To Learn. To Lead. To Make a Difference.



What is Reflections?
The Ohio PTA, through National PTA, holds an annual cultural arts program, Reflections. Children in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit original works of art in six areas: literature, visual arts, photography, dance choreography, film production and music composition. PTA strongly supports education in the arts. It is about creating educational excitement and involvement within our schools between parents, teachers and our kids.
Theme for 2017-2018: Within Reach
We are proud of the dozens of students across campus who submitted more than 70 entries. Special recognition goes to the13 students whose works received first place honors. These winning entries will be sent to the State Contest in Columbus and first place winners at the state level will then move on to the national competition.

Congratulations to all students who entered this year’s competition!
