The Haldane Class of 2030, currently kindergartners, buried their time capsule on the Haldane campus. Filled with photos and aspirations of each student, self-portraits, and news articles, the capsule will be re-opened just before their high school graduation. The project celebrates the beauty of the Haldane K-12 experience.
