Lianna Zakharian, past PTA president, announced that the membership drive has been phenomenal.
“We have already met our goals, exceeding the number of members from last year,” she said.
The Reflections art contest started with Family Arts Night in the cafeteria. What began a few years ago as a creative idea has blossomed into an annual activity anticipated by students and parents. Zakharian reports more than 80 students and parents participated. Lots of smiles were on hand, and there are plenty of submissions to the Reflections contest.
