facebook Opening your hall or gym locker can be a daunting task for any incoming sixth grader.

Spinning that combination locker until it clicks open is something the Strange triplets - Zoe, Hannah and Sophia - have perfected.

The Timber Ridge Middle School seventh graders helped Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 with this how to open your locker video.

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! #202proud #backtoschool2019
