2023-2024 Reflections Theme Announced!
2023-2024 National PTA Reflections Poster

This year's theme for Reflections, the national PTA arts program, has been announced! Your children are invited to create a piece of artwork in one of six categories that reflects this year's theme, "I am Hopeful Because…". They can choreograph a dance, produce a film, write a poem or story, compose a song, take photos, or create a piece of visual art, then explain how it relates to the theme. Our students have been recognized at the local, state, and national level in recent years. This is a great way for your children to earn recognition for their artistic talents. Last year, more than 225 district students participated and were recognized locally, nine received State awards and three received National recognition. Entrees are due by Friday, November 3rd, in the school office. For more information and entry guidelines, visit the PTA Council website here. You can also reach out to Regine Day with any questions at or call/text 773-848-3663.
