1960 Time Capsule Opened
Selected contents of the 1960 Time Capsule that was found underneath the1959 Cornerstone during recent construction are now on display in the redesigned commons area of the high school. The WSD Historical Archive showcase is located on the north wall just past the entry to the commons area. If interested in coming to see the showcase, please sign in as a visitor in the high school office during normal school hours.
The contents of the showcase include articles, pictures and documents found during the opening of the time capsule. Also included in the capsule, but not on display, were a rolled copy of the yearbook (we have displayed the archive copy and the 50th Anniversary Memory Book, a reel-to-reel recording of graduation, and a very fun to read teacher/student guidebook. There were also numerous articles, class lists, stats from their first Track-O-Rama (an inter-class competition), and programs from Senior Night and Baccalaureate.
The additional documents will be available to view in the historical archive by appointment with the archivist, teacher Erika Sponsler. You can contact her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
