Students should get credit when it's due them. Doing senior pranks that don't harm anyone or property is certainly a sign of creativity and ingenuity. Earlier this week some San Diego seniors attempted to move desks and chairs onto the athletic field in an "09" configuration. Admittedly, they did get caught by the security system, but -- seriously -- why did the adults feel they needed to charge the students for tresspassing or curfew violation?
It's commendable, especially in today's society, to hear about students who think of senior pranks that cause no harm. Students dressed in banana costumes chasing a fellow student in a gorilla costume is just plain good, clean fun. Placing plastic forks in the soccer field spelling out their school year was great fun at Peak to Peak Charter School in Lafayette a few years ago.
So, a word of encouragement to all the adults in school systems throughout the U.S.: let these graduating seniors enjoy their last few days at your school!
