Every year our PTA organizes the annual Reflections Contest for our students which provides students with an opportunity to showcase their creativity in a multitude of formats!  This year’s theme is, “I will change the world by…” and can be expressed through dance, music composition, poetry, literature, visual arts, photography, choreography, or film/video.  Attached are documents outlining the contest with a student entry form.  The deadline for the contest is November 19th.  Please contact Mrs. Neyjovich at allison.neyjovich@elliman.com if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing what our students dream up as they realize that they can change the world!
