REEDSVILLE — Sixth grade students at Eastern Middle School recently buried a time capsule to be opened when the Class of 2027 graduates high school.

Dezere Martin, 6th grade language arts teacher, explained that the students had read about a time capsule which inspired them to create their own.

Students could put there own writings, news articles, or other items of their choosing in the capsule.

With the assistance of Middle School Principal Bill Francis, students sealed and bagged the time capsule to prevent moisture inside and then buried it near the playground.

Students who wanted to help we able to shovel the dirt back on to capsule to bury it.

A marker will be placed at the site where the capsule is buried to help locate it when it is time to open it.

Francis, who is leaving the district this summer to accept a position with Morgan Local, told the students that he will come back in six years when it is time to dig up and open the time capsule.
