Mead's grade-specific planners are stylish and age-appropriate planners for students of any age. There is an elementary school planner, a middle school planner, and a high school planner. Each is sold separately and retails for $16.99.

The Five Star Seven-Pocket Horizontal Expanding File lets students lighten their load by pulling out just what they need. Registering for classes? Bring only the registration file. Upon returning home, the file fits right back into its expanding case. Including seven removable pockets to color code, the file also features reinforced gussets to prevent sides from tearing and a secure elastic closure. Tuck the flap inside to view contents easier and grab a pen from one of the storage notches. It retails for $9.99.

With its clearview cover, the Five Star Customizable Notebook lets kids showcase class schedules, notes, and photos. The notebook is available in six color options. An inside cover pocket offers additional storage to this college-ruled spiral-bound notebook. It retails for $8.99.
