The Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students sponsored by The National PTA and offers students the opportunity to create works of art outside of school projects for fun and recognition. It's also a great thing to have for a college resume.

 

Winners selected from each school go on to compete at the district/regional and state levels, with the best-of-the-best going on to the national level.  All participants will be honored at the end of the year awards banquet.

The 2014-2015 theme is "The world would be a better place if ..."

Students are encouraged to submit original works of art in the following areas: 
  • dance choreography
  • film production
  • literature
  • musical composition

The deadline to submit entries to the College Park main office is Fri., Oct. 31. Only original works are accepted.


For more information, rules for each category and student entry forms, go to the Reflections Program website. Rules and entry forms are under "More Information" tab to the right of the page. If you have any questions or need more information, please email Brenda Calabro-Collins

Make an "Appointment with Death"
 
Appt with Death.jpgCollege Park Drama presents Agatha Christie's "Appointment with Death" in November. Our newly upgraded multi-use room offers better seating and acoustics! Support the performing arts and enjoy this show, directed by CP parent Chrissey McCooey.

The play runs for five performances: November 1, 6, 7, and 8 at 7:00pm and Nov. 5 at 4:00pm. Tickets are $5/students and staff, $8/seniors, and $10/general admission. Group discounts are available. For more information, call Joan Lopate at 925-682-7670 x 3245, or email lopatej@mdusd.org.
 
In "Appointment with Death," Mrs. Boynton is the tyrannical stepmother who rules her adult children with an iron hand. When she turns up dead, all the characters in and around her family fall under suspicion. Set in Jerusalem and Jordan in 1945, this mystery introduces an ensemble of quirky, international characters and delves into mental illness, colonialism and the dysfunctional family.

Grad Nite equipment donations needed
 
Grad Nite is in need of 2 tower lights with diesel generators and about 400 feet of 6-foot temporary fencing to be used at the Centre Concord for the week-long Grad Nite events.

If you own or work for a company that would like to donate these items or offer at a discount for the Grad Nite week, please call Denise Getty at 925-352-6827.

Please think  about what you might be able to donate or let us borrow; other than the items above we need construction materials & tools, food distribution, prize donations and much more. 

If you think you might have something we could use, call or email denise.getty@nordsonmarch.com and let's discuss it.

School garden coordinator wanted
 
One of the great resources on the College Park campus is our PTSA-funded organic garden, located near the southeast corner of campus. We are looking for one or more parents to be our garden coordinator this year. The coordinator oversees planting and general care of the garden during the school year and also coordinates with the staff for student participation. Produce from the garden (it's delicious!) is used on campus.
 
If you have a green thumb, this might be the job for you!  We currently have two parent alums who maintain the garden, but we would really like to transition this to current parents.  All the clearing-out and weeding has already been done for this year, so the garden is ready to go.
 
This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for two or more parents to share.  If you are interested or would like more information, please email Matt Lovett or Lesley Stiles.
Today: 10/30/14
