To this end we are truly grateful. We would also like to thank the many volunteers for the countless hours they have labored to make this evening a smashing success.

Class

used to create this lovely cross with the St. Clare Logo embedded in the center. Created by: Mrs. Mixon’s PreK-4 Class
12. Let the Children Come to Me—Wooden cross with children’s fingerprints
creating the “children” displayed on the cross. Created by: Mrs. Scotka’s PreK4 Class
13. Sacred Heart of Jesus—Large cross with raised wood and beading placed
by the children. Created by: Mrs. Panzarella’s Kindergarten Class
14. South Rose Cross—Lovely wooden cross embellished with glass beads and a
stained glass effect. Students placed all the beads themselves and then
prayed over the project. Created by: Mrs. Samperi’s Kindergarten Class
15. All the Different Little Pieces—The children chose special trinkets to represent something about themselves, to be attached to this lovely cross. The
spacing in-between was filled with glass beads. Created by: Ms. Griffin’s
First Grade Class
16. Waves of Grace—Mrs. Clementi’s Second Grade class has artfully placed a
variety of glass bobbles around an iron cross. The scroll work on the cross lent
itself well to a design of gold and silver tones. The students then painted the
wooden base with a faux antique finish. Mrs. Clementi finished the cross with
a mosaic grout and sand mixture and mosaic grout sealant. We’re confident
the warm tones and textures of this cross will enhance any wall. Happy bidding! Created by: Mrs. Clementi’s Second Grade Class
17. Waves of Grace #2—The Extended Day Program students have worked with
Mrs. Clementi to complete a second gold and silver toned cross. This cross has
a more rustic design, but is again grouted with a mosaic plaster and sand
mixture. The students have painted the edges in a warm brown color. The
cross was then sealed with grout sealant. Many hands have worked together
to bring this beautiful cross to you. Enjoy! Created by: St. Clare Extended
Day Class

pearls, and other jewel tone beads. Each student was given a bead to pray
over for the entire month of September. A copy of this prayer is attached to
the back of the cross. Created by: Mrs. Janson’s Third Grade Class
20. Rustic Pride - The students created a lovely rustic, wooden American Flag.
The children decorated the handmade frame with gems and individually
painted each of the 50 stars. The flag is made from old fence post wood. This
piece is signed by every child on the back of the frame. A beautiful addition
to any home. Created by: Mr. Caro’s Fourth Grade Class
21. Stations of the Cross - With thought, love, and time, the students designed
a beautiful cross with all of the Stations of the Cross within the main section. Students have written about the stations on the back, in an effort to
help teach about each station’s story. Beautiful beads were carefully picked
and placed around the outer edges, and the cross was painted in effort to emphasize the beauty of this piece. Every part of their cross was created and
completed with love and joy for Him! Created by: Mrs. Wostal’s Fifth Grade
Class
22. Ichthys—The students decorated a beautiful, hand-made, father fish. Each
student participated in creating a thoughtful prayer that has been placed on
the back of this unique piece. The students’ prayer is one requesting that the
Lord give them strength and courage each day, much like the strength and
courage it required to spread God’s word in times of the Ichthys. This beautiful creation can be easily hung indoors or outdoors as a reminder of our strong
Christian faith. Created by: Ms. Katsigiannis’ Fifth Grade Class
23. Wind Song—The essence of peace, the nature of serenity, and presence of
tranquility are all experienced in this one of a kind wind chime treasure. The

faith. Each student carefully helped place the beads to form a very peaceful
wall hanging. Created by: Mrs. Parrish’s Seventh Grade Class
25. St. Clare Memory Cross—This beautiful St. Clare cross was hand tiled by
our Eighth grade class. Each student participated in the arranging and gluing of the tiles. On the back of the cross, each student shared a favorite

be etched in our hearts. Created by: Mrs. Morales’ Eighth Grade Class
