Most students fear a trip to the assistant principal’s office.
But all day today, students streamed in to see Pat Micinilio at Staples.
The attraction was a senior prank. A group of 12th graders had turned his office into a tin foil wonderland. It was everywhere: his desk, his computer, his tchotchkes. Even the candies he keeps in a bowl were individually foil-wrapped.
Many seniors head off next week for 4-week internships, so this is their last week of classes. Before leaving, the tin-foil gang left their assistant principal a loving note. They thanked him profusely for all he has done for them — and noted that this was a fitting way to “wrap” up their time with him.
It was the only part of his office they did not touch.
