Reflections Art Competition

Dear Alderwood Students and Families,
It’s that time of year again, and the PTA Reflections Art Program is underway for the 2018-2019 school year.  For those not familiar, Reflections is a great way for students to engage the arts with their education by exploring their talents and expressing their creativity in 6 different art categories.  Each year, students in Pre-K through Grade 12 are recognized for bringing the program theme to life through dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts. The theme this year is,   “Heroes Around Me”.  Therefore, students are to create work based on this theme.

Guidelines and student entry forms for each art category can be found by CLICKING HERE. Please also review the IUSD PTA website (Reflections tab) for additional important information about submissions by CLICKING HERE.

Please note that a consent form must accompany each entry if a person’s recognizable image or voice is included in the submission.  For the consent form can be found by CLICKING HERE. Please include your student’s teacher’s name and classroom number on the student entry form.

Attached is the promotional flyer with the basic information by CLICKING HERE.  It is important that Alderwood students who participate submit their work with all completed paperwork to the front office. The early submission date is September 21, 2018. The final deadline for submissions at Alderwood is:  Friday, October 12, 2018.

In California, winning entries from our school will be advanced to the Council, then District, then State PTA for judging. Top entries from our state PTA advance to the National PTA for a final round of judging, with the National PTA Reflections winner announced in May 2019.  I will also be available to answer any questions students or parents may have via email:  alderwoodptareflections@gmail.com.

Thanks so much for entering!
