Deering High School seniors pull epic prank

In my days at Deering High School, I was pretty proud of myself for the various pranks that I pulled with my old buddies.

Senior prank

Like the time me and a friend snuck onto the roof at night and risked life and limb to hang this sign, which reads, “Get on your knees for the SR. class,” during Homecoming/Spirit week back in the fall of 2001.

The prank, which was approved by school administrators and cleaned up by the students, was a planned event to help give the seniors a final, lasting memory before the sun sets on their high school days.

“We didn’t want to do anything too bad,” said co-class President Mohammad NurĀ in an interview with WMTW News 8, “just bad enough.”
