Welcome to the SCCPTA Reflections Program!
The theme for the 2023-2024 program year is I am Hopeful Because!
Hint: Remember 40% of their mark, when judging is performed, is awarded based on how the artists statement about how their artwork ties to the theme, make sure you help your students work just as hard on their statement as they did creating their artwork.
All students attending PTA schools* sponsoring the program are invited to participate.
Students should submit their completed works of art in one, more or all of the available arts categories:
- Dance Choreography
- Film Production
- Music Composition
- Visual Arts
Todos los estudiantes que asisten a las escuelas de la PTA que patrocinan el programa están invitados a participar y enviar obras de arte originales en una de las seis áreas:
- Coreografía de danza
- Produccion de pelicula
- Composición musical
- Artes visuales
First before anything else:
Register your PTA at the National level for Reflections for 2023-2024: https://www.pta.org/home/programs/reflections. You will not get a confirmation email.
Registre su PTA en el Programa de Reflexiones de la PTA Nacional 2023-2024. Tenga en cuenta: no recibirá una confirmación.
Hint: Sign up for all categories even if you don't think that you will get entries in some of them.
Theme Search Contest
The Reflections Program selects the theme each year from entries into this contest, our current theme was the winner from 2 years ago, we have next years theme already so this contest is for 2025 - 2026 school year
The page translates into many different languages so will be accessible to the vast majority of our ESOL students and families.
Hint: please encourage the student to review past themes at the site so that they do not enter one that has already been used.
