Chase Musser, 6, was excited when his tooth fell out at school. Wrapped in a napkin, he carried the tooth to the principal’s office. Excited by this right of passage, he was suddenly heartbroken when he realized the tooth was not in the napkin. It was gone forever.
The secretaries at N.B. Galloway Elementary in Channahon saved the day. They typed up an official letter to the tooth fairy signed by Principal Angela Stallion verifying the boy lost his tooth.
“It’s such a simple solution to a very big kid problem, it’s just genius on (the secretaries’) part,” Stallion said.
The next morning, the boy woke to $4 and a letter from the tooth fairy. It said to thank his principal and to keep brushing, according to his mom, Tracy Musser. Chase was so excited that he gave half his money to his little sister, Daisy, 4.
