April Fools


On April 1st, an excited student, eager to learn, discovered that he had earned an A+ on his English essay. This rare occurrence nearly caused him to cry out of happiness, excitedly exclaiming “I never thought it was possible to get an A+ on an English assignment!”. The reality, however, was far more depressing. As part of an April Fools’ prank on her students, Mrs. Toulmin crossed out the original test grade that students received on their essays and instead replaced it with an A+. After allowing her students to revel in their false sense of happiness, Mrs. Toulmin then proudly declared “Happy April Fools, you all failed”. The aftermath of the prank left many students in tears.
