Rosecrest Elementary unearths 15-year-old time capsule

Mementos from the year 2000 were taken out of the ground at Rosecrest Elementary last week to the excitement of past and present students.

The time capsule has sat on the school’s property for the past 15 years. Although similar containers may sit untouched for decades, this particular time capsule had instructions to be opened “May 2015.”

The capsule contained folders filled with handwritten notes from students detailing interests, hobbies and aspirations for the future. Former students and teachers pored over the long forgotten papers with nostalgic delight.
