Reflections Art Show

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

The PTA Reflections Art Contest is a national contest inspiring students to create original pieces of art in 6 possible categories. The art pieces are judged at each school site based on several criteria provided by the National PTA Reflections Board. Art pieces that advance from the school site, in our case Eastshore, are then moved on to the district level (IUSD). At Eastshore judging took place over the last 2 weeks and we held a small art show last week (10-26). Here is a compilation of all the art pieces that were submitted to Eastshore’s PTA:

As you can see from the chart, it is heating up to be a very close race in both the lower and upper grades.  If you still want to pledge, please turn in your pledge envelopes to your teacher or at the front office.  Pledges can still be made on-line. Again, our goal is 100% class participation, and no amount is too small to donate.  Also, you can still join the PTA for $10, and receive money saving coupons to Legoland, Aquarium of the Pacific, The Discovery Cube, and much more.  We look forward to announcing the class winners by the end of this week.       

As a reminder, we will be having our next General PTA Meeting this Thursday, October 6 @ 6:30pm in the MPR.  Please come and pick up your PTA membership card and envelopes with exclusive membership coupons.

Sincerely,
