In order to relieve the stress of finals, the Activities Class came up with a creative solution. During a break in between finals students from the Activities Class filled the commons with bubble wrap and balloons so students could run around, jump up and down and in some cases roll around on the ground to pop all of the bubble wrap and balloons. The sound of popping could be heard throughout the highschool for over 10 minutes! Who doesn't love the feeling of popping bubble wrap!
