The PTA Reflections Program is designed to enhance quality arts education. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create works of art in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts for fun and recognition. The program brings families, school and communities together by supporting student success through the arts.

Started in 1969 by the Colorado PTA President Mary Lou Anderson, Reflections has encouraged millions of students to express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Any PTA in good standing is eligible to sponsor Reflections on their campus.

"Look Within" is the theme for Reflections 2019-2020!!
