"Oh. They have chickens today."
If I thought any more deeply about, I just naturally assumed they were doing something educational as well as exciting and hands-on.
It turned out that I thought wrong though, because when I went in to see the receptionist, her phone had no handset. And there was almost no light in the entire building, because the light bulbs were removed and hidden. And there were random locks on every locker, and pretend appendages sticking out from ceiling tiles*.
And there was a pick up truck in the cafeteria:
The point of senior prank, as I understand it, is to cause enough chaos so that it is impossible to hold regularly scheduled classes the following day. I'm going to say this year's crop of seniors was fairly successful.
Where did they get the live chickens I wondered?
"They rented them." my Sweet Pea informed me.
But of course. What kind of sorry excuse for a city would this be if one couldn't even rent a few live chickens for making mischief?
Have I ever mentioned that I love my kids' school? More Israel photos coming next time and have a great weekend!
*Including the skeleton arm sticking out from the chicken coop, although most of them were arms and legs, not bones.
