The Cuero Record
John C. French Elementary School in Cuero will have their annual field day on Friday, April 15. As part of the field day events, the school will open a time capsule from 1986 at 1 p.m.
The Parent/Teacher Organization will be selling lunch plated for $4 which includes a sausage wrap, chips, a cookie and a drink.
Denzil McMurrey was the principal at John C. French at the time. Former superintendent Mr. Welch approved the project.
“That’s been a long time ago,” McMurrey said.
He still remembered exactly where the capsule is buried which is on the northwest corner of the school in the playground.
Initially, the plan was to have the capsule buried for 50 years, but with the new John C. French campus opening this fall plans were changed.
