In its 50th year, PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program that encourages artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate.

Mr. George Eckert

This year’s Reflections theme was “Heroes Around Me,” and challenged students to find their own heroes thru arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.

Students’ work is reviewed by experienced arts & education volunteer. Entries are judged on interpretation, creativity, and technique. Several students also placed at Region and State levels. Congratulations to the 2018/2019 PTA Reflections Winners.
