Reflections
It’s Reflections time again!  For those of you new to NSS, Reflections is a National PTA program involving student competition in:
Dance Choreography
Film Production
Literature
Music Composition
Photography
Visual Arts
Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through Art. Students submit their artwork to the school PTA for initial judging. NSS PTA will then submit the first place winning entries for each grade division and arts category to the state office. The CT PTA will then judge these entries and the winners will be sent to the National PTA for the final round of Judging with the awards announced in May.
This year’s theme is: Within Reach. Students reflect on this theme and then create original works of art. This is your child’s chance to express who they are as an individual. Last years entries will be on display in the school.
Here is the Student entry form, the official rules/guidelines, and the CT PTA Reflections website for further information. The deadline for all entries is Friday, January 12, 2018.
Please contact Christine Voytek at chrismere@yahoo.com for further information or questions.

Change of Plan Pads
If a change of plan pad is needed, please send in $3 cash or check payable to NSS PTA, with your child’s name and class. Please allow up to a week to receive a new pad. Thank you!
