DENISON, TX-- Denison Kindergarteners watched High School Seniors dig up boxes of memories.
In the year 2000, the 2012 senior class buried some of their most prized memories in a time capsule and Wednesday morning, it was revealed what they thought was important over a decade ago.
Each Denison school, including high school and middle schools, put items in the time capsule.
"I dug up the one from the high school and we found a baseball hat, a stingerette uniform, there was year books in a lot of them, old school t-shirts, pictures of us when we were little. It was really cool," said, senior, Kailee Gaddis.
"What we are trying to do is to celebrate generations of students and the success they've had. And then monitor the change that has taken place in the school district in a 12 year period," explained Dr. Henry Scott, Denison ISD Superintendent.
"It's definitely special. Because, we got to bring in the Millenium and now we get to take out a whole new generation. It was pretty cool because, like we are the ones who started it and it's going to carry on for a whole lot more years," said, senior, Samantha Stubbs.
Every 12 years, the time capsule will be re-opened, each year they will find items to laugh at and remember.
Two Layne Elementary kindergarten students, Kinley and Aubry, tell us, what they buried.
"A teddy bear and a Layne poster!"
These seniors said they hope the little kids remember this special day, because time will go by fast. Gaddis knows the feeling all too well.
"It sounds like it was a long time ago, but it feels like it was yesterday."
We ask Kinley and Aubry this, "so what happens in 12 years, when you are in high school?" "We are going to dig it up!"
