Students in web design teacher Sandra Durham’s Web Design 3 class help maintain the LHS web page. A mysterious image appeared on the main page sometime last week that appears to be of the phenomenon “Slender Man,” made famous by a video series by Youtube user “MarbleHornets.”

Senior Joey Serrano is a web design student who claims responsibility for the appearance of Slender Man.

“Halloween was coming up, and I wanted to enlighten our website and get it ready for Halloween,” Serrano said. “Slender Man is a scary dude.”

However, Serrano could have been bribed by Slender Man himself. The DailyProwl informed students of the phenomenon and recorded their reactions.

“It looks like it’s from the game ‘Penumbra,'” junior Tori Patterson said.

“Why does he have long fingers?” sophomore Chris Baker said. “It looks like Roswell dressed in a tuxedo.”

“Slender Man is amazing,” junior Tommy Roberts said.
