She is encouraging everyone on Facebook to "Go Gold for Cancer Awareness" on your profile pic, like this:

In a new trend, High School Seniors are Tweeting about their painted parking spaces. With designs from pop culture, to motivational messages, to favorite sports teams, this is a trend we wished were around when we were in high school! Check out the awesome skills representin' below:

Mayte Lara graduated at the top of her class, as you can tell by her Tweet, but letting the world know that she was in the US illegally was probably not the smartest idea. Some people have voiced their support for Mayte, and say that she is a good example of a hardworking person who is working to better themselves, unlike the stereotypes of undocumented immigrants that people like Donald Trump have been spouting in the current election season. That didn't stop the fact that she got so much backlash on Twitter that she had to close her account. Some of the Tweets looked like this terrible Donald Trump meme:
Some people even reported her to the government.
Leonardo Semma got suspended in January for three days for trolling his school superintendent about snow on Twitter. He waited until graduation to share the incident on Twitter along with his suspension letter and it's now gone viral.

Apparently in Germany, kids get to plan their own senior parties. According to the Daily Mail, a stripper was brought in to the school under the guise of making a presentation on "equal rights" but obviously the kids learned about something else that day. The "speaker" came dressed in business attire and started out talking about teacher-student relationships, which she followed up by taking off that business attire and giving a few students a lap dance (as you can see in the video).
Since everyone in the room and involved was technically an adult and not underage, the teachers allowed the performance to go ahead. We imagine the school's official response to this event looked something like this:
Paula Beare is a math teacher from Toowoomba, Queensland, and her hand written note to Facebook has been shared over 73,000 times. The purpose of this experiment was to develop a mathematical equation for her students that tracked both likes and shares.
Well, congratulations, Paula Beare, you have become the most popular teacher in the country.
