Seniors Brendan Salva and Ryan Marasco arranged for a mariachi band to serenade the staff and students at Romeo High School as their senior prank. The band arrived at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, May 13, and was led by a group of 15 students through the school and into the lobby, library and offices. The band played for about a half an hour before classes began. Michael Kaufman referred to the serenade as a "classy prank" representing the seniors of 2015.
