Roxbury, NJ (January 11, 2017) – Eight students at Kennedy Elementary School have been selected as Morris County Finalists in the annual PTA Reflections Contest.

Thirty-six students from Kennedy School submitted entries in the following categories: Dance Choreography, Literature, Photography, Film Production, and Visual Arts. The eight selected students are now eligible for state awards.

Kennedy’s selected recipients are

  • Kathleen Tusa (Gr 2)

  • Taylor Schauble (Gr 3)

  • Katrinka Sullivan (Gr 3)

  • Ava Weinberg (Gr 4) for Dance Choreography

  • Ella Allert (Gr 2) for Literature

  • Evan Tusa (Gr 4) for Photography

  • Nicholas Blenx (Gr 4) for Film Production

  • Spencer Hills (Gr 1) for Visual Arts.

“Anyone who wins a state award will get to be principal for the day with yours truly sometime in the spring,” said Principal Eric Renfors.

The National PTA organization’s website describes the contest as, “the PTA’s cornerstone arts program, developed in 1969 by Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, The Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork. Each year, students in grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.”
