Urgent Need for Chair, Reflections Art Contest
Are you looking for a way to get involved this year? Marshall PTSA is in urgent need of a volunteer to chair the Reflections Arts Contest!
Chair, Reflections Arts Contest - The contest WILL be held this year, albeit virtually! The Chair leads our effort to participate in this national PTA contest.  Last year one of our Marshall student winners went on to be a finalist at the county level and win 2nd place at the NOVA district level. It's a fun and great way to showcase the talent of our amazing GCM artists!
