Reflections 2023: "I'm Hopeful Because..."
The Twinsburg Council PTA is excited to kick off another year of the National PTA Reflections Program! Children in grades K- 12th grade and Special Artists (Students who identify as having a disability and may receive services under IDEA or ADA: Section 504 may enter in the Special Artist Division or grade division most closely aligned to their functional abilities) may participate by entering an original piece of art inspired by 2023-2024 theme "I Am Hopeful Because…"
The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students. The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme while increasing community awareness of the importance of the arts in education.
Students may submit an entry in any of the six arts areas listed below. Only original works of art are accepted. The six arts areas are as follows:
- Music Composition
- Visual Arts
- Dance Choreography
- Film Production
All student entries must adhere to the following guidelines:
- Each entry must be the original work of one student only.
- A student may create their entry inside or outside of school.
- A student may submit entries in more than one category, but only one entry per category.
- All entries and forms will be submitted electronically.
- Each entry must be accompanied by a completed and signed Google Student Entry Online Form.
- Student entries must include a Title and Artist Statement that communicates their inspiration for the work and how it relates to this year’s theme “I Am Hopeful Because…”
- Entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline of November 17th. Late entries cannot be accepted.
The Google Student Entry Form and Rules are at the following link:
Guidelines can be found through the following link:
The deadline for final, completed projects is Friday, November 17, 2023.
Thank you for your participation!
Nominations for the "T" in PTA and Helping Hands Awards
The Twinsburg Council PTA needs your help!
We have two award opportunities from the Ohio PTA, and we are looking for nominees to honor in our district!
The first is an educator award: The “T” in PTA Award, given to an educator in our district that has supported the PTA mission and has made a positive impact on the lives of our students.
The second is a volunteer award: The Helping Hands Award, given to a volunteer that has been active in the PTA and has gone above and beyond to be a positive influence for our students.
The nomination forms can be found by clicking on the links above. We hope that you will help us by nominating an amazing educator and an awesome parent volunteer in our district so that they can be recognized!
Nominations are due to our PTA units by November 4!
Each of our 4 PTA units will select one nominee from the submissions to represent their school, and one of those four will move on to the State level for the opportunity to be awarded by our Ohio PTA.
We thank you for your participation and look forward to giving our volunteers and educators a chance to be recognized!
A great big thank you to the local businesses and organizations who supported
the Twinsburg Council PTA at the Tiger Tailgate on
Friday, September 22!
Thank you to everyone who attended and also supported the PAWS on Child Hunger
Program with the purchase of 50/50 Raffle Tickets!
PAWS ON CHILD HUNGER
Currently serving over 240 children throughout every corner of our District, the PAWS on Child Hunger program provides weekend food assistance for Wilcox Primary School, Samuel Bissell Elementary School, George D. Dodge Intermediate School and RB Chamberlin Middle School children who qualify. Students receive a bag of nutritious, kid-friendly food items to take home on Friday afternoons during the school year.
We are asking for your generosity and support of this program by donating through either of the links below.
For the TCSD children the PAWS on Child Hunger program supports, the food they receive at school is sometimes their only access to a full balanced meal and programs like these are the only way to get them through the weekend. Please consider donating so that no Tiger Child goes hungry.
