Over 40 pieces of art work submitted by five Turlock schools were on display at MedicAlert Foundation on Friday as part of the Parent Teacher Association’s Reflections Program. Two of the 11 pieces of artwork sent on to the district level of the PTA competition took first place and will now be sent to the state level. The five schools that submitted artwork are Dennis Earl Elementary, Osborn Elementary, Walnut Elementary, Julien Elementary and Crowell Elementary. The two pieces of art competing at the state level were submitted by Kara Dao from Dennis Earl Elementary and Kayla Fernandes from Walnut Elementary. Both pieces are dance choreography. The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition program that allows opportunities for students to express themselves with original works of art. Students can submit art work under six different themes — literature, musical composition, photography, visual arts, dance choreography and film/video production.
