Reflections 2015-2016

The arts—and the National PTA Reflections Program—support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in your school community. Celebrate arts learning in your school community with Reflections. This program welcomes all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. 

The theme for the 2015-2016 school year is Let Your Imagination Fly!

SCCPTA hosted a Reflections Program Training on Sept 15. Click HERE for this information.
