“The Sound of Silence” revisited

The school day was finished. I sat down at my desk to correct a few remaining assignments when I looked up and saw this:

The original note, found last week after losing a series of competitions to my class, affixed to my clipboard of class rosters.

Just where I left it.

Below it, a new note.

The most impressive part of the whole thing is my students’ ability to just leave these notes behind without saying a word. Allowing the prank to play out without the benefit of watching it happen.

I know adults who lack this level of restraint.

Also, based upon the handwriting, it’s a different student this time.

They’re tag-teaming me now.
