Merrimac Elementary Turns Back Time

Merrimac Elementary Turns Back Time  thumbnail136337
Students throughout Merrimac Elementary School gathered in excitement for a special assembly that showcased items from a time capsule left by Merrimac students in 1989. 

As part of the assembly, students reviewed a collection of popular items from 30 years ago such as a Merrimac T-shirt, materials from the nurse’s office and classwork that included self-portraits, students’ wishes for the world and learning activities students engaged in at that time. 

Later this year, Merrimac alumni will visit the school to view the materials their class left and view the items current students will be placing within the time capsule to be reopened years from now by future Merrimac students.
