Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!
Baranoff PTA is excited about the new school year & we look forward to continuing the support for our wonderful school!
Upcoming & Current Events
The Baranoff PTA invites all our students to submit independently-created art to Reflections!
Reflections is the National PTA's arts recognition program, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Baranoff!
Art entries must relate to the theme, "Look Within," and can be in any of these six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, photography, visual arts, or music composition.
Please also review with your entrant(s) the rules below for the category or categories chosen by your child(ren).
Category Rules for:
Students may make multiple submissions.
Entrants must create their art without assistance. The exception to this is the Special Artist category, which allows for non-artistic 504 and IDEA accommodations to be met. (See the rules for the Special Artist category here in English and here in Spanish.)
There is no entry fee. The only requirement is that someone in the artist's family is a member of Baranoff PTA (just $10 for the year!). You can join the PTA here.
Entries are due November 6th. They must be accompanied by a completed entry form (here in English, here in Spanish), which includes a title and an artist statement, and placed in the labeled box on the bookcase in the lobby. You will find copies of the entry form there, and we will try to keep a stock of envelopes and paper clips and such to prepare the entry as described in the rules, for those students who may need them.
All of the art will be displayed at Baranoff, and students will receive an award and ribbon to recognize their work! Some art will be advanced to the Austin Council of PTAs. Some may go on to the state or national level. But our focus will be on recognizing students on our campus. All of the submitted work will be on display at the school when students walk the stage for their awards at the Reflections Recognition Night on May 7th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
