Exam Week 5/22-5/25

Dress Code

Students may wear t-shirts next week but the rest of the regular dress code still applies: shorts with a belt, socks, and tennis shoes.

Absences and Exemptions

If a student misses an exam because of an absence, please call Chris Williams at 314-567-3500 x 1222 to schedule make-up exams. Students exempt from an exam do not need to be at school during that period.

New Schedule

This spring, De Smet Jesuit is changing our exam structure so that exam periods are two hours long during the week of May 22. Our goal is to offer teachers the flexibility to assess student learning with traditional exams, projects, presentations, or other methods where students can demonstrate learning in ways that may require more time than our previous one-hour schedule allowed.

The first exam each day will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. and the second exam from 12 to 2 p.m. Lunch will be available in the cafeteria from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon. Exams are now scheduled by period rather than by subject and will take place as listed below.

Monday, May 22 - periods 1 and 2

Tuesday, May 23 - periods 3 and 4

Wednesday, May 24 - periods 5 and 6

Thursday, May 25 - period 7
