    OVERVIEW
     
    Give students confidence in their abilities to explore ideas and learn through the arts! Reflections is a national arts contest run by the National PTA. Every year students are asked to "Reflect" on a theme, and then create a piece of art work. Themes are also chosen via a national contest every year. The theme for 2018-19 is "Heroes around Me." Entries can be made in any of the six categories:
    • Visual Arts (2D & 3D)
    • Photography
    • Music Composition
    • Literature
    • Film Production
    • Dance Choreography
