Making your own school folder
A one-sheet form to be attached inside or placed at the front contains
critical information. Yours will end up different from mine, but this will
give you a starting place. If you go to very many schools, you’re not
likely to remember procedures a couple of months later.
A photocopied form with blanks to fill in and yes/no boxes to check may work
Your pocket computer/phone, might be the best way to store this information these days. With photos of bell schedules, maps, and so on stored digitally, seating charts might be the only paper in your folder.
