The second annual Final Frenzy was hosted Dec. 11 and Dec. 12 to help prepare students for the upcoming midterms.

Students of all grades came to study and catch up with any work they may need to make up before the end of the semester. The teachers set up study groups with their students in the academic wings while other students took breaks in the cafeteria.

“It was a nice set up I think,” junior Zane Lopez said. “I liked how all the teachers were in one centralized area so I could easily go and get help from all of them if I needed to.”    

Concessions were sold in the Union immediately after school up until 9 p.m. Many students also brought food from outside vendors and shared snacks while working.

“There was candy, pizza, drinks and so much more sold right in the middle of the Union,” Lopez said. “It was really convenient to walk over and grab a quick bite to eat and then get back to studying.”

Students either participated in independent studies, group studies or teacher instructed reviews geared towards helping kids for what was to be on their final exams.

“At first, I reviewed some physics work with my friends in the union,” junior Nachelly Benavidez said. “I later went on to work with my math teacher on some topics I was really struggling with. I’m glad I had an opportunity to get what I needed to get done at my own pace and adhere to my own preference of study.”

Teachers thought the Final Frenzy went well and ran smoothly. Students were able to have help from teachers that they usually wouldn’t.

“It was definitely successful this year, but there is always room for improvement,” Benavidez said. “I’m excited to see what will be different next year.”
