Senior Pranks 2006

Status: Mischief
Most high schools are now out for the summer, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to pause and remember some of the senior pranks that made headlines this year. As usual, they're a mix of the clever, stupid, rude, and cruel.

Car on roof - image Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK High School: School officials found a Honda Accord "painted neon pink and covered with green question marks" on the roof of the high school. "Nassau police and school officials said yesterday that dozens of students used crudely made ramps to drag the Honda Accord... onto the roof."

Power out - Neuqua Valley High School: Two students were arrested for attempting what they called the "senior prank of all senior pranks." Their plan was to disable a generator and take "other steps to ensure the power would go out and classes would be canceled for younger students still in school." They were caught in the act by a custodian and arrested at their homes.

School for sale - Cape Fear Academy: "During the night before their last day of school Friday, about 20 members of the senior class strung a $215, 3-foot-by-9-foot vinyl sign with large, red letters spelling out "Entire School For Sale" and the school's telephone number between two posts in front of the school yard on South College Road. Another 20 or so smaller "For Sale" signs were peppered around the grounds."

Squealing pig - Severna Park High School: Students "released a squealing 31-pound piglet named Hamilton into the halls on the sinister date of 6/6/06 ... Purloined from a county park for an end-of-year stunt, the 3-month-old pig -- nickname: Hammy -- appeared Tuesday morning in the math wing of the Annapolis area school between the first and second class periods. Administrators cornered the frightened animal near an exit, where he submitted to capture as students recorded the moment on their cellphone cameras. 'There was this crowd of people who were, like, 'Omigod, there's a pig,' ' said Sarah Wade, a junior."

Marijuana muffins - Lake Highlands High School: A friend of a student delivered marijuana-spiked muffins to the teachers lounge. "He brought bran muffins to suburban Lake Highlands High School on May 16, saying they were part of an Eagle Scout project. When school employees ate the muffins, they began complaining of nausea, lightheadedness and headaches, and were briefly hospitalized. "They were just thinking it would be fun to get these teachers all silly and giggly," said Rita Greenfield, an 86-year-old receptionist at the school who spent two days in the hospital after eating the muffins.

Cruelty to animals - Ponderosa High School: "The local news broadcasters used words like 'horrified,' 'abusive behavior' and 'unbelievable act of cruelty' to describe the so-called senior prank at an area high school that involved someone dropping 45 baby chicks from a second-floor balcony, resulting in the deaths of seven of the chicks.... Four years ago in the county, a student at Highlands Ranch High School threw a rabbit across the gymnasium at a pep rally, breaking its legs and paralyzing it. The rabbit was later destroyed." (Good grief! PETA needs to open a chapter in that county.)

Doors glued shut - Independence High School (San Jose): "Right in the middle of finals week, an entire high school campus was virtually shut down Tuesday morning, after somebody glued classroom doors shut... The pranksters used super glue, as well as toothpicks in the locks. The numbers "06" were also painted on school buildings... As exams were delayed and students and teachers milled about this morning, maintenance crews used blow-torches to melt the glue that was squirted onto classroom locks."

Personalized underwear - East Aurora High (suburban Chicago): Several seniors were banned from attending graduation "as punishment for participating in an end-of-the-year prank last week that involved spray painting school property, stealing a statue of the Tomcat mascot and hanging underwear adorned with printout photos of administrators' faces in front of the building.... The damages have cost the district $1,700,"

Baby oil on floor - Omaha Burke High School: Students spread baby oil on the school's floors, resulting in injury for one teacher. "The principal of Omaha Burke High School underwent knee surgery Tuesday for an injury she suffered when she slipped on baby oil spread by vandals on the school's floors... Officers had caught five 18-year-olds inside the school, where 20 locker doors had a glue-type substance put in their locks and where the floors and stairs were coated with baby oil.

Flat tires - Jefferson High School (New Jersey): "a high school prankster deflated the front tires of 24 school buses parked at a Weldon Road compound Tuesday, but district officials weren't laughing as they were forced to cancel classes for more than 3,600 students... In addition to the tire damage, the vandals left behind another clue: The numbers "06" spray-painted on one of the buses."

Alcohol allowed - Daniel Hand High School: "Parents of high school seniors received a letter from Daniel Hand High School, with official letter head, concerning the upcoming prom. Included,a policy about drinking that it was allowed!... Principal Barbara Britton acted immediately to get the word out that this letter was not authentic posting a message on the school's website saying: "Let me assure you that underage drinking and the serving of alcoholic beverages is not permissible at the senior prom or any sponsored school event."

At our school, all senior prank ideas are given to the class's faculty advisor, who takes them to the superintendent for approval, but none of the other administrators get to know what they are. It keeps people from doing illegal/harmful things, and therefore people have to get much more creative!

My psych teacher told me about the class of 76. There are two smallish hills in our courtyard, and they made a giant bra out of tarps and put it over the hills. They also planted a small bush on each, as "nipples", which are still there!

My idea for this year is to put furniture in the hallways. Recliners, sofas, beds. But in places where they're out of the way, like at the bottom of a stairwell where there's always a bunch of room. Also, b/c we're the class of 07, we're doing something with James Bond. I don't know what yet.

Today is my day for our senior prank. A group of friends have written a very convincing letter to be taped to the front door of the school explaining that if school isn't cancelled for the day that something catastrophic could happen to the football field. (Finished three days ago with Turf... took months and cost tens of thousands.)

Then out on the field we used baby powder to write 'boom'.

Hopefully this interests anyone. Looking forward to seeing the results.

I've talked to my parents about what their senior pranks were and they were both the same concept and completely legal.

When they shook hands with the principal at graduation when getting their diplomas, my mom's class handed the principal beer bottle tops, and my dad's class handed the principal condoms.

Another thing that our class thought about doing is something called "Chop, Chop, Chop...Timber!" Basically, the concept is that someone or a group of people at graduation (like when they say "We present the class of '07") yells "Chop, Chop, Chop!" and then the rest of the class yells "Timber!" and falls out of their chairs. I thought this one was cute, and if you do it near the end of graduation then I don't think there will be any consequences.

well i am a junior at LCHS but today (May 16,2007) is the seniors last day of school. As we all drove in the parking lot this morning, our assistant principles golf cart that he drives around the student parking lot to monitor student activity had been " tee-peed" with a banner on it that said "PRANK ON HANK" which is Coach Wrights first name. The wheels on the golf cart had been taken off and it was sitting on bricks. Everyone will remember coming into the parking lot and remember seeing the infamous golf cart. gotta love our seniors!

One of the best senior pranks ive ever seen was the one my class did in 87 me and a couple of my good friends had took an auto class as seniors and the night before graduation we took our principles VW bug took the thing apart so that it was in small enough peaces to carry through the door of the schoool and then we reasembled it while it was in the hallway so then he wasnt able to drive it back out because the doorway was too narrow. lol

My school administrators told a few of us that we could play a senior prank but they would have to be there to supervise (like an official school function-yuk). We ended up not doing a prank at all because they also told us that there would be 24 hour survalence.

today ot my school, 5k crickets were released throuought the school, and the sulprits were unable to be tracked down. Awesome, right? and a case of 20 stink bombs were scattered around. God that stunk.

On May 17, 2007 we put washable paint all over the concrete and used window markers on the all the glass and windows. there was also about 40,000 ft of papertowels that a student stole from the school the week before, covering the school and all the trees on the property. We also used cables to lock the parking gates which cause about a 45 minute line to get into school. The cables were taken off about 10 minutes before class was to start.

If any of ya'll live in the south, then you have gotta try this prank. plant kudzu in the football field or where ever you prefer, around a flagpole, in the gutters, on the roof, around playground equipment. Kudzu, if you don't know, is very hard to kill, and it keeps coming back over and over if you do not dig out all the roots. Another plus is that it grows very fast and if you plant it in enough places, then there is no way it can all be dug up in time to prevent it from spreading over a large area. It pisses the school administrators off greatly. Haha... we planted 07 on the football field...

I havnt seen very many good pranks. me and my friends superglued 100 eggs to the hallway floors(they break when you pick them up) we also filled a small courtyard with foam. we froze about 150 cans of shaving cream, stabbed them with screw drivers and threw them in.

Some idiots at my school pulled a prank that no one found funny this year. Last Thursday, someone spray painted the entire school with black spray paint. Among some of the graffiti was "Drunk as hell, high as heaven, we're the class of 007." Not to mention that they spelled most of it wrong. The administration was not very happy, and our principal had to go and get his powerwasher from his house so that the janitors could get the graffiti off before the news crews got there.
Then, on the same day, some more idiots decided that they wanted to set loose about 24 baby chicks and a rooster in the halls. They only set loose the rooster before the principal caught them and kicked it out the door. It spent the rest if the day wandering around the school before it crossed the road and hasn't bee seen since.

Me and some kids in my class really want to do a school prank on the last day before we leave. We really want to be remembered for something but without getting in trouble or going to juvey haha. We were thinking of silly string EVERYWERE!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Kaylee  on  Tue May 22, 2007  at  04:38 PM
One year the seniors got the janitor to let them into the school at night and they all set up tents and stuff in the hallway and camped out, and one year they realeased thosands of crickets

We did our prank this last weekend. We had 16 people involved and it took 4 hours in the middle of the night to complete. We moved all the desks from every classroom out of the rooms and into our gym and into our wrestling room. The best part is we had two students sneak into the school and turn off the record on the surveillance cameras. The only thing the administration knows is a 4 hour gap of taping. It took the whole student body (1000 students) the whole first hour to get desks back to classrooms. It was a perfect prank because no vandalism, not caught on camera, can't tell anything is wrong from outward appearance, the whole school finds out, and disrupts class. the best part is that even our administration was impressed and laughing about how great a prank it was. People are talking about how there must have been like 50 students and a teacher involved. Nope, it was only 16 students, 7 months of planning, and 5 genius planners.

wow..billy..that sounds awesome..i dont know what our class is gonna do but i know it involves...07..for sure..cuz 2007 is simply the best..right..right lol

make the halls into one big slip 'n slide. by laying down tarps and putting water and soap on them.

it works 😊

I was told today of a class a few years ago that managed to go to Big Boy, take welding torches and disconnect the Big Boy from the ground, load it into the back of a truck, use pullies and levers to get the Big Boy into the completely inclosed school court yard and cemented it to the ground. another one is to get the help of a janitor, get into the room for the most loathed teacher, set small alarm clocks to go off at five minute intervals, and put them under the ceiling tiles.
Posted by Jessica  on  Thu May 24, 2007  at  06:03 PM
My son and a few friends snuck into the school and put the desks from all of the first floor rooms on the roof.
Posted by George Fredricks  on  Fri May 25, 2007  at  12:02 PM
my idea is to get as many seniors possible to wear their bathing suit and bikinis to school. and i mean suits only, no shirts. my school wont have enough "dress for success" shirts to hand out and wont bother sending us all home. then to top it off at the end of the day a slip n slide will be made in the hallway ramp leading to the senior lot. we plan only using a large tarp and some sort of oil or lube. any ideas to add?

My Highschool has two large towers in he main building where most classes are held. In 2001 some kids walked a full grown cow up all the stairs and then left it there. If you don't know, cows can't walk down stairs so they had to get a crane to get it out of the tower. It was hilarious because the next week they let loose 3000 crickets into the auditorium during finals.

my class prank is taking place tomorrow, we have a student whose parents own a landscaping company and we are bringing in a convey of trucks filled with sand and it will be dumped in the parking lot entrance, then all the seniors are coming back with baby pools, swim trunks and tropical shirts 😊

The seniors actually did something at my school this year. The past years have sucked. Last year they just wrote stuff on the doors with sidewalk chalk and drew pictures on the sidewalk...lame. Anyway this year they made a wall of desks in one of the halls and saranwrapped them together. They toiletpapered everything: the trees, gym, and commons. There was flour in the commons, gym and courtyard. They put a metal panther (our school mascot) on the roof and painted 007 on the roof. They took window paint to every door in the building and completely covered the bathroom mirrors with it.
Earlier this year they changed the sign hanging over the gym entrance from "I will not lie, cheat or steal nor will I stand those who do" to "I will lie cheat..."
We have a really uptight school so the principle's reaction was hilarious.
Posted by Lola  on  Mon Jun 11, 2007  at  11:56 PM
our school last year, the seniors put jello mix in the pool. you know what happended next... well this year some stupid ones painted our school statue pink and wrote things on our new buildings. they got caught eventually and theyre getting expelled... bummer
Posted by Valentina  on  Wed Jun 13, 2007  at  12:32 AM
Okay, now this one should be used if you have a rival high school in a nearby town like we do. Don't do this near homecoming or graduation, because even though you hate them and all, that's still kinda messed up.

Most weed killers kill the weed and the grass surrounding it. Get a standard weed killer and spray "________ High School Sucks" and then a picture of a...well, you know. They can't just take off the grass because if they take off the dead grass, it'll leave a dirt outline.

This prank really is harmless and is pretty mild compared to most I've read.

Another one is to wait until the football field has been watered, and that night or the next, put powdered milk all over the football field. When the dew falls the next morning, especially if it's hot out, the air will smell horrible around the field.

a couple years ago some one threw the dead cats from the biology classes ofer the balcany into the mall area were everyone meets between classes
Posted by c  on  Thu Jun 14, 2007  at  12:53 AM
some of those are really good but others are lame as hell...the class of 2005 at our school put cow shit all over the front entrance doors and ALL the windows on the outside, it smelt horrible, plus it was easy to get the cow shit cuz our school is in the middle of no where and like half of the students are hicks and farmers...that is the most memorable so far at our school...until the CLASS OF 2008 pulls of an even better one!

this year the yr13's at my school relased a few dozen rape alarms attached to helium balloons in the school library. the libray roof is aout 10m high also and the alarms can be heard up to a mile away and can't e turned off without the pins

the senior class at my school this year attempted various things. they first had what many of you know as "senior blockade" where they all stood in the stairways and wouldnt move. this failed because there are 8 ways to go down the stairs at my school. they attempted to have a slip n slide, but everyone already knew about it; including the administrators so the confiscated the slip n slide before it occured. they threw crickets on all of the lockers- this actually wasnt bad.

the senior class last year had a water balloon fight between classes. 30 people brought in water balloons in and at the end of 2nd period they put them next to a locker base. it was awesome. not just the seniors, but most of the students were soaked as well as some of the administratots.
Posted by john  on  Sun Jun 17, 2007  at  07:52 PM
My senior prank was running around the school naked until I got man handled by the police to the ground and the girls started laughing and screaming fat chode. I still dont know what that means. But it was still funny. I thought so. Oh, and I weigh 300 pounds, and my tits are a size 38DD.

My friends and my senior prank is gonna be to buy all the cans of shaving cream that we can and then empty all the cans out into the cafeteria one night.
Posted by PCHS '10  on  Thu Jun 21, 2007  at  03:05 PM
we were gonna take a heavy chain and wrap it around the axel of the principals car and then lock the chain to a pole, it would be soo funny...but our school just put in security cameras. that sucks.

My friends had an idea to sneak into the school and rig the TV's in the cafeteria so they couldn't turn off and play porn full blast during lunch hour.

one time at my school the seniors let 3 pigs loose on the campus. one had a 1 spray painted on its side, the other had a 2, and the other had a 4. everyone spent the hole day looking for number 3 but there wasn't one.
Posted by NO  on  Tue Jul 03, 2007  at  02:09 PM
I hear all these 1,2, and 4 things. Hasn't anybody tried doing like 'x' with 1,2,3,5,6,8,9,10,12 etc? where there's no 4,7 and 11? If you're gonna do a prank, don't make it crappy and doable in 10 minutes.

I'm not sure what I'm gonna do this yr. Everyone sucks at my school, no one in my grade has any good ideas and last yrs prank was throwing a couple rolls of TP in the hallways. Gayest prank ever, most people didn't even know it was a prank.
Posted by Josh  on  Fri Jul 06, 2007  at  12:44 AM
Im not in highschool yet but ive hard of many pranks yet to be pulled at warwick high.
One of my favs is the crickets. Order crickets on the web around $90.00=5000 crickets. at night you climb in the school and release the crickets or u could also do this with roaches. Anyways release the roaches or crickets and let the games begin. the most amount of trouble you could get into is 5 day sspension. which only goes on your perm. record and that is what college ppl look @. or you might have to pay extermination fee of $500.00
Posted by Paige Allshouse  on  Sat Jul 07, 2007  at  06:14 PM
Yo ppl you really need to come up with original out this world pranks. like seriously i'm not even in highschool and i've heard of like all of these but thanks for the comentary.
Posted by Paige Allshouse  on  Sat Jul 07, 2007  at  06:28 PM
go to another school... like an enemy. Take their mascot and tp it. then spray paint it a different school color so they won't even suspect your school.!!!!:]
