The finale of Stevens Forest Elementary School's 20th anniversary was burying a time capsule on school grounds on June 16.

Students Vikram Misra, Eric Vaught, Ben Boswell and Sharon Berlin explained the significance of the capsule's contents, which included a photograph album depicting the history of the school from planning to opening, a 20th anniversary T-shirt, students' predictions for the year 2012, their personal expectations, several popular toys, plus current magazines.

The second-grade Oak Team assisted Principal Wilbur Payne in burying the capsule. Staff members Margaret Bradley, Lisa Hamby, Barbara Gregory and Jean Proctor helped plan and coordinate the capsule project, which had been initiated by parent Pam Foreman.
