Carter Academy hosts dedication today

At 4 p.m. on May 21, 2002, Carter Academy for the Performing and Visual Arts will host a dedication ceremony for its new marquee.

The dedication will include sinking a time capsule adjacent to the base of the bilingual sign. The fourth-grade “graduating” class took charge of filling the capsule with representative mementos and a projection into their futures with individual essays answering, “What will I be doing in ten years?”
The Carter Academy PTO Board and administrators will have a hand – literally – in the event, as each leaves a handprint in the wet cement interring the capsule for the next ten years. Refreshments and entertainment will follow.

The celebration is hosted by Carter Academy for the Performing and Visual Arts, the PTO and the 21st Century Community Learning Center. Parent and community volunteers will also be recognized and celebrated at the dedication.

Carter Academy is a magnet school in the Aldine Independent School District. It is located at 3111 Fallbrook Drive.
