Hello Redhawks,
We are excited to invite you to submit to our annual Reflections program. PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program that encourages artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. The program was created in 1969 and more than 10 million students have participated since.
The PTA Reflections program welcomes all grades and abilities to explore their creative voice and be involved in the arts.
This year’s theme is “I am hopeful because…”
Students are encouraged to submit work in the six categories; Dance and Choreography, Film production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.
Please refer to the submission form available here on our website under “Reflections” for official rules and terms of participation. Submissions are due October 4th. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
your friendly neighborhood PTA president,
Nahyr Ruiz
I’ve attached the reflections submission form (I would like to encourage people to submit online but I’m also pushing this out to the teachers via Mrs. Yokoyama), and I’ve attached the official flyer as well. Let’s make sure the due date of October 4th is posted in bold everywhere. Oh and I’ve attached the official logo as well to add to our website; I’dd add it maybe under my blurb signature and then I don’t know where else?
I will follow up later with individual icon posts we can do to promote the program on our socials.
This is going to be kind of crazy to pull off with such short notice but its either this or no program at all.
Thank you again for your help! I really really appreciate it!
Nahyr Ruiz
