PTA is the oldest and largest volunteer association in the United States working exclusively on behalf of children and youth. The PTA is a strong and vocal political body.
It’s mission is threefold:
- To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in school, in the community, and before governmental bodies.
- To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children, and
- To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of the nation.
**PTA Memberships may be purchased for $5 in the school office. This is a simple way you can help fund extra-curricular activities for our students!
For 40 years, the national PTA Reflections Program has encouraged students across the nation and in American schools overseas to explore their artistic talents. The PTA Reflections Program is designed to enhance quality arts education for students in preschool through grade 12, encouraging them to create works of art in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts. Supporting the PTA Reflections Program is one way you can encourage children’s creativity, increase student achievement, and promote the arts in your home, your school, and your community
More than half a million students participate in the Reflections Program through their local PTAs each year—and their works are recognized at the local, council, regional, state, and national levels.
The Reflections Theme for the 2016-2017 school year is:
“What is Your Story?”
Students may submit an entry in any of the following six arts areas:
- Dance Choreography

All entries are due: Wednesday, October 19, 2016
