Looking through the kitchen to the darkened cafeteria, Ann was startled to see a boy on a bike ride past the kitchen doorway leading to the gym! His head was down and Ann said he looked as if he was riding "home." It was baffling, because the gym was dark but the boy was lit up as if from a streetlamp. There were no windows to cast this light, nor was it a reflection from a kid riding past behind them. Either the boy was wearing red or his bike was red, but it was so fast that Ann was not sure which.
She thought it might be a real boy, perhaps the janitor's son, but it was a tiny gym and he was going too fast and going straight, and was a teen or pre-teen in size. And, Ann said, the lighting on or from him was weird, too. The gym was black except for the light shining on the kid. It was like a street light shining down on him, showing only him and not the interior of the gym.
And so the Pinewood Elementary School has a ghost -- perhaps a boy who was killed there while riding his bicycle?
Ann asked him if he ever sees anything strange there at night, and he said, "Sometimes I see people walking around in circles and peering through the windows. It kind of creeps me out."
