HORNET HAPPENINGS The approach of midterm exams

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by LOGAN BECK Special to The Press in School

Now that the holiday decorations are being taken down until next year, school is back in session. To the dismay of students, midterm exams are also rapidly approaching.

The midterm exams will be Jan. 17 through 22. The school will be closed Jan. 21.

Midterms are a stressful time for everyone, students and teachers alike. It is important to balance priorities during the exam, to ensure quality results while maintaining sanity.

Q: What grade are you in?

A: I am a senior at Emmaus High School.

Q: What is your favorite subject? Why?

A: My favorite subject has to be humanities. It's a double course that includes history, philosophy, literature, music and art. I like it because it's different. There is no set curriculum, which gives the teachers more flexibility. Also, it's a pretty high-caliber group of kids, so we have a lot of interesting discussions.
