Perrysburg High School juniors celebrated "senior step-up day" by parking their cars all over the parking lot with window paint, silly string, and toilet paper covering all over some vehicles. 

Senior Bailey Miller said that, since Wednesday was the seniors last day at the high school, today juniors celebrate becoming seniors.

"The juniors think they're seniors today," Principal Michael Short said. "Kids take things too far sometimes. Honestly, they acted like idiots and took liberties they shouldn't have. I think some of them regret it now."

He said that cars were parked blocking emergency access to the building and parents were "rightfully" upset. Police showed up earlier in the morning to direct traffic. There were cars parked sideways in the lot, while others just lined up over speed bumps and driveways. 

The window paint had sexy seniors, S.T.O.P, and 2014 written on it. STOP stands for Seniors Taking Over Perrysburg.

"There are really good kids in this school," Mr. Short said. "They just have to learn their limits."
