TJ Time Capsule Print E-mail
For the past 14 years, students and staff have wondered what is in the TJ Time Capsule as they passed through the Fine Arts Hallway.
Do you know what is inside?  Do you have any ideas?  We'll be asking students for their ideas soon.  Watch this space for their predictions.
We'll be opening the time capsule on April 13, 2015 at 9:45am in celebration of Thomas Jefferson's birthday!
What should be put back into the capsule for the next generation of TJ students?  Let your teacher know your ideas.
