SBR: Send a letter to the future to include in KASB time capsule

By Carol Pitts, cpitts@kasb.org

What message would you like to send to a board of education member in the year 2117? KASB is gathering documents and memorabilia to place in the KASB Time Capsule to be opened 100 years from now.

The time capsule was gifted to the association by KASB past presidents and presented at last year’s annual conference as part of KASB’s 100 Years of Service Celebration.

The capsule will be sealed during a short ceremony at the 2018 Annual Conference in December, then transported back to KASB headquarters in Topeka where it will be sealed in an acrylic case and placed in the KASB Museum. A plaque commemorating the retirement of the capsule with an invitation to open the case in 2117 will be included in the display.

The association’s Board of Directors invites KASB member boards of education to submit letters or proclamations for inclusion in the time capsule. These can range from a short letter signed by all board members to a more formal proclamation passed by the board. Individual submissions will also be accepted from board members and district leaders.

All submissions must be received by November 19, 2018 to allow time for printing and preparation for archiving. Members can mail submissions to KASB at 1420 SW Arrowhead Road, Topeka, KS 66604, ATTN Time Capsule or send an electronic copy of the submission to cpitts@kasb.org.
