In November 1976, The Philadelphia School celebrated its move from a few rented rooms at Rodeph Shalom synagogue on Broad Street to its new home at 2501 Lombard Street. To celebrate this major milestone in the school's young, four-year-old history, a time capsule was created, not to be opened until the school's 25th birthday.
Recently some early TPSers began a Facebook conversation about the letters they had written and placed in the time capsule back in the day. We've been having a lot of fun finding their letters and sending them out. Here are some reactions to receiving their time capsule letters after 38 years:
- "This is it! This is fantastic!!!! Thank you!" (Jake Tapper)
- "Thanks so much!!!! I wish we could all get together – that would be fantastic; we were all so close!!" (Jennifer Simons)
- "So great! I have been saying for years that I never learned cursive! [The card was written in beautiful cursive.] Thank you!" (Liz Berman)
- Thank you! I actually remember that I wrote about the farm. Guess I remembered having better writing abilities than I actually had as it seems a teacher wrote mine. Thanks!" (Kathyanne Cohen)
