The Fine Arts Department, with the generous support of the PTSO, invited any teacher from Newton North to bring his/her class to Ceramics on April 4 and April 6 to make gifts for veterans. PTSO funds were used to purchase clay, extra tools, and glaze to make this project possible. Art teachers taught participants how to make and decorate bowls, cups, and wall hangings to be presented to veterans on Memorial Day.
Each participant in the Memorial Day presentation that happens here at North will be given a handmade piece. Students and teachers will also be encouraged to come to Ceramics anytime during the third week of May to pick up a piece to give to a veteran whom they know.
