Welcome back to McNeil for the 2018-19 school year! I would like to encourage my students to participate in the RRISD High School and Middle School course catalog design competition for the upcoming school year and/or the PTSA Reflections Contest. Students should contact me ASAP if they are interested in participating in either/both competitions. The details and specifics are listed below.
The McNeil PTSA is once again offering the Reflections Program for 2018-2019. Student entry forms are available at the link below, on our PTSA website and we will offer a few printed ones to the students’ suites. Entry DEADLINE is Oct. 24th (to the suites). If you know a student who would enjoy this program or would like to explore his/her creativity, please encourage him/her to enter.
Reflections has been a staple arts program in many schools for 50 years. Through the efforts of our Local PTAs, millions of students have found a creative outlet in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.
With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.
Started in 1969 by Mary Lou Anderson, then Colorado PTA President, Reflections has grown to be one of the largest nationwide programs of its kind, with more than 200,000 students participating annually.

With a month into the 2018-19 school year, we are beginning to plan the 2019-20 school year with the compilation of the High School and Middle School Course Catalogs. An exciting part of the process is the course catalog cover contest.
Here are the specifics:
I'm Miles Bowen, and this is my website. I am passionate about the visual arts and I am excited to share my work and the work of my students with you!
