OSTC-NW Time Capsule Found 

While searching the OSTC-NW campus Dean, Dave Wyatt came across what seemed to be an ordinary blue barrell tucked away in the back corner of a storage closet. 

After further inspection he realized that what he actually found was an OSTC-NW treasure. Adhered to the blue barrel was a sign indicating that it was a time capsule filled with artifacts over a 25-year span. The barrel originated in 1971 and was eventually sealed in 1996. Set to be opened in 2021, the unveiling was delayed due to the pandemic, however a celebratory opening ceremony has been scheduled.

"We may have found it little bit late, but we'll have a celebratory opening ceremony Thursday, March 3, from 2-3 p.m. at our after-school staff meeting," said Wyatt.

Keep an eye on the Oakland Schools' social media channels as we plan to share what artifacts spanning from 25-50 years ago are in the blue barrel time capsule.
