Ohio Custodian Creates ‘Treasure Hunt’ for Students

March 19, 2024

According to Fremont News Messenger, a custodian at Clyde High School in Clyde, Ohio, has created an activity for students that she believes “brings a smile to their day”—and is helping with student attendance.

Clyde custodian Stacy Heskett came up with an idea to create a type of treasure hunt for students, by hiding little resin figurines of animals throughout the school.

“I got the idea from the painted rocks that people collect and thought little figures to collect would be a start,” Heskett told the Messenger. “I place them around the school for students and staff to find and keep.”

According to the article, students come to school early to find and collect the nearly 600 figurines Heskett hides every two weeks. With hidden figurines now totaling in the thousands, Heskett thinks the activity helps keep students off their phones, and Clyde High School principal Joe Webb thinks the hunt is helping to get kids to school.

“More students are turning up to search for them, and attendance is rising,” Webb told the Messenger.
