Thanks again students on your hard work and creativity!!!!  The O A Thorp PTA is proud to support your efforts and congratulates you on your accomplishments.

We hope to see even MORE participants next year at EVERY grade level in ALL the available competition categories (dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts).  

The National PTA has listened to our suggestions and has announced next year’s theme early instead of waiting until the start of the next school year.  The PTA Reflections theme for 2018-2019 is “ The Heroes Around Me”.  Competition applications will be available in August but hopefully you can use some of your summer down time to let your creative juices flow and get your projects completed so there will be no rushing or stress once the craziness of the next school year is upon us. Just click here to review the rules before you begin!

Thanks again to our 2017-2018 competitors and we looked forward to more of our Thorp student body sharing their creative talents for the 2018-2019 “Heroes Around Me” Reflections theme.
