BALLSTON SPA —
The National PTA Reflections Program is designed to enhance arts education for students in preschool through grade 12, encouraging them to create works of art in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography and the visual arts. The theme for 20172018 was Within Reach and student submissions are judged at the school, region, state, and national levels as they advance. Ballston Spa students recognized for their submissions at the regional level in this year’s program include James McIntyre, Nate Hill and Connor Acton from the Gordon Creek Elementary School; Kentaro (Ken) Tan from the Ballston Spa Middle School; and Shoichiro (Shawn) Tan from the Ballston Spa High School. The students were recognized for their achievements at the Ballston Spa PTA Council’s annual Founders’ Day Celebration hosted recently at the Ballston Spa Middle School. Student artwork and projects will be judged at the state PTA level and returned at the Legislative Education Conference in March. Congratulations to all the participants. Please contact the appropriate local school PTA unit for additional information on the Reflections Program or visit www.NYSPTA.org.
