Time Capsule

On February 29, 2000 Davis Elementary 2nd grade tucked away a time capsule. It was a cardboard box taped shut with big letters saying "Open in April of 2010" along with a plea to school staff who might find it to not discard it. Inside the time capsule were class pictures and letters from 200 2nd graders. The letters included what the students wanted to be doing in 10 years. So, the time capsule was finally opened (after being located in a boiler room) and some of Uintah High's senior class got to see what it was they thought they'd want to be doing today.

Kaitlynn was in that 2nd grade group, but didn't even remember the time capsule. Since the opening ceremony, the high school has been trying to locate the students to give them their letters.

For those of you who know Kaitlynn, you know she's never been in the band. I don't recall her even mentioning wanting to be in band. I'm thinking she must have written about being an aunt as this letter was written because she became an aunt on February 17, 2000.  What a cutie! Notice her beautiful handwriting. What do you want to be doing in 10 years from now?

Believe it or not, it's almost that time of year.....  the end of the school year, and for some graduation. Kaitlynn will graduate from Uintah High School and the Uintah Basin Applied Technology College later this month. Wednesday night at the Honors and Awards Program she received an academic gold medallion for having a cumulative GPA of 3.888 (which will actually be higher once her concurrent enrollment college grades come in). She also received a Health Sciences Career Pathway Completion Recognition in Pharmacy. As soon as she graduates from high school (a prerequisite), she'll be taking the national exam for pharmacy technicians and applying for her license. Way to go, Kaitlynn!
