Principal Writes Tooth Fairy Letter After Student Swallows Tooth

Posted: Updated:

One second grader was very worried that the Tooth Fairy would not visit him after he swallowed his tooth at Stonewall Elementary School.

He was eating lunch Monday when his tooth disappeared!

“Did I lose my tooth? So I was looking around, didn't know where my tooth was and then I realized, I swallowed my tooth,” Sam Heersche explained to LEX 18’s Evan Gorman.

Sam told Evan that he was very upset and he wondered if the Tooth Fairy would still pay him a visit.

That’s when Principal Bill Gatliff stepped in to help.

Gatliff wrote a letter to the Tooth Fairy, explaining that Sam is an honest boy and hated the fact that he lost his tooth.

"I explained to him you just take this letter home, put it under your pillow, it will work just the same as the tooth,” said Gatliff.

Sam did just that.

“And when we opened it up, there was a dollar from the tooth fairy inside of it,” said Sam.

Evan asked Sam how excited he was when he found the dollar.

“I was pretty excited, I mean I was amazed!” The second grader exclaimed. “I don't know how the tooth fairy got the dollar inside of the envelope.”

That part remains a mystery.
