    Good morning, it has been an unusual year to say the least. Our district like the rest of the world has had to adapt to some unthinkable circumstances. Through it all our Whitesboro Family has been amazing. The use of higher level thinking skills that the arts help to develop have become more prevalent than ever before. This time of year the Scholastics Arts Competition see our students getting awarded for their efforts and talents. Even though there were new challenges because of the pandemic Whitesboro excelled showing our commitment for success. 

    Below is a list of the students that were acknowledged at this year's competition. Our district along with others had a decline in pieces submitted this year. Our department K-12 has been doing an amazing job to help ensure our students are getting the best education that can be provided.  We know we would not be able to do it without all of your help and support especially in these trying times. Thank you to Mr. Cost for all of his hard work and effort with the Scholastics Program. It is the first time judging was done via Zoom. The committee did an amazing job adapting the competition to current circumstances. The Gold Key pieces will now go on to be judged at the National Level. We are very proud of all of our students and look forward to see what they all do in the future.
