Walking down the halls, it’s unlikely students ever think about what weird things are inside of their classmates’ backpacks. After interviewing a few people throughout the school, some odd things were discovered…

Junior Brianna Hebert found her grandma’s lip gloss in her backpack along with a bag of barbeque chips.  More things Brianna found were a ball of deodorant and her student ID from freshman year which she found very funny.

Junior Lauren Roe found a sandwich bag filled with tissues and a chocolate-covered raisin box. Along with these, she found plenty of Starburst wrappers and a lone blue balloon.

The next person interviewed was freshman Sean Rice. Inside of his backpack was a protein shake that was made at lunch, some bath bombs, and a modified version of Sponge Bob and Patrick he drew for extra credit.

Moving up through the school, senior Jill Jones found a lot of trash, a quiz from Econ that she received a 15/20 on, and her punch card for Starbucks. She also found her employee card for D&W so she can clock in and out.

Next up, sophomore Kenna Cisler found a coin and a lot of trash deep in the bottom of her bag. She joked, “I’m surprised that there isn’t a lot of trash in here!”

Carsen Kamminga, a freshman, found a lot of old food throughout his bag including cereal crumbs and a single Taki.  Along with this, he found a tape measure and a large number of papers shoved to the bottom.

The final person interviewed was junior Rylee McClure. The one thing that stood out to her was a broken fan with a picture of Las Vegas on it. She explained, “My dad bought it for me when he went to Vegas because he thought it was funny. I think it’s sweet!”

Next trip down the hallway, take a moment to ponder the mysteries of a passing backpack. Is that Jansport sporting more than just pencils and notebooks?
