February 2, 2012

LINCOLN — Central Elementary School fourth-grader Maggie Cabana didn't want to let down her fellow students, so she decided to prepare her Wednesday lunch the night before.
“I made it at about 7:30 (p.m.); I made my peanut butter crackers, strawberries and an orange with the peel taken off, then put them all in plastic containers,” she admitted. “I did it so I wouldn't forget anything. I was scared that I'd put it into plastic bags. I didn't want to forget that's against the rules (for this lunch).”
