Any student that needs help before finals will be able to attend Cocoa Cram at the Upper Campus cafeteria on Monday, Dec. 19 to get the help they need from teachers and student tutors. It will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Students every semester take an assessment based on what they have learned during the current semester. These assessments could contain projects, presentations, papers, etc. that are given to students a week prior or on the finals days, Dec. 21-22. 

Finals are worth 10% in every class. Students are expected to study and go over and cover everything they have learned over the semester. 

This year, NHS students and teachers are hosting Cocoa Cram, a study group at MCHS to prepare students for their finals. This study group will have hot cocoa and other treats for students who attend. 

“I’m helping work the concessions,” said Dom Caruso, a senior at MCHS. “Even though I’m working concessions I can kind of lighten up their day, and, you know, spark the energy to study for finals.” 

Along with the concessions, there will be teachers and tutors to help guide students while studying.

“We are just going to be helping out whoever needs it for any subject,” stated Mara Torres, vice president of NHS. 

Students participating in Cocoa Cram are also a part of the National Honors Society. These students will be gaining NHS hours for their volunteering.

“I think it’s a good way to help out the student body,” added Torres. “We are getting volunteer hours with the NHS, but it’s not the reason why I’m doing it. We’re doing it to help out our fellow classmates.”
