HI. I can’t talk – Laryngitis!!  :P

"MY Bad" IS NOT OKAY. it's like saying you have no responsibility. Please acknowledge that you did something wrong by saying, I'm sorry, I won't do it again."

Don't leave stuff out on the table.
Remember we are nearly out of glazes.
Pick up your stuff from the art show. Some is still in the cases we will need some people to pick up the rest of the stuff.... probably fifth period after lunch.

(I came in on Saturday to run the kilns so…)

Bisque is done – next bisque – if it goes in today will be out on Thursday and then one in on Thursday and out on Monday. Remember we have no actual classes on Friday. Wildcat Blast.

Glaze is done. If there are projects I will run the kiln every afternoon.

Senior Packets due the ninth. Work/Clean-up tickets start Tomorrow. They must be initialed by me for credit. You can see them under documents or click here

Presentations start next week. Make sure your final draft is on line NOW (60 points) and your gallery is ready.

               MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLOSING THE LAP TOPS DOWN CORRECTLY. DON’T JUST TURN THEM OFF. THIS IS WHAT MAKES THEM GLITCH UP. IT LOCKS UP THE SOFT-WARE.

 
Bisque out today I will run another bisque if we have the stuff - otherwise over the week end.

Glaze out tomorrow - there was not enough stuff yesterday - will run it this afternoon.

Make good use of your time - there is not much left. Some of you will be missing class on Thursday for Senior Tea - but Friday is your last day of wet clay.

I will be here after school until three today and tomorrow - but now Friday - Teachers have meetings.

PLAN to finish on time - no exceptions!!!

 
Your projects are still in the wildcat case - they will be out next week.

Very few days for wet clay left! Make full use of your time.

Glaze kiln is done.

Bisque goes in today - out on Monday.

 
Please, please. please make sure you are up to date on your work...

Zeros have been entered for all projects that are due. You can still turn them in if they were due after the mid-quarter for full credit. Projects from before the mid-quarter will be graded as late work.

See me if you have already turned in a vase - issues with skyward... remember your 'notes' with grades are your half of keeping grades accurate. Grading in this class is a partnership.

Advanced students - please make sure your rough draft is ready for peer editing tomorrow. 
 
DON'T PUT GOOD CLAY IN THE TALL BUCKETS!

WHAT GOES IN THE MIXER? - CLAY FROM THE WHEEL, OR ANYWHERE ELSE, THAT DIDN'T MAKE A PROJECT BUT IS STILL OKAY - EITHER A LITTLE TOO SOFT OR A LITTLE TOO DRY WILL BE OKAY - IT WILL MIX.

What is not okay is clay from footing - those small shards of clay never mix in!

WE NEED TO RECYCLE AS MUCH CLAY AS POSSIBLE BY THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR - also make sure you are taking home your projects and keeping your locker clean.
 
The Kiln heated up too fast and a number of projects broke in the heat...

It was my fault for programing in 24 instead of 24:00 ... Of course if you have notes you can get the project excused, as always... we can fix some of the projects and a number of them survived. 

Advanced students - many of you did not do the outline despite the fact it was worth points. There will be no late work accepted for it since we had time in class. The rough drat is due, no exceptions by next Monday, must be on your site in the right place or you will get a zero on it. This is a large part of your grade - do not blow it off. 

You also must blog each week - this week's is due on Friday - last day is next Monday.

disaster in the back - water from the art room....

Again check the ca
 
New clay in the mixer - it will fire light brown.

Use only small amounts of clay, please - we are running out!!!!!!!!

grade all projects that you have today!!!!

Make sure you have put in something for the Festival of the Arts - this is a graded (5 Points) assignment! Write your name on the list when you turn it in and take it to the liberary or put it in the basket here with your tag filled out. 

NO LATE ENTRIES.

Check the calendar!  The end is near
