When Ballston Spa teacher Margaret Morrone retired from Milton Terrace South Elementary School in 2009, she buried a time capsule with the students in her First Grade class. The students are now graduating with the Class of 2020 and recently opened up the time capsule with their former teacher. The former Milton Terrace Elementary School was replaced with the new Gordon Creek Elementary School in recent years and the time capsule was retrieved during the construction project.
Parents, families and interested community members were invited to come observe the opening of the time capsule and discover what the students included in it. Despite some water damage the students were able to read a story they had written about themselves and where they thought they would be after graduation. Several small items were also included in the time capsule including a dated playbill from SPAC, a character toy and coins.
