Sachem Students Turns Back the Clock 30 Years

Merrimac Elementary School students in Holbrook recently opened a time capsule left by students 30 years ago.

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.
