National PTA Reflections

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

National PTA Reflections 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 world would be a better place if... is the theme for the 2014-2015 school year. This theme by Mercedes Messer of Puyallup, Washington was selected through the Reflections Theme Search Contest. When asked what inspired her theme, Mercedes said, “Our world, because I care about it and wanted to know other kids’ ideas on how we could make it a better place.” Join the search for a future theme by entering the annual Theme Search Contest. 

To start a PTA Reflections program in your school community, contact your state PTA for instructions and materials. The Reflections Toolkit offers additional resources and samples to make your program a success.
