Sarah Jones was a typical Fairview Elementary student. She loved music. She loved P.E. She especially loved recess and lunch. Also, Sarah was like many other Fairview students in another way:  She often left her lunchbox at school.


One late April afternoon, after the other students had already gone home, Sarah returned to school hoping to retrieve her lunchbox. She looked and looked but couldn’t find it anywhere in the classroom.


“My mom is going to kill me!” Sarah cried.


Okay, think. Sarah, she said to herself. How can you fix the situation?


Sarah thought for a few minutes. Then, like magic, an idea came to her. “The lost and found!” she cried. Sarah rested her hopes upon the heap of jackets, clothes, and lunchboxes commonly referred to as “Wal-View.” She ran back down the hall and toward the steps leading to the lost and found.
