A Gift for Victor and Lucilla
Here at St. John’s we have a tradition of creating gifts to the St. Johns staff to thank them for their work and support during the year. Each classroom works on a gift for a different member of the staff, and this year Brown Room is creating a gift for Victor and Lucilla, our school custodians. In our initial conversations about what kind of gift we should create, there was a lot of discussion about birthdays as children reflected on making gifts during birthday committees.
Eventually we settled on making a bowl or a plate out of clay to put our baked goods on. After talking with Rainey Room, we realized they had made a plate last year, so this year we decided on making a bowl. In order to make the bowl, we rolled out slabs, draped them over existing bowls and stamped our symbols on them so Victor and Lucilla know who made them.
Tomorrow we will glaze and fire the bowls so they're ready to be filled with delicious cookies next week!
