The Los Angeles Tenth District PTSA wants to thank all the hardworking and dedicated volunteers in making the schools, community and neighborhoods a much better place for all of our children!
This Thanksgiving, California State PTA is giving thanks to the thousands of volunteers and members throughout the state that positively impact the lives of all children and families.
As the nation’s largest and highest profile child-advocacy organization, California State PTA and its volunteers and members connect families and schools and promote the education, health and welfare of all children and youth.
Last year, PTA volunteers contributed more than 13 million hours in their classrooms, schools and communities. Those hours are valued at $332 million in contribution to positively impact the lives of all children and families. PTA volunteers plan field trips, assist in classrooms, promote parent engagement, organize fundraisers, speak up on important children’s issues and take care of the daily needs of the local association and more.
That’s the theme for the 2016-17 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.
Dear Reflections Chairs,
This is it, the week of submission!
Hopefully everyone’s entries are winding their way into your possession and all is going well with signatures and matting, copying, etc.
PTA staff is in the office downtown (1000 Venice Blvd) from 8:30am-3:30pm; I’ll try to be around until noon on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to check in all the entries.
Please see the Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/552123884976915/, for information about a cover sheet for your school that we’ll need listing all kids’ entries by name, entry-type, age-category and entry-title. Thanks.
Please try to plan to stay a while downtown if possible for coffee and to meet other schools’ Reflections committee members and to help check in entries from other schools.
Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions, issues, etc. The Facebook page has a lot of information too.
Looking forward to seeing you and all the artwork!
Los Angeles Tenth District

Interested PTA leaders are encouraged to contact The Music Center to determine eligibility. The funding is limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis so a prompt reply is crucial. For more information, contact (213) 972-4310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
