Within Reach

2017-2018 National PTA Reflections®

Central Elementary PTA is pleased to have a dedicated group of parents leading our participation in Reflections 2017-2018.  Words of thanks are extended to LeighAnn McCoy, Alex Slaydon, Karen Stanley, and Greer Stene or taking charge. 

This year’s theme is Within Reach.  Entries are due to the Reflections Committee by November 21, 2017.  Central families should expect to receive more information in the coming weeks.  Check those Tuesday folders, please!  Also, our Reflections Committee plans to host a Family Art Night at Central, so students can make progress on their original art works.


What is Reflections?  A program directed by the National PTA to encourage creativity and instill an appreciation for art, in its many forms, at school and at home.  Students in elementary through high school are invited to submit original art that speaks to a common theme.  The original art may be a choreographed dance, photograph, musical composition, short film, written composition, or other visual art.  Each piece of original art is accompanied by the artists’ statement which answers:

  • How does the art entry relate to the theme?
  • What is the artist’s personal connection to the theme?
  • What did the artist use to create his/her work (e.g. supplies, technology, instrumentation, props, etc.)?
  • What/Who was the artist’s inspiration?


Artists may be considered for awards and prizes at the local, regional, state and national levels.
