Middle School puts yearbooks in 50-year time capsule

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

As part of an on-going 50th anniversary celebration at their school this year, students at Nettle Middle School in Haverhill, Mass., will be placing school yearbooks and other items in a time capsule on Friday, which won’t be opened until 2059.

The school held a 50th anniversary celebration ceremony earlier this week, and allowed visitors to come view the contents of the time capsule, including a chance to flip through the school’s old yearbooks.

As outlined in this account from the local newspaper, The Eagle-Tribune, students had a great time going through the historical materials and writing letters for the time capsule.

Has your school, or community, ever tried the time capsule idea before?
