals using bookmaking techniques that have stood the test of time. The pages of our leather journals are Smythe sewn and glued. Then, they are reinforced with a cloth binding strip. Acid-free vellum endpapers and a ribbon bookmark complete our journals, which are bound by hand in bonded leather.

The paper we use is acid-free and selected for just the right “tooth,” weight, and texture for writing. Your teacher will be impressed with your note-taking in your new journal. You may even want to study so that you can admire your journal’s beauty and craftsmanship. 

2. Plan Ahead

Now that you are back in school, you have a lot of important dates to remember. Along with classes, you have exams, labs, extracurricular activities, and other school functions to attend. You need to be able to keep track of it all.

Today, most students and teachers use online calendar programs like those attached to their email accounts. These calendars can be used on both your computer and cell phone. They are useful tools, but what happens when you are away from your phone or computer?

Like if you forget your device in your locker or dorm room. As easy as these tools make it to remember important dates, they make it equally as easy to forget them. Here is where Gallery Leather can help.

We offer planners in a wide variety of formats and designs to meet your school’s demanding schedule. From our Weekly Desk Planners to our Leather Family Planners, with all the details you could hope for, we craft our planners using time tested bookmaking techniques and quality material. You can choose between weekly, daily, or monthly planners to best meet your scheduling needs.

Our dated planners are customized to each academic year, making them an annual addition to your school supply list. For example, the current academic planners are for July 2020 – December 2021. We even offer undated planners so you can start keeping track of your dates whenever it is most convenient for you. 

3. Keep it Together 

Maybe this school year is when you finally move out of your parents’ house and into your own dorm room. You have a lot of important information to remember now that you are on your own. Your mother wants you to call her just to talk, not to ask her for birthdays, phone numbers, and other things you need to know. You need a place to keep all of this information together. 

Did you know that your back to school calendar planner can be that place for you? Gallery Leather’s family planners include pages to mark down important information like birthdays, emergency contacts, calendar events, and general notes. Your mother will be impressed with you when you remember her birthday, show up to class on time, and make your own doctor’s appointment. You don’t even need to tell her that your planner is helping you become a more thoughtful, mature young adult, even though it is. 

4. Make It Your Own

A new school year means a chance to reinvent yourself. New clothes, a new haircut, and new school supplies can make or break your year. Along with keeping track of your upcoming events, your back to school calendar can also be a reflection of your style. That is why Gallery Leather offers so many options to make your school supplies your own. 

Made of bonded leather, the Gallery Leather’s journals and planners come in a rainbow of colors. You’re sure to find your school colors so you can let your school spirit shine from your first day to graduation day. We offer swatches to help you find the perfect color to match your back to school calendar or journal to your wardrobe. You can even have your journal or planner personalized with your name, initials, or class year. 

Going back to school can be an exciting but stressful time. Gallery Leather wants to make the transition as easy as possible by giving you the tips and tools you need to get your back to school calendar organized.
