2019 Reflections Theme: LOOK WITHIN

It's that time of year again, time to get creative with the ARTS!  It's time for our annual PTA REFLECTIONS program! 2019 Reflections Theme: LOOK WITHIN

  • Why?

National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

  • What?

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts. Each student may submit ONE entry PER category. 

  • How?

Official rules and guidelines are found online at www.PTA.org/Reflections and instructions for each category can be found in our school on the Reflections bulletin board near the office in the East hallway by 6th grade classrooms.
 

  • To Enter?

This year our Region (Nebo) is piloting an online entry system for all categories except Phtography and 2D Art, which can still be turned in to the office!  To enter online, you must: 1- Be logged in to a gmail account2- Scan this QR code to fill out our school's entry/consent form and upload your work.

Sixth Grade Field Trip a Huge Success

Attributions: 

Our sixth graders had a blast on their field trip.  They learned about the different Utah County Enforcement Divisions.  They were taught about the Bomb Squad, Search and Rescue, Fire, Swat and K-9 divisions.  Before heading back to school, they enjoyed a fun picnic at North Park.   We are grateful for all those who work for the county that took time out of their day to teach them so much!
