Sponsored by the National PTA, "Reflections" is an annual theme-based competition taking place in the fall of each academic year. It's an opportunity for students to showcase their talents outside of the classroom in one or more of six categories: dance, film, literature, music, photography, and visual arts. Winners at the local level proceed to the county level the following January and may advance to state and national levels (scholarship and travel opportunities abound at this level). The "ARTS" are identified as a core academic subject by the No Child Left Behind Act. Literally, "Arts make you smart" is a reality! And the arts are fun.
Reflections 2016-2017 theme: “What Is Your Story?” I hope everyone is excited to have the kiddo's participate in the the Reflections program, this program is available for all the students and is sponsored by the Prospect Valley PTA. Last year we had a wonderful turn out with a great variety of exceptional art and we would like to encourage more kids to participate in the program especially grades 4-6. More information will be coming out in the Monday folders.
