End of Semester/Final Exam Organizer, Video, and Finals Info Page

Students will be discussing this end of semester organizer in their classes to assist with preparing for the final weeks of the term and exams. Students are encouraged to use Notability to fill out the organizer. Teachers will be sharing important dates for quizzes, tests, projects as well as important exam information that can be recorded on the organizer. In addition, students can reference extended tutoring, library, and test makeup hours.

Additionally, please see this 1-Page Finals Info Page that contains a summary of all important times and dates. While the organizer can be used for personal planning, this info sheet can be a quick reference guide about finals.
