Mustangs from every grade level have a different plan of what their schedules will look like over these next few weeks.

“It’s hard to make time to celebrate because of exams,” junior Jenelle Bayor stated. “This year it’s been especially hard but a few weeks before exams, my family and I decorated our house and wrapped all our presents which helped to ease the stress.”

Senior Mason Ingallinera stated when she had extra time to spare, she decorated her family’s Christmas tree with the help of her sister.

Sophomore Phoebe Duval stated that after a long night of studying she likes to relax by watching her favorite Christmas movie, “Love Actually.”

Freshman Chad Anderson said, “This will be my first time taking an Advanced Placement (AP) midterm and I’m definitely really nervous about that. The holiday season definitely helps with this stress and gives me a silver lining when finals are over.”

With first semester coming to close, and exam season in full drive, many Mustangs are looking forward to their well-deserved break.
