Challenge the decision that AP classes will keep working after the curriculum is complete

This petition had 239 supporters

AP students and teachers work extremely hard for eight months during the school year to prepare for our AP exams. After the exam, Advanced Placement curricula are complete, thus leaving us Seniors who take AP classes with two weeks before we get out to enjoy high school with no stress. In recent years, many teachers have opted to take their classes outside to enjoy the mid-May weather, and just to have fun as seniors and faculty should.

However, with new administration, Pembroke High School has mandated that all AP classes, even classes with seniors, continue working through the final day of school. Outrageous.

This is meant as a time for hard work to be rewarded and for these students to unwind. Instead of being stuck in a sweaty classroom on 75 degree days suffocating students with busy work, they can travel outdoors to the turf or baseball field and have a friendly game of wiffle ball or even go for a walk with their class.

Furthermore, many of these students have worked tirelessly and continuously for almost four full years. They deserve these two weeks to relax and indulge in such senior privileges, especially since their curriculum is over and there is no meaningful work left to be given.

So please sign this petition in support of the senior class and hard working faculty at Pembroke High School! Thank you!
