The Sticky 29 Seniors


RAVENA, NY - The students suspended for their senior prank at Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School held a get together on Tuesday.

The Half Way House Tavern in Ravena welcomed the now infamous Sticky 29.

The Sticky 29 consists of the 29 students suspended after they posted 100,000 Post-It notes all over the high school. Last Thursday, the teens convinced a custodian to let them into the school after hours to decorate the walls and windows. The Sticky 29 is a collection of RCS's top students. Most of the students involved are on the honor roll and college bound. The pranksters even include the class Valedictorian and Salutatorian.

The graduating class was supposed to attend the school's senior party on Tuesday, but they were not allowed to attend. Instead they held a non-school funded event, which was complete with plenty of colored Post-It notes.

The school administration considers the prank as vandalism. However on the same day as their Post-It prank, someone spray painted outside the school. These vandals have not been identified.

Superintendent of Schools Elisabeth Smith says, "Our primary mission as a district is education, but developing responsible graduates who are prepared for adulthood is a facet of that goal. In this instance, we believe it was important to help our students understand the full implications of their actions, and that their actions have consequences."
