2019 Reflections Program

"For over 50 years, students have been creating original works of art of their own Reflections expressing their hopes, their feelings, and worlds.

The National PTA Reflections Program welcomes students of all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Students reflect on a theme and create original works of art in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students earn positive recognition for their achievements."

Tammy Dodge Named New Niagara Region PTA Director

Tammy Dodge is a "Lockport lif- er." She grew up there, married her high school sweetheart, Rich, and they are raising their children, Liddy and Trey, in Lockport. 

Professionally, she is the manager of the Lockport Schools Federal Credit Union. 

She discussed her reaction upon being named director. 

“When you volunteer at a PTA event, you don't expect to become an officer, or even think of becoming a Region director! Then you see all the great things that are happening, and want to be a part of it. I have served many roles in PTA including president, vice president and treasurer of multiple units, and have been a chairperson, treasurer and associate director at the Niagara Region level. 

 “Well, here I am, truly honored and proud to be your next Region director for Niagara Region PTA. I have had some great mentors during the years I have been a part of PTA, and I will be getting to know many more quite quickly! 

“I look forward to meeting many of you, and I thank David and the entire Region board for their support and guidance. 

“You will hear a lot from me soon enough, and I thank you for all that you do for our school communities!”
