Time Capsule


“Save A Memory” Time Capsule

As the end of the school year is quickly approaching, let’s work together to give your child something that they can keep to remember their Kindergarten experience. This project will be a time capsule that your child will not open until his/her graduation from high school!

I have a few things already that I would like to place in your child’s time capsule- a photo, sample work, and an art project. I need your help in providing more special memories and in creating the capsule that will hold them.  

Here is your family’s assignment:
  1. Have your child bring in a wrapped shoebox to school by Friday, June  2nd. Please wrap the lid and the box separately so that I can place additional items in the box. A large one would be nice because it will hold more. However, any shoebox will do. (I will have a picture of an example on the blog.
  2. Contribute items to place into your child’s time capsule (some ideas are listed below). Your contributions to this project will determine the quality of your child’s capsule. You need to send in items before the time capsule is sealed.
Sample ideas:
    • Sealed letters to your child from you, grandparents, siblings, or significant others in your child’s life.
    • A favorite project made during the kindergarten school year.
    • Newspaper clippings and/or ticket stubs from movies or sporting events.
    • A small toy that indicates what was popular during the school year. Please make sure your child understands that he/she will not be getting the toy back for 12 years. We don’t want any tears!
    • Anything else that serves as a reminder of your child’s year as a kindergartener. Be creative!

We will be sealing the time capsule in school June 9th. You may continue to send in items for the time capsule until that time. Then, after our end of year classroom presentation, the children will bring their capsules home. So be on the lookout for a safe place to store it for quite a few years!

I believe this project can be quite meaningful to your child and would appreciate your support and cooperation in making it successful.

Thank you, Mrs. Lyons
