Join us for the National PTA Reflections Program and have fun unleashing your inner artist! This year’s theme is “I Matter Because…,”

It calls for your own unique interpretation through the arts. Reflections will be Virtual this year! Students will still create physical works, but only video, photo or document will be turned in for judging. An online entry form will be available soon! Find more information on our PTA Website HERE! All Reflections submissions are due by October 1, 2020.
