With the purpose of leaving the school and the students’ legacy, senior Emily Carroso started a time capsule that will be opened in 2050.

“The project’s purpose is to create a time capsule that is composed of art, photographs, writing, and symbolic objects,” Carroso said. “When it is opened in 2050, people will be able to see who we were, both as individuals and as a community.”

Students and staff can participate in the project, the time capsule will portray the classes of 2019- 2023.

This project reflects our lives here in West Chicago. It reflects how time will change, and how our community changes,” Carroso said.

According to Carroso, the location where it will be stored has not been determined, but “a teacher will volunteer to be responsible for the time capsule.”

The last day to submit an item is May 10 in the library at the front desk. Clubs or sports submitting artifacts can drop them off in room 206.

“(Items can be) pictures, artwork, and writing about themselves or the school. We want each club, sport, and the department to submit a small object representing themselves,” Carroso said.

If students or staff want to write or draw Carroso suggests some topics.

“(Write or draw about your) favorite high school memory, hopes, dreams, favorite hobby, predictions for 2050, current technology, and advice for future high schoolers,” Carroso said. Carroso hopes the time capsule can represent the entire school community.

“This is the chance to leave behind a legacy and preserve memories. Students are able to submit anything and people will see it in 2050,” Carroso said.

In the future, students will find out about the time capsule on the WCCHS Newsletter and on social media.
