Orgera Takes Art on the Road(show)

Michael Orgera, a sixth-grader at the middle school, represented the district in Albany last month as part of a special New York State PTA Reflections Art Roadshow. A total of 60 works of art were chosen for this special additional honor of distinction – besides being local, regional and state winners – out of more than 1,100 pieces submitted for the 2016-2017 PTA Reflections contest that were chosen for a special additional honor of distinction.

Orgera, a highly awarded participant in PTA Reflections, is a two-time Suffolk Region Award of Excellence winner as well as a New York State Winner of Excellence, New York State Winner of Merit and 2016 National Reflections Winner.

His artwork was on display in the rotunda of the New York State Department of Education Building until Nov. 2, when it traveled to Niagara Falls for display at the 2017 New York State PTA Convention. He was also honored by the Board of Education at a recent board meeting.
