PTA Reflections

Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts. This is open to ALL students!

Entries are due October 24th in the Cypress Elementary office. Download entry forms and guidelines at the Cypress Elementary PTA website under the Reflections tab.



Join us for ART NIGHT on September 19th following the General PTA Meeting 6:30 pm in the school cafeteria. Explore different ways to use your creative side and have fun!

Questions? Email CypressReflections@gmail.com.

Note to Parents

If you need to pick up your child early for an appointment or other reason, we will call your child to the office once you arrive. We understand that this may be inconvenient. However learning moments occur throughout the day. We want our students to miss as few of those moments as possible. Due to security measures, we must check out all students to adults that we have cleared through our system. Please plan ahead for this practice.
