Lost & Found Clothing

One thing that we have been discussing is to have a "Lost and Found Fashion Show." During lunch, once or twice a month, have a few student wear and display several items of clothing that are in the lost and found. Any thoughts on this idea, pros, cons, issues that we might not take into account?

Hi Steve,
Thought I would weigh in on this. I'm thinking the Fashion Show idea is so cute and fun, but I also think it is one of those things that could cause some parents concern. Some might not be too keen on their kids putting on other kids clothes (for whatever their personal reasons might be), or the kids might not want to give up the clothes they get to model (if they are very young).

When it comes to lost clothing and other items, it seems to be an "out of sight, out of mind'' thing, so the more ways to put the lost items in front of the parents -- like the idea of displaying lost and found items at big events -- the more likely stuff will be reclaimed.

Take pictures of lost items and make a student 3rd grader or older to add, upload it to an app or webpage using a school provided ipad 
 Every day after school for 10 min , students can take turns to take pictures and update inventory. Parents can see updated inventory everyday and can ask the main office to delete the items from inventory once they r picked up.
No one pays a penny , and every day the pictures make it lot more easy for families to find lost items.
You can add item number to the pics or funny labels for more fun with inventory
