Giving PAWS: Each year, the PTSA at Carmel Valley Middle asks the staff to make a “Wish List” of items that they feel will help enhance and expand your child’s educational environment. The list for this year will be posted under download forms. Throughout the year, parents can make a tax-deductible donation or purchase the Wish List items(s) – or both! Monetary donations may be designated to a specific department(s) or nondesignated for the school’s general priorities and programs. A minimum cash donation of $50 is suggested. Parents do not need to be members of the PTSA to Giving PAWS.

The Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students conducted by the National PTA.  The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme, while increasing community awareness on the importance of the arts in education.

Participation in the Reflections Program is a great way for students to explore and learn about various art forms. Creating art is a valuable learning process that challenges students to use their critical thinking skills as well as their creative talents to create art that supports a specific theme.Students may submit an entry in any of the six arts areas listed below. Only original works of art are accepted. The six arts areas are as follows:

  • Literature
  • Musical composition
  • Photography
  • Visual arts
  • Dance Choreography
  • Film/Video Production

Participation in the Reflections Program is organized by school grade. Student works are critiqued against others in the same grade division. This allows recognition and judging of artworks by appropriate developmental age and skill levels.

CVMS is in the Middle/Junior Grade Division. Multiple entries are allowed but each must be newly created for this year’s theme and it must be your original work. Help from adults or collaboration with other students is not allowed.

For more information on Reflections, please check out the California State PTA site.
