Students at Sagamore Middle School have contributed to a time capsule that has been buried outside the building and contains artifacts from the “COVID times.” Social studies teacher Nancy Smith came up with the idea after she and her students realized that we are living through a historical time period that would be studied by students in the future.

Ms. Smith began to collect student work, including drawings, stories, poems and letters, at the end of the school year in 2020 about how students felt during the start of the pandemic. Other social studies teachers in the building also collected student work through the end of the 2021 school year. Additionally, two winners of a poetry contest had their submissions placed in the time capsule, which were read during the ceremony at the time it was buried.

One of Sagamore’s tech teachers, Tom McGrath, is creating a sign to be placed where the time capsule is buried. The time capsule will be opened in 25 years – 2047.

Seventh grade students at Sagamore Middle School recently have been exploring the life cycle of quail as part of a study that included an incubator holding eggs in the school’s library.

Over several weeks the eggs were held in the incubator for students to view before they hatched following spring break. The young chicks were then returned to Center for Environmental Education and Discovery to be released in the wild on Long Island.
