News from the WES PTA


PTA Reflections Art Program “I WILL CHANGE THE WORLD BY…”


This program recognizes outstanding student works in six art areas: Literature, Music, Photography, Film, Dance, Visual Arts 2D/3D.  All art and submission forms must be turned in by October 12 and placed in the Main Office.  Remember to follow all rules and presentation guidelines and submit a separate entry form for each piece of art. 


Students may enter as many pieces as they would like in one or all art categories.  Students will need a student entry form for EVERY piece they submit for judging.  Make sure to read the Rules and complete the Student Entry Form including signatures, title, artist statement, and art questions.  Signatures on the form are REQUIRED.  Access rules and submission form here. Copies of entry forms available in the Main Office.    

Our school’s winning pieces will advance to the county level, county winners will advance to state, and state winners will advance to nationals!  Our school will host a Reflections Celebration later in the school year.  Our PTA and school staff is excited to see the wonderful creations our super talented students submit this year!  Questions:  Email Stephanie Molner or talk to Ms. McConnell.
