Marguerite Vann student Henry Bowen placed a time capsule into the ground outside of Mona Lea’s class on Thursday. The students got the idea after reading "Sept. 12," a story written by first-graders from Kennett, Mo., describing their feelings following the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
