Why Reflections?
Reflections is so much more than “just an art contest.”  It helps kids take risks, be inspired, think creatively, receive positive recognition, and be celebrated for their works of art.  It also allows our community to celebrate creativity in our students! Studies have shown there is a relationship between the arts and health and well-being across one’s lifespan.  Thank you for encouraging art by doing Reflections at your PTA! 

Submissions are due November 19th, 2021.

This year, like everything else, Reflections is going all-digital. Please read on for details. Questions, contact Danielle Dolbec at
