At the December school board meeting the following middle school art students were honored as part of Medical City Weatherford's holiday art contest. The hospital has partnered with our middle school art classes inviting our students to contribute artwork for their Christmas Card for the past seven years.
Students from Hall and Tison submitted entries and a panel of judges from the hospital selected the winners. This wasn’t an easy task. They literally spent hours in debate because the artwork of our students was so outstanding. Read more by clicking the headline.
