The Fulton High School Class of 2013 has been counting down the days until graduation ceremonies begin in May, but now they have a new date to look forward to.

In a surprise announcement Tuesday, the seniors learned theirs will be the first class to bury a time capsule on the campus, filled with personal items, letters, notes and other memories, to be dug up at their 20-year reunion in 2033.

The seniors and subsequent classes will bury their capsule on school grounds - either in the circle drive or near the flag pole - at 6 a.m. Saturday, May 18 to cap off the annual Senior All-Night Party.

"It is going to be pretty fun," said senior Brittany Ledet. "We get to look back at it, open it in 20 years and say "oh god, we were so young, now we're so old.'"
