Fisher students create time capsule on last day of school


Fisher Elementary School students Brody Lang, right, and Katelyn Schwartz await the next class submission for the school’s time capsule during an assembly on May 31.

It was time to pack up the school supplies for the summer on the last day of school at Fisher Elementary School on May 31. Students also packed one more thing away that won’t be open for 25 years during an all-school assembly.

Students put together a time capsule with items from each class such as posters, written material and other information on what currently goes on at the school and the community.

Fisher Principal Vicki Vopava then locked up the crate.

“It will be open in 2041,” said Fisher fourth grader Brody Lang, one of the leaders of the project. “I will be 35 (years old).”

The project was led by the Fisher Extended Learning Program students and teacher Deb Christenson.

“This is a snapshot of what the district looks like right now,” Christenson said.

Superintendent Dr. Marvin Wade attended the assembly and met with students previously as they got ideas for what to put in the time capsule.
