Pictured are the McClellan Elementary School students recognized at the WJHSD March Board meeting.

McClellan Elementary’s theme for the 2023-24 PTA Reflections contest was, “I am Hopeful Because…” The K-2 students submitted an artist statement and their creations in two categories, Photography and 2D Visual Arts. Nolan Confair was awarded first place in Photography for his photo titled, “Endless Possibilities.” Anna Hoover (second place, “Autumn Trees”) and Brooklyn Miller (third place, “Animals Give People Hope”) also were recognized for the photos they took and submitted.

In the 2D Visual Arts category, Brooklyn Miller’s submission, “Stay Positive and Be Hopeful,” was selected the winner. Lara Ochadlick’s entry, “Rainbow Fish Shine” earned second place and Macie Ochadlick’s “Flower Shine” was awarded third place. 

Also recognized in 2D Visual Arts were: Zoey Morgans, Anna Hoover, Abigail Pulkowski, Luke Henkel, Adelaide Taylor, Mackenzie Pulkowski and Emma Beckstrom. 

National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

Thomas Jefferson High School representatives Aaron Brody Evans and Zoe Krizan provided the Board with an update on some of the activities, achievements and upcoming events at the high school.
