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."

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.

My son and a few friends snuck into the school and put the desks from all of the first floor rooms on the roof.

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.

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.

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  in  mn  on  Thu Jun 14, 2007  at  02:53 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!

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.

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.

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  in  NO  on  Tue Jul 03, 2007  at  04:09 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.

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
