Student creations help serve as a fundraiser

Lily Sweet was on of the eighth-graders who helped.

“It was actually really fun being here with them and meeting good Christian children from around the town,” she said. “It was a lot of fun. I love working with little kids.

“The bowls weren’t so easy, but once we all figured it out, it went really well. I’m going to be really glad to have them as a memory.”

Eighth-grader Jahnava Patel also enjoyed the experience.

“It was really nice seeing them and really interacting with them,” Patel said. “I think she glazed them really nicely. They came out really beautiful. It would be amazing to do again.”

Glennon said the project would not have succeeded without the help of potter Robin Griswold-Ott, who volunteered her help.

“The first day, we came with the pottery lady Ms. Robin, who donated a bunch of her time, and Trinity had all of it ready for us to sit down with the kids. It was very encouraging,” Glennon said. “The big girls enjoyed getting out of school, of course, but also working with the little kids. They’re pretty familiar with it from being at Annunciation and working with little kids and it was rewarding for all of us. Ms. Robin had all that set up for us before hand, and they mashed them into the bowls.”
