National PTA Reflections Program

Calling all R.H. Dana students! How will YOU change the world? You are invited to participate in this year's National PTA Reflections program, a national PTA initiative centered around the arts.

This year’s theme is “I Will Change the World By…”.

Based on this theme, students may submit original artwork including: drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, music compositions, dance choreography, and literature. Discussions will take place in class with teachers in support of this opportunity. Students may work on entries at home or during lunch in our school art studio where materials will be provided.

Entries are due by Wednesday, September 29th!

Artwork should be submitted to your child's teacher and must include the student name, your contact information (including telephone and email address), teacher name and school on the back of the entry.

For inspiration, check out last year's California State PTA Reflections Art Program award recipients:

According to the California PTA website, the Reflections Art Program has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. The goal is to increase community awareness of the importance of arts in education by encouraging students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired

  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork

  • Experience the fun and joy of making art

  • Tap into critical thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme

  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

Let's go Whales! We can't wait to see your inspiring artwork and see how you will change the world!
