REFLECTIONS PROGRAM

2016-2017

Dear Students and Parents,

We are about to begin this years Reflections Program, a cultural arts program of the National PTA.  This program encourages students in grades K-12 to express themselves through the arts and receive positive recognition for their efforts. 

Each year a new theme is chosen that the students can use in a project within six (6) categories: Literature, Photography, Visual Arts, Musical Composition, Dance Choreography, and Film/Video Production.  The entries are broken down into four grade divisions: K-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, and 9th-12th, as well as a non-graded category Special Artist limited to students whose physical, cognitive or mental health challenges meet the guidelines in the American Disabilities Act.  This years theme is: 

What is Your Story...?

I encourage all students to participate and showcase their talents in this program.  The work may be done at home or as a class project in school.

All entries will be picked up from school on Monday, November 14th, 2016.  This is a firm date so we can meet the county PTA deadline.  Winning entries from our school are sent on to the county for the next level of judging.  Once entries reach the state level, the NJ State PTA will select entries to submit to the National PTA, where they will compete for prizes and scholarships. 

Please return the form below by this Friday, October 7th, 2016 if you are interested in receiving more information and a copy of the official rules for your particular category.

Thank you,

Stacey Downey

Dear Parents/Guardians

Due to many near accidents in the parking lot behind the middle school, I will be changing the direction of the entrance and it will become a “one way.”   This lot is for teachers and should not be used as a drop-off or pick up area.  The Roselle Park Police allow drop-offs in the front of the building and that is where it is safe to do so.

Middle school and Robert Gordon students should only be dropped off at the front of the building. If you pick up or drop off at the back, please use the street to park and then walk your student into either building.

This is done for the safety of all and with the approval from the Roselle Park Police and our Superintendent.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Carlin, Principal
