PBIS: Locker Organization

If black slime oozes out of your locker when you open it, and you hear a weird growling sound deep within the abyss, maybe it’s time for some organization. And possibly an exorcism. What better way to start than with a video?

on how to organize your locker.

00:14

Well, we're here to help.

00:15

Although "killed by large pile of assorted locker garbage" [a girl complaining to the boy for blocking her locker]

00:19

would be a pretty sweet epitaph.

00:21

Well, before we even open Pandora's locker,

00:25

we want you to go out and buy a locker shelf.

00:27

And maybe a magnetic organizer and hooks.

00:30

They'll come in handy soon enough, we promise. [boy buying magnetic organizer and hooks from a store]

00:32

All right, now, where were we?

00:34

Right. Time to open it.

00:35

And, phew, looks daunting in there.

00:37

It's like the Cave of Wonders,

00:39

if the Cave of Wonders had been filled with

00:41

half-eaten sandwiches and gym socks. [image of locker with half eaten sandwich and gym socks inside]

00:44

So, first thing's first.

00:45

Take everything out of there. Great.

00:47

Now we have an empty locker and a pile of garbage in the hallway.

00:50

This is progress, people.

00:52

Don't let those judgmental looks

00:54

tell you otherwise. [people talking about the boy for his garbage filled locker]

00:55

Let's take a closer look at our monstrous pile

00:58

and see what's salvageable in there.

01:00

Sort your big, scary pile into three less scary piles:

01:03

garbage, keep, and take home.

01:06

And, no, the half-eaten sandwiches [boy trying to sort out the things from his locker]

01:08

do not go in the keep pile.

01:09

Don't be that kid.

01:11

All right, everything sorted?

01:13

Great. Let's deal with the garbage pile first.

01:15

Take that pile of fond memories

01:17

and ham sandwiches, but mostly just ham sandwiches, [boy and a girl with sandwich-head dancing]

01:20

and throw it in the nearest garbage can.

01:22

Yeah. We know it's hard, but there will always be

01:24

new sandwiches that come into your life.

01:26

You gotta be brave.

01:27

All right, nicely done.

01:28

Now you've got two piles.

01:30

The take home pile is aptly named, [packing the take home pile in a backpack]

01:32

so bundle all that stuff and take it home.

01:35

That leaves the keep pile.

01:36

All right, remember that locker shelf you bought earlier?

01:38

Time to use it.

01:39

Place your textbooks on the bottom shelf,

01:41

spines facing out so you can read what they are.

01:44

And stick your notebooks and folders on the top shelf. [placing text books in bottom shelf and notebooks and folders on the top shelf]

01:48

If you happen to buy a magnetic locker organizer,

01:50

and that'd be good,

01:51

put your miscellaneous school supplies in it

01:53

and stick it on the wall.

01:55

And if you went above and beyond the call of duty,

01:57

put those hooks up

01:59

and hang up clothing you're keeping at school. [sticking hooks inside of the locker door and hanging clothes]

02:02

And presto, there you go.

02:04

It's a brand new locker.

02:05

Keep it organized and you'll never have the need

02:07

to write another locker garbage-inspired epitaph

02:11

ever again. [woman crying at her son's grave]
