Grady Elementary had two students that received awards at the PTA Reflections county competition! The theme this year was "Within Reach" and these two students created amazing art that will move on to compete in the PTA State Reflections competition. Roselana Hermoso in 5th grade received an Award of Excellence trophy and Marina Agazzi earned a ribbon for Runner-Up. Congratulations tigers! For more information about the program, please see Reflections Art Program and click on Reflections photos for pictures of the 2017 art work and awards ceremony.
