Winners Announced in Superintendent’s Holiday Greeting Card Contest!

On behalf of Jackie Coleman, Senior Executive Advisor for the Arts, we are thrilled to report that students from 12 schools submitted  student artwork for this year’s Superintendent’s Holiday Greeting Card contest!  Out of the 210 excellent submissions 10 were selected for this year’s collection of holiday cards.  The selection represents a variety of grade levels and schools throughout the district.  This year’s winning students by school are:

America’s Choice at SAND – Angelica Nunez (Grade 7)

Annie Fisher STEM – Summer-Sky Binns (Grade 4)

Breakthrough Magnet – Diamond Garcia (Grade 7)

Breakthrough Magnet – Jelisa Resto (Grade 6)

Classical Magnet – Destiny Lucre (Grade 6)

Global Communications – Richard Kollie (Grade 8)

Noah Webster – Savannah Soto (Grade 4)

Parkville Elementary – Jennifer Ruiz (Grade 5)

Renzulli – Chadd James (Grade 8)

Sanchez Elementary – Angel Bonilla (Grade 1)

Each of these schools will receive 10 copies of the holiday cards depicting their student’s artwork. 

It was so difficult selecting from such an amazing array of artwork so we decided to photograph each one and are creating a slideshow of ALL of the submitted pieces to put on display at the Welcome Center at the beginning of December.

Each school that submitted artwork will have the original pieces returned soon.  Thank you all for the amazing work you are doing with your students!  We cannot express enough what an amazing turnout we had this year.

Please feel free to share the results of the Superintendent’s Holiday Greeting Card contest with your students and your school communities.
