AP classes finish off stressful year with sweet note

After AP exams are taken, some teachers host a “party” in class. This consists of students in the class bringing in snacks, drinks, utensils, napkins, cups, etc.. Some teachers even like to play music to add to mood of happiness. After AP exams are taken, some teachers host a “party” in class. This consists of students in the class bringing in snacks, drinks, utensils, napkins, cups, etc.. Some teachers even like to play music to add to mood of happiness. Teachers like to reward their students for finishing the year with hardwork and dedication. The parties are a way to relax. “The party after my AP exam was such a relief, it was good to chill, eat food, and talk with my classmates,” sophomore Adam Greenberg said. As the school year comes to an end, students in those specific classes begin to take AP or Advanced Placement exams. Due to the new grading policy, RQA’s or Required Quarterly Assessments are taken by students instead of exams. Because of this, the only exams being taken in the school are for AP classes. All AP classes don’t do the same exact thing after the exam, but parties are the general idea of what they do. An example of this is Fevronia Cresham’s period two AP government and politics or NSL class. On May 5 Cresham’s period two class had an after-exam party. People brought in cookies, brownies, chips, candy, napkins, for everyone to share. During the party, Cresham and her students listened to music and interacted with each other. For the 45 minute period the class was talking to one another, enjoying awesome food, and listening to music.Another AP exam party that occurred was in FNs. Barclays period 4, AP Psychology class. While they were chowing down on delicious snacks they watched a movie.  “I couldn’t wait to sit down with some chips and relax watching a great movie. It’s a great way to relieve stress and just unload. I can’t wait for the parties next year to come,” junior Max Museles said. One more AP exam party happened in Matt Winters NSL class during period 3 on May 9. Similar to other parties, this one consisted of snack and beverage while listening to music. “Ending a class after a full year of work with a party just made me smile,” sophomore Zoe Weiss said.
