Desert Springs Time Capsule 2015-2045

DESERT SPRINGS TIME CAPSULE

2015 - 2045

 
Time capsules are planted to remember a special place, time and group.  2014-2015 a special time for Desert Springs Preparatory.  It's not every school community that comes together with a project of this nature.  It requires effort, initiative, creativity and planning.  The concept for the time capsule came from our School Council and recent efforts to locate a time capsule from the early days of Desert Springs.
 
 
Our time capsule included artifacts from all of our classrooms:
 
Dr. Lee, PVSchools Superintendent, contributed a letter. 
 
School Board Member Anne Greenberg contributed an artifact and was interviewed for a place in Mrs. Cutler's book.
 
Mr. Hummert contributed a letter, several rolls of pennies and a few rolls of nickels.  Mr. H predicts that pennies and nickles will no longer be made or used in 2045, so he included a penny for each future student.  Students on the Hawk and Soaring list get a nickel as well.  Mr. H also included a mint proof set of coins for 2014.
