  1. I go to the school next it it’s called centennial middle school and I hear and there’s weird stuff going on and me and my friend is doing research and trying to experience and I did see a ghost in the grave yard when I ran past it for gym and there’s a ghost at our school named Mr.Ed he died a long time ago and I’ve seen stuff happening!!!

    • Hey tiffany!! Are you going in to 9th grade this year? I think I went to school with you! I havent heard of mr.ed, but the middle school is haunted by a young boy who was found dead in his house. The cops sould not solve his death/murder, and he now follows the cops. I was in the office and I heard the police officer and the receptionist talking about it when I was waiting to be picked up. The receptionist said the room where the paper is kept is especially haunted, papers aways fall with no explination. Also, the hallway that leads from the art rooms to the office, has a weird persence. Im in cookies and canvas, so I am there after everyone else leaves because it goes until 5. When I walk alone or with my friend, I/we sense the boys spirit and hear weird sounds (weird whispering right by our ears, and strange sounding laughs) hope this helped.

  2. So there’s this story in my school Isanti Middle School. apparently these kids were practicing in the auditorium and all of a sudden the lights go out. The T.V that was unplugged suddenly turned on and showed this weird picture of a man that was pure white. One of the girls took a picture and handed it to the principal. He keeps the picture hidden in his office where nobody can see it. Ever since there have been weird noises and locked lockers opening.
