Time Capsule Event

We celebrated the past, present, and future through participation in a Time Capsule Day!

Countless hours from our school team was invested in to this very special project for our students and this day included:

  • The unearthing of a time capsule buried by third and tenth graders in 1988 while listening to a special performance by our Apple Crate chorus.
  • Students spent their day learning about the 1980s, they learned more about the artifacts found within the time capsule and major events of that decade.
  • Our day culminated with the planting of seven new time capsules, one from each grade level, in a ceremony that involved all 1,000 of our students. It is our hope that this becomes a school tradition every 25 years!

To share this amazing event with our wonderful community, we have posted this video to highlight all of the Time Capsule festivities from the day.
