A Lincoln Elementary scholarship assembly was held on May 13 that honored former Lincoln students who were graduating from Crescenta Valley and Clark Magnet high schools. After the assembly, Nicolas James’ former fifth grade student Julia Ha asked James when he would dig up the time capsule that their class had buried in the garden in front of his classroom in 2008. James had forgotten about it until Ha mentioned it in her scholarship speech.

Since the scholarship recipients were the students who had buried the time capsule, James thought it would be appropriate to dig up that piece of history with his former students. After getting a shovel, it took about 25 minutes for the group to locate the capsule. The students retrieved mementos and letters they had written about themselves that they had placed inside over seven years ago. Then the students read the letters they had written when they were in fifth grade while reminiscing about their time at Lincoln.
