National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.
Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.
This year the theme is “I am hopeful because …” and the PTA is hopeful to see some strong participation from middle school writers. Due date is November 13. Entries will be collected at the front office or via email email@example.com. Reach out to Kate Vilches for questions. There are state-level prizes and PTA is working on school-level prizes.
