Eight years ago, twenty-three fifth graders contributed items to a time capsule. It was set to be opened after their graduation. With many high schools across the county holding commencements in May and June, many of the those same former elementary students walked across stages accepting their diplomas. 

On June 18th, some familar but grown up faces graced Southmont Elementary and met their former fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Tina Williams to reopen a bucket of memories. As students Nathaniel Bruce, Jacob Trogdon and Raley Pope unpacked momentos, many memories from almost a decade were relived.

The three students found fairy tales written as part of a Language Arts assignment, notes from classmates, stretchy bracelets, a calculator, a class picture, an autograph book and a retired math textbook. Students also had the chance to view pictures taken from two field trips and class events as well as watch two Revolutionary War re-enactments written and directed entirely by the students. 

Southmont wishes the best to all of the 2018 graduates across the county but especially to our own alumni!
