Five days before their official graduation, some seniors orchestrated a prank in the form of a slip’n slide outside of the cafeteria. Students hurried to set up a tarp and poured water on it using water bottles, then added soap. Prepared students wore swim gear, but many seniors went down in their normal clothing. May 25 is the last day of school for the class of 2017.

The prank lasted about five minutes before being stopped by administration.

Other seniors also put off stink bombs in trash cans and hallways.

Neither administration or those responsible for the prank responded immediately to comment.
