Bring on MAY and the final few weeks of the school year. I am sure if you are like me you see the finish line as both the joyous conclusion of a good school year as well as the pressure cooker to fit everything in that you haven't covered yet. In that spirit we come together and try to prepare for the final round of the school year.
Tonight's Questions are brought to you by Exhilarated Panic, and Joyous Trepidation or whatever big words you can think of to mean a mix of happiness and stress.
