Everyone deserves opportunities to explore and be involved in the arts. The National PTA Reflections program is PTA’s cornerstone arts program. It was developed in 1969 by Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork. Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. The theme for PTA’s 2014–15 Reflections Program is “The world would be a better place if…”. Take the time to reflect on the program and start your work of art, entries will be due October 24, 2014 in the HMS main office. For more information contact Craig Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-471-4331. To learn more click HERE (pdf).Order School Pictures Online
