The surprise in the closet

…so I published this on July 30th as a ‘page’ by mistake… trying to get used to wordpress… “I was all like where the heck is my post???!!” So I have to delete the page and repost as an actual blog post. Womp Womp.

I went to school today. It’s still summer break, but I am moving classrooms to the basement classroom and the movers came today. The basement classroom was the old classroom YEARS ago. This is the second year the school has had art in about 11-15 years. I can’t seem to get a real number, so it is somewhere around there…Anyway, I went to help move and start straightening out the room and whatever and whatnot… The room has been a Pre-K room for the last 15 years or so (again, not sure on numbers), and I was not able to peek around in the room before moving because I did not want to step on any toes as the Pre-K teacher also had to change rooms. I didn’t want to get in her way…blah blah blah…

Soooooo, today I go in the room…

It’s great. Nice size. Has a bathroom and AC! Didn’t have that before. (BTW- Carpets and play kitchen island are not mine.)

So you see that brown door in the first pic?? That is a huge storage closet…in all my excitement I didn’t take a photo of the actual closet… but guess what is in that closet??? That not even my principal knew about, nor the building engineer…

That my friends, is some kind of old kiln that I know nothing about!!!!! That boss mover man pointed it out. A kiln! Shut the front door! A kiln. So, what kind is it? How do I use it?

It is ventilated to the outside. It is in a separate room. It is all set up and ready to go with the wiring, just gotta make sure it works. (I have another art teacher friend who I am pretty sure can help with that.) Sorry the picture does not give more info. The teacher had it hidden between two storage cabinets, that I can’t move until all her stuff is out of the closet. So, yeah. If anyone out there is reading this. Help a gal out will ya?? 😀

I’m so excited. I gotta get these kids some clay. Now to write a DonorsChoose for that!!!
