Heroes Around MeNational PTA Celebrates 50 Years of Reflections

The National PTA Reflections program, in its 50th year, is a wonderful way for PTA schools to encourage students to create and submit original works of art in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.  Especially at schools where art is not part of the curriculum, Reflections allows an opportunity to showcase the many talented budding artists out there!
