The WHOOOOO Tunnel

After every break and on our way back from lunch, every student would form a tunnel in front of the classroom door. Our teacher, Emily, would run through with joy, then we would force our T.A. Bethany to go through. Bethany never enjoyed this tradition. As they went through the tunnel, the class would all sing the same note and go, "WHOOOOOOOO-". After both Bethany and Emily had gone through, the class would split from the tunnel, starting at the end, and run through the tunnel until everyone was back in the classroom.
