Middle School Student’s Honored

Congratulations to Hicksville Middle School eighth-grader Pratiksha Malayil, a recipient of the New York State PTA Award of Merit in the 2019 National PTA Reflections program.  

Pratiksha, who is one of only 107 Reflections award winners in the state, is recognized for her entry in the Literature category. She will be recognized at a regional PTA ceremony, and her work will be displayed at the PTA Reflections Art Gallery at the New York PTA Convention in Tarrytown in November. This year’s theme for the PTA Reflections initiative was “Heroes Around Me.”

The National PTA Reflections Program welcomes students of all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Students reflect on a theme and create original works of art based on the theme. In addition to Literature, the program recognizes student works in the categories of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Music Composition, Photography and the Visual Arts.

Pratiksha is pictured being congratulated by English teachers June DiBello and Sara Smith.
