Don’t open until 2036!

ILES time capsule

Indian Lake Elementary School student Crosley Lacher, left, shows fellow third-grader Drake Cosby a favorite toy that she plans to put in her time capsule for a project completed at the school. Students have compiled time capsules with items such as favorite pictures, toys and other objects to open in 20 years. They also penned letters to their “future selves” and made a presentation to their classmates about what they want to remember about their current “selves” and their dreams for the future. Third-grade teacher Pam Scarpella said the idea for the annual project came from the Ohio Community Studies Weekly magazine on social studies. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)

Freeze frame

ILMS Youth Leadership

Indian Lake Middle School Youth Leadership students play the freeze/mime game during a conflict resolution training led by Kelly Tracey from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and Karen Sorreles from the Midwest Regional Educational Service Center. The game gave teams a short time to create a frozen scene to describe a word connected to either peace or war. The aim of the exercise is to highlight the differences between body languageand facial expressions used in coming to a peaceful versus chaotic outcome. ILMS Youth Leadership is made up of 10 seventh-graders and 10 eighth-graders. This is the 17th year this program has been offered to middle school students in Logan County.
