New Mexico PTA Reflections Winners!

In January Reflections entries from around the state filled our office for this year’s theme “Within Reach”! After a second round of judging, 15 talented artists have been chosen to represent New Mexico at the National PTA Reflections contest.

Congratulations to Adobe Acres & Double Eagle PTAs!

On February 28 any PTA that was in compliance was entered into a drawing for $200! Double Eagle PTA was the lucky winner! Also, in February, any compliant unit that submitted five new members was entered into a drawing for free Extra Value Meals from McDonald’s for their Board of Directors. Adobe Acres will be enjoying those coupons!
