Congratulations and Thank You to our PTA Reflections entries!
Thank you to all the 26 Challenger students who painted and composed and danced and took photographs for the PTA Reflections program this year! I know that all of Challenger has enjoyed viewing the amazing art entries displayed in the hallway for these last few weeks!
Congratulations to all the artists who have entries moving on to district level competition in January: Anya C., Medha R., Ditika G., Anushka S., David F., Nikita Q., Ishita P., Esther F., Nora A., Joanna T., Shwetha A., and Rishi V. Let's wish them good luck!
And remember that the Reflections program is a yearly event, so we hope to see lots and lots of art covering even MORE walls next year!!
