Hello students, staff, and families of Bishop Blanchet High School. This petition was made to propose the idea of cancelling the semester finals. During this global pandemic it has added more stress to all of our lives. Another layer of stress on top of keeping up with daily assignments, studying for unit tests, staying on top of membean. With finals coming up in two weeks I know I have been more stressed recently than I have ever been in my life. Even before Covid-19 student's mental health was torn apart during finals week, due to sleep deprivation and stress. Now we are going through a global pandemic, that is adding unprecedented stress levels to students. As a student from a catholic school, I believe mental health of all people is more important than a score on a test. Not to mention finals does not accurately show if students understand the materials. Students study for finals to pass a test not to understand the concepts. Comprehension is the reason why we wake up and sign into zoom every morning. By cancelling finals there will be a significant load of stress being released. Students who have less stress are able to comprehend more, listen better, and are more likely to participate in class. So I hope you will join me by signing this petition to open up the idea of cancelling the semester finals at Bishop Blanchet High School.
