At Lincoln High, April Fool’s Day is always a festive holiday for both student and teachers. Epically when a teacher is retiring like IB Coordinator John Heineman.
Heineman got pranked by the IB students and other staff members before he even entered the building. His office (Rm 331) was filled with balloons and toilet paper around his room by the time he got to school on Wednesday. He appreciated the expression of “good, clean fun.”
“I think they know I’m leaving and they wanted to wish me well in a fun way,” Heineman said. “So I’m taking it as a nice way for them to pull a prank and still have a lot of fun.”
Another LHS teacher that got pranked was English teacher Deborah McGinn. Her students came in and put pictures of pandas all over her room. “It made me feel like, ‘oh they do like me a little bit,'” McGinn said. The students that played the pranked on her turned themselves and and she was happy. “It was a really fun prank, it really was,” McGinn said.
