Congratulations Reflections Winners!

The National PTA Reflections program is PTA’s cornerstone arts program. The Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork.  

Each year, students in Grades K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.  Students are broken down into Grade Divisions: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8.  Judging first occurs at a local level (judging our school only.)  The top 5 move on to the Regional Level for judging.  The top 3 entries that placed in the Regional Level move on to the State Level for judging and the top entry from each state moves on for National judging  Our Region consists of 5 counties: Berks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia.  West Vincent Elementary started out with 14 entries.  All entries moved on for Regional judging; 7 placed at that level and moved on to States.  (None of our West Vincent participants placed at the State level.)

Book Fair Signup

We can't believe that it's that time of the year already. It's Spring Book Fair 2018. This year, we are supporting summer reading with a BOGO event (buy one, get one at equal or lesser value). Please take a moment to read over the materials sent home with your child. One of the features we are offering this year is what is called "E-Wallet". Follow the directions for log-in provided and register your child for electronic payment. Insert their name and teacher, your credit card information along with the pre-determined amount you are allowing. If there is a remainder at the end of their purchase, it is credited back to your card without any processing fee. We hope this makes it easier for parents. If you have any problems or complications, please do not hesitate to contact the book fair chair, Jamie Williams at jhwilliams918@gmail.com

Most importantly, in order for our book fairs to be a success, we require the help of our West Vincent parents! If you are interested and able to help, please click the provided sign-up genius link for available openings. Included in the information section is a link for you to view the teacher class sign-ups. PLEASE DO NOT make any adjustments or sign-ups in the teacher's link!!!! It is for VIEWING ONLY.  The teacher link is provided so that you can coordinate your volunteer time with your child's visit to the book fair.
