Hey, Woodbury Artists, PTA Reflections needs you!

PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate and explore the arts based on the 2017-2018 theme: "Within Reach".  Please submit all artwork to the front office by Wednesday, October 25th, the final submission date.

Please find the entry form here





All students attending Woodbury are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

  • Dance/choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film production
  • Music composition
  • Visual art
Grade Divisions — Students may enter in the appropriate division for their grade:
  • Primary: Preschool-Grade 2
  • Intermediate: Grades 3-5
  • Middle School: Grades 6-8
  • High School: Grades 9-12
  • Special Artist: All grades welcome
Entry Requirements:
(All participants must also follow Arts Category and Division Rules) — Only new pieces of artwork inspired by the theme may be submitted. Each entry must be the original work of one student only. An adult may not alter the creative integrity of a student’s work. Because the program is designed to encourage and recognize each student’s individual creativity, help from an adult or collaboration with other students is not allowed except in the Special Artist Division. Only one student may be recognized as the award recipient for each entry. Other individuals may appear in or perform a student’s work, but the work itself must be the creative product of one student only. See the specific Arts Category Rules for details. Each entry must contain a title and all entries must include an artist statement. The artist statement communicates what inspired the work, how it relates to the theme, and the content of the work. The statement must include a minimum of 10 words, but may not exceed 100 words. Use of copyrighted material is prohibited, except for recorded music in dance choreography and film production entries. Plagiarized entries will be disqualified. Use of PowerPoint presentations are prohibited because most graphic elements are copyrighted.

We love our volunteers!

Woodbury Elementary is fortunate to have so many fantastic volunteers that help out on campus. Please remember that you must sign in with the office each and every time you are going to be on campus.

Every volunteer will need to have their ID scanned in the office before they are allowed to be on campus as a volunteer or visitor.

Per the office: It is important to remember that no one will be allowed to visit our campus during school hours or volunteer in any capacity unless they have submitted their ID to our office staff and been approved. Raptor only scans the visitor's name, date of birth, and photo for comparison with the county, state, and national database of registered sex offenders.Therefore, no other information on the ID is scanned by the Raptor system and no information is shared with any outside agency.
Thank you so much for your help in this and for making Woodbury such a great place for our students.
