The school year is now almost halfway over and teachers are all plotting their revenge for the past semester. It's time to take the semester exams, which most students refer to as "hell week." They are getting ready to crack down in the books to ace those important tests. Some sophomores may find exam time very nerve racking. Tasha Coffin. sophomore, is quite nervous about this hectic time of.year because she doesn't know what to expect. Coffin doesn't like the fact that the exams are usually based on what was learned throughout the semester. "Teachers shouldn't be so ha rd on students because things are forgotten from the beginning of the year." she states. She is keeping all of her papers from the begin- ning of the year so she can pull them out and study hard. De- pending on her teachers, she is really hoping that the tests aren't a big part of her grade. Coffin does think that she will do good if her nerves don't get in the way. Of course seniors are a lot marc experienced. Shelly Rcmien. senior, is getting ready for those tough exams. She isn't going toxvait until tile last minute. "I thought it would be easy and took it lightly, but things didn't go the way I planned," says Remien about her sophomore 3'ear. Her jun- ior year was a little better, but now that she is a senior, she knows what to expect and is starting to prepare. "This year should be preW easy," Remien said. Students aren't the only ones who have to heavily prepare for the exams. Teachers do to. Becky Compton, math teacher, agreed with the students on their opinions to exam time. She also believes that this time of year is very stressful. She has to look hard to find a test that will let her knm what the students know and also some- thing she can correct xvithin three days. She tries to prepare students by giving them quar- ter tests. Most of the time she even tests herself first before she hands it out to the students. Compton is the kind of teacher who is a lot more strict with the sophomores. They need a lot more guidance. Just because this is their first year here, she believes that they should be treated as if they were a junior or senior. Her advice is, "the time to prepare is not the night before."

He thinks that starting a dance club was a good idea because. "'It makes everyone get along to- gether and it's also great exer- cise." Although the club is still put together and events are planned, they still haven't found a place to dance other than room 206.
