**Urgent: From the PTA President Regarding Reflections**
 
Beverly has a strong tradition of participating in the Reflections contest. We’ve had national award winners, even as recently as last year! I participated in Reflections through the Mansfield ISD when I was a little girl and the program is very special to me. 
 
You may not know that parent volunteers make it possible for our students to submit their work to Reflections. At this time we do not have anyone to help with Reflections. If we do not get at least two parent/grandparent/adult PTA members to volunteer to help by Wednesday, September 11, we will not be able to have Beverly students submit their work to Reflections this year. However, we do plan to have a display and participation awards for students who would still like to create art pieces, even if they are not eligible to submit to the actual Reflections contest. 
 
We realize that parents are busy, and if no one is able to help this year, we hope and anticipate that your children will be able to participate in Reflections through Beverly in future years as volunteers become available and are willing to help facilitate the program.

For an outline of responsibilities for a volunteer Reflections committee, go to https://www.txpta.org/reflections-leader-resources. Last year’s coordinator is also willing to help train you.
 
Thank you for all you do to help make Beverly a great place to learn!
 
Sincerely,
 
Beverly PTA President
