High Schoolers Are Celebrating The End Of School With Epic Paper Tosses

Some students "surfed" down the mountains of paper.

Teens are making it rain literal paper to celebrate the end of the school year.

A bunch of videos of a students throwing their notes, essays, and folders from the year have been making the rounds on Twitter and they are EPIC.

Some schools do the paper toss as a last-day tradition or a graduating senior-specific activity. 

One toss, at Basha High School in Chandler, Arizona, was caught from two different angles and ended with students “surfing” down the paper-coated stairs.  

Basha senior Jordan White has over 30,000 retweets on his video and spoke to an ABC 15 about the toss:

“People came with the boxes, suitcases filled, all sorts of things filled with paper and just dumped it out,” he told the outlet. “There was such a thick coating of paper that you could just slide right down the stairs, it was wild.” 

At White’s high school, the toss is tradition and students pitch in to clean it all up afterward so custodians don’t get stuck with all that irritating grunt work. 

“It’s all recycled, there was lots of concern if it was recycled or not, but it’s all recycled,” White added.

Happy graduation, y’all.
