What's Right in the School District of Janesville

What’s Right in the School District of Janesville (SDJ) is a forum to recognize outstanding performances and achievements by SDJ employees, students and schools. 

Nearly 170 people attended the Janesville Area Council - Parent Teacher Association 30th Annual Awards Banquet. The celebration honored JAC-PTA’s outstanding volunteers, teachers, school support staff, businesses and students with a dinner and presentation at the historic Armory, downtown Janesville, on May 23, 2013.

Several School District of Janesville students were also recognized.  Jessica May, Reflections Chairperson, Roosevelt PTA, enlightened the audience with her knowledge of and experience with the National PTA Reflections Program. Jessica explained the PTA believes that all children deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in its annual Reflections Program. The program offers preschool through grade 12 students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition in six areas: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts (which include art forms such as drawing, painting, printmaking, and collage).



Jessica May and Suzanne Guilliom, Reflections Chairperson, Jefferson PTA, then welcomed Reflections Award winners to come forward while Robin Anderson, Roosevelt PTA Treasurer, ran her PowerPoint presentation of the children’s Reflections submissions on the big screen. Eight accomplished artists were present. And the winners are...
