The first General PTA meeting was very well attended. Thank you to all the numerous parents who joined the executive board at this first meeting of the year! We hope to keep this great turn-out going for the rest of the year!

 

The Eastshore Welcome Back Dance is coming up this Friday, September 16th, 6 to 8 pm!! Join us on the blacktop of our school for a fun evening of community building. Bring a picnic dinner to eat there or eat after the event. Kona Ice will be present to supply dessert for those who’d like to purchase one, and a DJ will keep us entertained with music and some games/activities.

The Dance is themed a 50’s Sock Hop, so come dressed up if you like!!

 

We are just at the halfway point of our pledge goal and are asking everyone who hasn’t contributed, yet, to please consider supporting our school financially!! Any amount is truly appreciated!

Reflections Art Contest

“What Is Your Story?”

“That’s the theme for the 2016-17 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Eastshore Reflections 2016-17 Flyer (1)

 

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

  • Dance/choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film production
  • Music composition
  • Visual arts.

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round. Please review general entry rules.

State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:

  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention
  • Prizes including an Award of Excellence medal, certificate and a $100 savings bond presented on stage at convention
  • An expense-paid trip for the award-winning student and one parent/guardian to convention.”

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the Welcome Coffee! We all enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting several new families!

Don’t forget to join the PTA to get added to our email list and please consider pledging an amount to support our school financially.

We are excited to keep up this energy and are always looking for ways to keep everyone informed. I even went a little “old school” and got out a message board to get everyone’s attention on the first day. The board will be up for a few more Wednesdays till families get the PTA newsletter as part of their PTA membership.

Please feel free to say “hi” to me or any of our board members at drop-off or pick-up time. I hope to see you at the General PTA Meeting on September 8th!
