"Parade of Pigs" For Kids

The "Parade of Pigs" is a fundraiser put on by the Ball Chatham Education Foundation, the Chatham art teachers, and young artists in the Ball Chatham School District. This is the 2nd year we have done the parade of pigs in my school district. It has been a huge success! Each teacher paints, over-glazes, and fires his or her own pig in our brand new kilns. Kilns we did not have last year, but were able to purchase with the funds raised from the Parade of Pigs last year!! Yes....I love my new kiln!

The following was taken from the Ball Elementary website:
"Meet 2013’s Parade of Pigs from Ball Elementary. Our St. Louis Cardinals pig“The Baseball Hog”, was design by Art teacher, Emily Scannura. Levi Vorreyer, 4th grader, designed “The Amazing Pork of Art”. Our pigs will be on display at local sponsors until May 16th . If you see a pig, feel free to donate money. Money raised will be used to upgrade the high school auditorium. On May 17th the pigs will be auctioned off at the Island Bay Yacht Club. Please see any schools home web page or the Ball-Chatham Foundation’s web site for ticket information."

All 20 of our district's pigs were on display and accepting money at this years all district arts show on May 10th.  Guess which pig made the most money....You guessed right!  Miss Scannura's pig, by far.  This can only mean two things, there are either some diehard Cardinals fans or some diehard Miss Scannura fans out there. :) 
Hope to see you at the auction on May 17th!
