We are honored to celebrate all of the talented school-age artists who participated in this year's PTA Reflections contest, which was themed "Within Reach." Hundreds of entries were submitted in six categories: Visual Arts, Literature, Photography, Music, Dance and Film.
La Cañada Council PTA awarded 24 Outstanding Interpretation (first place) awards to student artists from La Canada Elementary, Paradise Canyon, Palm Crest, LCHS 7/8 and LCHS. Those winning entries were then sent along for judging at the First District level (against artwork from over 140 other PTA units in the greater San Gabriel Valley).
We are very proud to announce that ten La Cañada students won awards at the First District level, with three Outstanding Interpretation (first place) winners moving on to compete at the state PTA level:
- Aditya S. from LCHS 7/8 for Dance (Middle)
- Isabella K. from LCE for Photography (Primary)
- Phoebe L. from LCHS 7/8 for Visual Arts (Middle)
La Cañada Council PTA will be celebrating all of our unit winners at a reception on Wednesday, February 28 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm in the LCUSD Round Board Room. The greater La Cañada community is invited to attend. First District winners will be honored at a ceremony to be held at Baldwin Stocker Elementary School in Arcadia on Saturday, March 3 at 1:00 pm.
We'd also like to extend a huge thank you to Dorothy Chen, La Cañada Council PTA Reflections Chair, as well as the unit chairs at each of our schools, for overseeing this competition.
The Arts are alive and well in La Cañada!
