2017-18 Reflections


Be part of the PTA’s Reflections Program! Entries from all grades and all abilities welcome.


The theme this year is…


‘Within Reach’


The PTA provides the following tools to help make participation in this National PTA and WSPTA Cultural Arts Competition fun and easy for students and parents alike.  



The form for signing up will be available in the library for parents to pick up and children who are interested will also be able to take a form home after the Creative Workshop.  


Creative Workshop:

Students will have the opportunity to explore ideas about this year’s program theme, ‘Within Reach’ with the one and only Mr. Brown during their classroom Library time. There will be a worksheet available for their use to support them in organizing their thoughts and exploring ways they might express themselves.  If you would like to assist in your child’s class during library time, please let me (see email address below) or Mr. Brown know.


Materials Packets

This year the PTA is providing only the Rules and Artist Card to participants.  The PTA will also provide assistance readying those projects (mounting artwork, filling out forms, etc.) moving on to the City level of the competition.  As always if any child needs financial assistance with materials, please contact me (see email address below).


Key Dates:

Sign-up forms should be returned to the library.  The Rules for your child’s category of choice and an Artist Card will be available to be picked up from the library at that time. Final artwork will be submitted to the library.
