Calling all Creative Minds! The National PTA Reflections Arts Entries Due Nov. 10!

You have just over three weeks left to celebrate the arts by participating in the National PTA Reflections Arts Program.  This year’s theme is “Within Reach”. Students may submit original works of art in one or more of the following categories: Dance Choreography, Literature, Photography, Film Production, Musical Composition and Visual Arts.   Entries are a two-step process and must include:
1)      Completed student entry form and artist statement – paper version. This and the contest rules can be downloaded from here using this link 
2)      NEW THIS YEAR: A CD that includes a photo of the student entry form and artist statement (just an iphone photo saved to a CD will work) that is labeled with the student’s name, school, title of entry written on the disc. This is a mandatory step and I cannot deliver to the MCCPTA level without a disc containing this information.
Please read the submission rules carefully as each category has different guidelines and they will disqualify entries that are not submitted correctly! Entries and completed submission forms must be submitted by Friday, November 10 to Mrs. Sonia D’Agnese (Art Teacher) Room. Please do not bring art earlier than Monday, November 6.  We are hoping to display the art and submissions at the Principal’s Tea on Tuesday, Nov. 14!
For questions or further information, please contact Greer Bautz, Art Reflections, Chair, CJMS at Finally, please let Greer know if you plan to enter so that she can track entries and have contact information for follow-up.
