Del Mar Hills Academy participated in the PTA Reflections competition this fall, in which students created entries in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. These entries contained each student’s interpretation of the theme of “Believe, Dream, Inspire.” People were recruited from the community who had the talents and interest necessary to judge the student submissions. The results were on display in the school’s Performing Arts Center in November, along with the judge’s comments, and the efforts of the students were celebrated.
