The Mead Organize School Memory Keeper is something you may want if you are looking for a simple memory keeping organizer for your child. The organizer is a lovely shade of purple which mimics a rich eggplant. The cover front features a lighter shade of purple flower. There’s a gray elastic bungee type band in which purpose is to keep the organizer closed and the contents safely in place. The side of the organizer has metal plate section for you to slide a piece of paper in with the name of the child you are keeping records of. The front has a white rectangle in the upper middle area which on it reads “School Memories” followed by the text “preschool-12th grade” and “This belongs to:” leaving a space for a name.
The inner pages feature one two sided page for each grade from preschool to 12th. On the pages there’s a place for school name, teacher, nickname, age, height, weight, current events, friends, milestones, and signature. Each grade level page has a top opening pocket in which you can store art, photos, or other memorabilia that was special that year.
I found the organizer to be quite durable. It’s wire bound so the inner pages turn easily while flipping through. It generously sized at 10.25 x 11.5 inches but can fit on a standard shelf easily. Being impressed with the quality as well as simplicity, I’m highly considering another memory keeper for my son and using this one for my daughter that’s currently in Kindergarten. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a simple yet special memory keeper to keep throughout the span of preschool through 12th grade.
