What’s Up? A Hello Friend Student Planner

I’ve recently discovered “What’s Up? A Hello Friend Student Planner.” Innovative educators will find this planner is a great tool for helping students to get organized. As described at their website it is a simple, inexpensive tool designed to help middle and high school students meet the academic and organizational challenges they face in school. It's an innovative daily student planner that helps students stay on top of their work, complete assignments, manage their projects and apply essential learning skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. WHAT'S UP? is a calendar, assignment notebook, project planner, skills development program, information resource, and home-school communication system rolled into one. It can be used by an individual student, a class, a grade, or an entire school.

The other great thing about the planner is that experienced educators worked to create the planner. Interested school districts can speak to them about providing school-based professional development that can be delivered around how to use the planner effectively with students for success.

The planners were produced by the Hello Friend/Ennis William Cosby Foundation which is dedicated to fulfilling the goals and dreams of Ennis Cosby. The Foundation equips teachers, parents and students with the practical information and educational tools needed to understand and address the needs of all learners before they experience the corrosive effects of frustration and failure. The Foundation was established in 1997 by Bill and Camille Cosby as a 501(c)(3) public charity.

There are two options of planners from which to choose which you can look at here. The planners run about $7.00 each but there are quantity discounts. To learn more about the foundation or to order a planner visit
