OP ED: Between Fall and Winter Break

OP ED: Between Fall and Winter Break

David Cooper, Reporter

After Fall Break, most students experience an increase in stress, anxiety, depression and a decrease in motivation. This is due to the intense 4 four week period between Fall break and Winter Break. The second marking period is one of the shortest marking periods as a result of these breaks. These effects can often lead to a decrease in students grades and GPA. Students ask teachers to be understanding and try their best to space out summatives, and relieve the homework burden.
