The National PTA Reflections themed art competition kicks off its eighth year at Montgomery with the introduction of this year’s contest theme, Within Reach.
The PTA Reflections program is an annual arts contest available to all students across the country. The contest encourages students to explore their artistic talents and pursue creative expression in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and visual arts. Each year the program challenges students to create art inspired by a specific theme, which is chosen from hundreds of entries from their annual Theme Search competition.
All students at Montgomery are encouraged to participate in the art contest. Works will be divided into two divisions, a primary division for pre-k through second graders, and an intermediate division for third through fifth graders. Qualifying work will be scored in a blind judging event by a panel of local artists. A Reflections Celebration will be to display entries, announce winners, and acknowledge and award all participants.
For more detailed contest information, program rules and to download an entry form go to the MES Reflections Website: https://montgomeryelementaryreflections.shutterfly.com/
Entry deadline dates will be announced later this month. Don’t miss this great opportunity for your child to develop and explore his or her creativity!

Due to CCHS needing to prepare the gym for registration day, we have had to cancel middle school volleyball tryouts on August 3rd. Tryouts will now be on August 1st, 2nd, and 4th from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm in the CCHS gym. We are sorry for the inconvenience but hope that all interested players are able to attend at least two days of tryouts.
The CCHS volleyball coaches will be holding a Middle School Clinic on July 25th, 26th, and 27th from 9 am until 12 pm in the CCHS gym. Cost of this clinic is $125. Registration is open on the Chamblee volleyball website (http://chambleevolleyball.weebly.com).
