On April 28, 2023, students from John J. Daly Elementary School gathered to place items in a time capsule in the wall of the new wing of their school. The time capsule is filled with items that represent the students' experiences and interests in 2023, and it will remain sealed until it is opened in fifty years.
The time capsule ceremony was a special event for the school as students from each grade level contributed drawings, letters, photographs, and other mementos that capture the spirit of Daly Elementary School. "We are thrilled to be commemorating this addition with a time capsule today," said Lucia Laguarda, Principal of John J. Daly Elementary School. "This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to leave a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy."
The time capsule was placed in the wall in a special ceremony attended by students, teachers, district administration, and members of the Board of Education. Fifth-grade students in Mr. Mason’s chorus sang the National Anthem and “What a Wonderful World.” After a brief presentation by two pre-K students who contributed to the time capsule, the capsule was placed into the wall of the new wing of the school, where it will remain for fifty years.
John J. Daly Elementary School is proud to have a new wing that will provide students with state-of-the-art facilities for years to come. The new wing at Daly Elementary School is scheduled to open in the 2023-2024 school year.
