26 Year Old Time Capsule Unearthed at Franklin Elementary

FranklinTimeCapsule3On January 14th, the students and administration of Ben Franklin School unveiled a 26-year-old time capsule that was encased in the wall of the school rotunda in 1989. Students received a real life history lesson full of primary source information. Among the items contained in the time capsule was a 1989 year book commemorating Franklin school’s 100th anniversary. Other items retrieved from the time capsule included student performance programs, political stickers, newspapers and assorted photos and memorabilia. The unveiling served as a mini-reunion for a number of returning educators who had taught at Franklin back in the 80s. The take away for the students is that we are making history every day. The events that we’re witnessing in 2015 will one day be a part of history.
