What Is a PTA Reflections Celebration?
The PTA Reflections Celebration is a powerful tool for encouraging students to explore and be involved in the arts. Together, school leaders and families offer positive reinforcement for participation in the National PTA Reflections program.

 

Parents and community leaders are welcomed into the school to discover the rich culture and artistic skills presented by student artists. An art exhibit with live student performances and an awards ceremony will showcase the importance of arts education in your school.


During the PTA Reflections Celebration, families will:

  • Recognize their child’s participation and achievement in the arts.

  • Discover new opportunities to stay involved in their child’s learning through the arts.

  • Understand how arts programs provide necessary educational benefits and share their positive experiences with school and community leaders.

MORE INFORMATION WILL BE POSTED AS THE PLANNING COMMITTEE PUTS IT TOGETHER. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THE COMMITTEE PLEASE EMAIL US!

  • Creativity: How creative and original the piece is in its conception of the theme and its presentation.
