“Look Within”

That’s the theme for the 2019-2020 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.


All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

  • Dance Choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film Production
  • Music Composition
  • Visual Arts.

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.

State-level Outstanding Interpretation honorees receive:

  • Onstage recognition at the California State PTA Annual Convention
  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention Reflections Gallery
  • Prizes including an Outstanding Interpretation plaque, award and certificate

State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:

  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention Reflections Gallery
  • Prizes including an Award of Excellence medallion, award and certificate

State-level Award of Merit honorees receive:

  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention Reflections Gallery
  • Prizes including an Award of Merit medallion and certificate

National-level Outstanding Interpretation honorees are recognized at the National PTA Convention, plus their artwork, along with any National Award of Excellence and Merit winners, are featured in Reflections’ popular traveling national exhibit.


Sinaloa Middle School Deadline to enter is October 15, 2019.


Entry forms and information are available on the PTSA webpage:

We are out the gate and running on our big fundraising effort for the year. We are partnering with Step It Up! to engage students in fun activities while also generating money for our students. Every dollar earned goes to ASB, where students, working with school leadership, help determine what field trips, activities, and new innovations we can bring to the school. Some ideas have included a 7th grade field trip, new, poster-styled digital announcement boards, and supplies and resources for various clubs and student groups! All of this is possible with a strong effort in our fundraising. This year, we have set goals for the whole campus that lead up to and include me, the principal, being taped to the flagpole for morning announcements, riding a small tricycle around campus, and other fun hi-jinx and silliness to reward students and contribute to a welcoming, positive school environment. Please check with your child to see how you can help them and all students achieve with our Step It Up! fundraiser!

On a less fun, but very important note, please do remember to drive cautiously through our parking lot and around our campus on Royal Avenue. Please also do your best to comply with requests from administrative and supervisory staff; by working together, we can keep our parking lot smooth and safe for all before and after school. Note: state law indicates that parking a red zone is not allowed, and it is neither legal nor advisable to stop, much less drop off students, on Royal Avenue. If the front parking lot creates stress or does not work for your family, kindly consider picking up and dropping of students at the northwest and northeast corners of the campus, accessible by the adjacent church parking lot and nearby neighborhood streets, respectively.

As always, please check our website for updates and information about what is happening in our community and at our school! Thank you for being a part of the Saber family!

This Tuesday, our site will be kicking off our annual Sinaloa ASB fundrasier! This fundraiser is easy to participate in and helps us pay for many of the exciting events, field trips, and programs on campus. Leadership and student representatives in our school assembly have a great deal of decision-making power in how these funds are spent, so the more we are able to raise, the more empowered our students will be to bring new programs and events to campus.

Note also this week we will have a structured lockdown on Thursday. This is part of our ongoing effort to maximize student safety on campus. It is important for us to practice our protocols and make sure that our many new students are comfortable with our procedures. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the main office.

We are excited to have basketball and wrestling practice Monday through Thursday this week, and look forward to our first wrestling tournament at Isbell Middle School on Thursday. Basketball games start next week at Valley View Middle School on Wednesday and Thursday.

Thank you as always for being a part of the Saber family! Please reach out with any questions you may have.

Good evening Sinaloa Saber Families!

This is Bradley Torti, Principal of Sinaloa Middle School, reaching out with some reminders and updates as we head into the weeks ahead.

Parking lot safety continues to be a major focus for our community. Please remember to drop off and pick up ONLY in the designated green zone in our parking lot, and do not allow your child to run between cars in traffic. If the parking lot on Royal is unavailable or inconvenient for you, please consider alternate pickup and drop off locations. See the attached map for more information and always, please reach out with questions!

The deadline to sign up for the PSAT is September 12th. This test is a great way for parents and students to figure out what to focus on to make sure they are ready for college at the conclusion of high school. It tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10, in a way that makes sense for middle grades. Contact Sinaloa counseling for more information.

First quarter progress reporting window opens for teachers on Friday, September 6th. Aeries is an important tool for keeping up with your student's progress. Please make sure you have access to and can regularly check Aeries. Check in with your child and be sure to reach out to teachers if you have any questions or concerns as the quarter rolls on. If you have any trouble accessing Aeries, please check our website, our district website, or call or stop into the office for more support.

As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you for being a part of the Saber family!
