The Haldane PTA announced that four Haldane students have been selected to represent the Taconic Region in New York state’s 2013 entries to the national PTA’s Reflections Program.

Ethan Gunther (film production), Emily McDermott (literature), Lucy Austin (literature) and Theodore Bates (photography) each submitted original entries that are among the top in the Taconic Region. These students’ projects will advance for consideration at the state level. They are among 35 advancing entries from the entire Taconic Region.

The Reflections theme for this year was “The Magic of the Moment.” Haldane sixth-grader Theodore Bates interpreted the theme with his photograph Splash, which is one of the entries advancing to the state level.

The program was founded in 1969 by Mary Lou Anderson. For more information, see
