Two Douglas Dragons won National Awards of Excellence for their artwork in the 2020-21 PTA Reflections program! Congratulations to Annabelle Pate and Jacob Cerveny!!
Both students created artwork that reflected the theme, “I Matter Because …” Annabelle placed in the photography category and Jacob in film production. Their artwork, along with that by other winners across the United States, will be featured in a traveling exhibition.
Check out Jacob’s award-winning video.
This is Annabelle’s award-winning photo project:
Thank you to all Douglas students for entering PTA’s Reflections contest. We hope to see more of your creative artwork in the Reflections program next school year!
Local artist Lewis Wilson has painted this beautiful rendition of our school. With every print and/or ornament sold, Lew Wilson Art will donate 20% back to Douglas!
The ornaments can be personalized with your student’s name and class year. These would be lovely keepsakes for our 5th grade Dragons who are soon to graduate!
