"What Is Your Story?"
That's the theme for the 2016-17 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969.
Reflections encourage students of all ages to unleash their creative talents, express themselves through artwork, experience the fun and joy of making art, tap into critical-thinking skills, and receive positive recognition for their artwork.
Thousands of students will reflect on the theme and create original works of art in the following categories:

Measure I1 is a measure that will be on the ballot this November, to provide critical funds for modernizing classrooms and labs our students need to keep up with the growing demand for science, technology, engineering, arts and math education. Measure I1 provides a dedicated source of local funding to expand science labs, computers, and other learning technology so that all students are prepared for success in college and 21st-century jobs.
Passing Measure I1 requires a community-based, volunteer effort. Making this effort now will make more of a difference for our children's education in Pleasanton than nearly anything else you can do. Get the word out, so all our children can say "I Won" ;-)
