At Sato Elementary School, we are fortunate to serve a community that provides abundant and generous support to our staff and students. We are dedicated to providing a rigorous education for each and every child, and to fostering each student's academic growth through art integration. Additionally, we are committed to creating an environment that promotes our kindergarten-fifth grade students through hands-on collaborative opportunities. We are able to utilize the diverse talents and skills of staff and families in the learning process.

This year we would love to introduce and integrate pottery for our students to experience hands-on learning and exploration through creative arts activities. With the use of these tools, students will learn about the pottery creation and firing process, develop skills in design, collaboration, and critical thinking. The pottery supplies will allow students to independently lead their learning by addressing core content targets. students will be assessed on their learning throughout the construction and application process. 


We are asking for $1540.10 to purchase the following materials

185.00 for 500 lbs. of Clay

554.00 for 11 containers (11 gallons) of Glaze

26.00 for 3 Calipers

40.00 for 12 slab mats

18.80 for 10 bud setter tools

The above tools will allow more opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning. Students will design and construct pottery pieces while applying skills in collaboration, teamwork, and problem-solving. The materials will support a deeper understanding of clay materials, mathematics, design, creativity, and science. With the use of these tools, students can take on a more independent and engaged role in their education.
