Lincoln-Way East High School will host a Final Exam Prep Night for freshmen and their parents on Nov. 28, giving students an opportunity to better prepare for their first set of final exams.
Lincoln-Way North will host a similar event Dec. 3.
“We want to help parents and students understand what to expect during final exams and how they can best prepare for them,” said Erin Venezio, the reading department chair at Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way North high schools.
“They’ve never been through this before,” she added, “so they don’t know what to expect.”
Representatives from the schools’ Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) departments will be on hand to talk about the final exam schedules, bus schedules and how parents/students can calculate their grade point averages.
Teachers from the core content areas, including PE/Health, History, Math, English, Reading and Science, will take turns talking about the exams, what types of questions they can expect and how they can best prepare for them.
Study guides also will be distributed at each final exam prep night.
“The prep night is designed to help students understand time management, the importance of study groups and what materials to study from in order to do well on the semester exam,” said Venezio.
“The purpose is to provide students with the necessary study strategies to be successful on their final exams,” she added.
Lincoln-Way East will host its final exam prep night at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 28 in the school auditorium.
Lincoln-Way North will host its final exam prep night at 6 p.m. Dec. 3 in the school auditorium.
The events are free and open to all Lincoln-Way freshmen and their parents.
