The Making of Keeley Elementary

2021 Time capsule

On Friday, January 15, 2021, Keeley Elementary was able to be part of an exciting and unique experience. Hawkeye and Michelle Rodriguez from the radio station, 96.3 KSCS, came out to Keeley to bury a time capsule that will be dug up in 50 years in the year 2071.  Inside the time capsule were items to remind students of this time in their lives. A mask, an iphone, a social distancing sign, an empty vile of a vaccine, and many other memorable items were included. This all happened because Keeley principal, Sheri Taylor, was the right caller who phoned the radio station 96.3 KSCS. Hawkeye was looking for principals who were willing to have a time capsule buried on the grounds at the school. The rest as they say is history.

Through the years Keeley has had many school T-shirts. Cyndie Lubbeck, a former employee of Keeley Elementary, made this wonderful quilt full of history with old Keeley T-shirts.
