Exam Week – Resources and Workshops

January 17, 2019

The Positive School Culture Crew would like to help you make it through the exam week with these resources and workshop options following the exam block.  Just a reminder there is no late bus, so if you do plan to stay for a workshop, you will need to find a ride home.

BULLETIN BOARD: Check out the Bulletin Board near the main entrance in the 100 hallway with QR codes for resources to help you Crush your Midterms and Finals. From study tips to spotify playlists to help you study, this resource is one to check out!

You may also access the information here:


WORKSHOPS: During the exam week, there will be five different 30-60 minute workshops offered to students and staff looking for a mental health break from studying, test-taking, and grading.  Workshops will be held at 11:00 am on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.  If you would like to participate in any of the workshops, please click through the survey to find the workshop(s) you are interested in and simply write in your name to sign up.  Please note, some workshops have an additional prompt to check off.

Below is a list of the workshops and their descriptions.   Registration closes one school day before the workshop.  You may email the instructor to check space if you wish to attend after that time.
