LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Before the La Crosse School District makes history building the new north side elementary school, they uncovered some history.
Staff found a time capsule when demolishing Franklin Elementary.
Inside were old newspapers from 1955 about the construction of Franklin, a teacher's handbook, a science textbook, and a roster of students and some student work.
Before opening the capsule to the public, Superintendent Randy Nelson wants to share the contents with the students who made it, and Franklin Elementary's current 5th grade class and last year's class.
That will take place Sept. 24 at 9 a.m. at Logan Middle School.
"To really meet with this year's fifth graders and really have an opportunity to discuss with them what was in the time capsule; what was happening historically at the time. Give our fifth graders this year, I think, a neat opportunity to understand from a first source," Nelson said."
Anyone involved with making the capsule who wants more information can call (608) 789-8460.
