National PTA Reflections Program

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 theme for the 2015-2016 school year is Let Your Imagination Fly.

Reflections is open to AES students of all artistic abilities in grades PreK-5.

Please submit all entries to the school by Friday, December 4th, 2015.

For 2015-2016 General Participation Rules, please see this link:

Please contact Shannon Pfistner ( if your child has an interest in one of these categories and you will be sent the full rules of participation in that category.
