Marisol is new to Park Elementary, and she is eager to make some friends. Her chance comes when she and classmate Spencer team up to read the school announcements on April Fools’ Day.

Almost everyone falls for their prank, and everyone thinks Marisol and Spencer are very funny when their prank is revealed.
