The rush to finish as grades for underclassmen due Tuesday

Advik Dixit
After more than 160 school days, the end of the 2023-24 school year is in sight as grades for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are due Tuesday at 8:00 a.m.

With school coming to a close, so does the door to grades. Senior grades are already finalized with grades for all other classes due Tuesday, leaving both teachers and Redhawks in a hurry to finish everything.

“I am trying my best right now in entering the final grades as Spanish three has finished all their assignments already, but Spanish one still has two more assessments that I have to grade before Friday,” Spanish teacher Ashli Taquino said. “The last week before grades are cut off is stressful especially when there are assessments on Friday and it needs to be graded the day of.”

Besides teachers, students like freshman Alishba Qureshi are rushing to finish all their assignments while still maintaining time to study for the final exams. 

“I am sort of stressed because there is a lot of pressure between trying to balance finishing all my assignments while studying for things like biology or Spanish,” Qureshi said. “I’ve been trying really hard to finish and I at least know that on Friday everything will be over and that I can finally relax. 

Unlike Qureshi, freshman Sarah Janparian is less worried as all her exams and assignments are over. 

“I honestly don’t have that many assignments or assessments left, I’m just finishing off the last few things I have to do and I’m free in most of my classes,” Janparian said. “I kind of just need my teachers to finish putting in my grades and I’m set for the rest of the school year.”
