Students tomorrow will bury homework, photos and other items in a time capsule at Stuart-Hobson Middle School, said outgoing Capitol Hill Cluster School Parent Teacher Association president Vincent Morris. The Capitol Hill Cluster School includes Stuart-Hobson, along with Peabody and Watkins elementary schools.

The capsule, which students are slated to dig up in 2035, commemorates the completion of Stuart-Hobson’s new art wing this school year, in addition to the last day of school.

Besides homework and class photos, the capsule has tickets, playbills, pottery, posters and an old BlackBerry, too, Morris said.

“From what I’ve seen, it’s very common to do time capsules with new construction projects,” Morris said in an email. “In addition, time capsules are just cool as heck and so much fun for future generations to open.”
