December, 2014

Elizabeth Page, a 2nd grade student at Concrete Primary School was awarded first place with her art submission for the district Christmas card contest. Her work was selected from among entries from 2nd and 3rd grade student submissions from the eight elementary schools in the district. Elizabeth submitted the winning artwork and was presented with a gift card and a framed copy of her original drawing by Superintendent David Havird and Assistant Superintendent, Jane Harrison, district coordinator for the program. Her artwork is printed on the district Christmas card that is distributed to all employees of District One.

Elizabeth is the daughter of Christopher and Jennifer Page of Powdersville, SC.

Christie Wright, art teacher at Concrete Primary School stated, I am extremely proud of Elizabeth’s accomplishment.  She is dedicated to her art and often decides to spend her recess working on art instead of on the playground.  As a sign of the times, her snowman is equipped with an iPad.  This addition to the snowman’s wardrobe was inspired by the Anderson School District One technology initiative.  Way to go Elizabeth!”

Artwork from Evan Hobby, a student at Cedar Grove Elementary School was selected as the second place winner. Third place winners were Braeley Bryant of Hunt Meadows Elementary School and Kirsten Miller from Wren Elementary School.  They were also presented with a gift card.

David Havird, Anderson One Superintendent said, “We have some extremely talented art students in our district. I am always amazed to see the art they present for the Christmas card. Congratulations to all entries and winners.”

Jane Harrison, Public Information Director, said, “This is an annual event for the district and each year provides a different school level the opportunity to compete for the artwork design of the district Christmas card. It has become a popular competition that rotates from elementary, middle and high.
