Reflections Update

The PTSA would like to apologize to Sean Jenkins (12th grade) for omitting his name from the previous winner’s announcement. He did win at Cambridge and at the North Fulton Council Level for his musical composition. Congratulations Sean!

All the winning entries from the Council Level have gone to the state level and are being judged. This is taking longer than expected since there are both digital and physical entries. The state winner should be announced in April. 

Congratulations again to ALL our Bears who won at the Council Level.
