CHSN PTSA Reflections Contest – “Within Reach” – Winners advance to the next level

Dear CHSN Arts teachers –

We are pleased to share the results of this year’s PTSA Reflections Arts competition with you.
Our students had a very successful year in the contest.  To put it in scale, you should know that the Central region, comprised of Rockland, Orange and Sullivan counties, can send no more than 14 high school level entries to the NY state contest.  This year, five of those 14 are from our school.  This reflects not only their own talent, but also the thriving arts environment we enjoy, and the support they receive from you.
Please join us in congratulating these students, and accept our congratulations as well.
Sally Daly and Molly Griffin
PTSA Reflections co-Chairs
