The generous donation brings the department's complement of wheels to four. With larger class sizes in Ceramics, the addition of the wheels makes it possible for students to have meaningful time experiencing the discipline of thrown pottery. Additionally, the Arts and Athletics Council has approved the purchase of a new Skutt brand electronically controlled ceramics kiln to replace an aging unit that is beyond economically reasonable repair.
The Arts and Athletics Council works to raise funds for arts-related and sports-related programs and equipment beyond the district's normal budgetary funding means. Donors can earmark funds for visual arts, music, or athletics. The council is affiliated with the SASD Foundation.
