Last month we introduced the National PTA Reflections Program, a national PTA initiative centered around the arts. This year's theme was "I will change the world by..." and students were encouraged to create original artwork including drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, music compositions, dance choreography, and literature.
We are so excited to report that 75 of our students turned in Reflections art entries this year! What an incredible turnout! Great job whales, and a huge thank you to Ms. Marisol for opening the art studio at lunch during the month of September so students could work on their projects.
We have created the first ever R.H. Dana Art Gallery in the multi-purpose room (MPR) and it will be open for viewing this week through Thursday displaying the beautiful art that was submitted for Reflections. Students will be visiting the gallery with their class. So friends and families can view our student's art as well, we also have a gallery below for your viewing pleasure. We hope you enjoy!
