The arts—and National PTA® Reflections—support student success and serve as a valuable tool for engaging families and building strong partnerships in the school community. Founded in 1969, Reflections engages nearly 300,000 students and their families in arts education activities each year by encouraging students to explore the arts for fun and recognition.

Students of all abilities are encouraged to reflect on this year’s theme, “Within Reach…”, and submit works of art in up to 6 areas including:

  • Dance Choreography
  • Film Production
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Musical Composition
  • Visual Arts

Use your time and talent this summer to reflect on the theme. Entries will be collected at Newsome in October 2017. You may also email
