Every day Thomson High School adds something new to the lost and found table that is set-up in the main office.
"There's never really anything real interesting, just your basic junk that everybody leaves around on a daily basis," said Assistant Principal Mike Smallwood.

However, those that deal with the items on a daily basis - like long-time secretaries Joyce Shurling and Libby Ansley - have seen some interesting things in their time at Thomson High.
"We've had the usual coats, clothes, books, and hats, but the most odd things that I've seen is pocketbooks with money in them, birth control pills, and one single shoe," Mrs. Ansley said smiling.
Things like this, as well as bookbags, band instruments, textbooks, and jewelry go unclaimed every year. The leftover goods are donated to charity on a yearly basis.
The lost and found at the school is set-up in the main office, and the students have access to it on a daily basis.
"I think the students then and now need to learn a little responsibility," Mrs. Shurling said.
