PTA Reflections Ceremony

and Recognition 2022

Congratulations to the talented students who were honored recently at the annual district-wide Reflections ceremony. This year, the special program’s 2022 theme was, ”‘I Will Change the World By…” and was sponsored by our South Huntington Council of PTAs and hosted by Silas Wood. This in person event allowed our parents and community members the opportunity to applaud the outstanding work of our creative children. We were fortunate to award the efforts of our students, appreciate their work on display and end the evening with wonderful dance performances by NYS PTA Reflections Award of Merit recipient, Julianne Meijer, and Suffolk Region PTA Reflections Award of Excellence recipient, Elizabeth Beirne.

We congratulate all of our Reflections participants for their continued creative spark,  and the dedicated parents for fostering a special love of learning in their homes. A special thanks also to our PTA representatives for making this wonderful event possible year after year!
