Your PTA & PTSA is invited to join the Orange County Council of PTA & PTSA in participation in the National PTA Reflections 2013 -2014 Program.
The Reflections program encourages children to express themselves artistically based on a common theme. This year’s theme is “Believe, Dream, Inspire”.
Participation in the PTA Reflections Program can help your PTA & PTSA increase student achievement, foster student talents, promote the arts, and increase parent involvement in your school and PTA.
There are 5 competitive Divisions:
- Primary Division Pre-K – 2nd Grade
- Intermediate Division 3rd Grade – 5th Grade
- Middle Division 6rh Grade – 8th Grade
- High School Division 9th Grade – 12th Grade
- Special Artist Division Ungraded for children of all ages with disabilities
Within each Division, there are 6 art categories:
- Visual Arts
- Dance Choreography
- Musical Composition
- Film Production
Your PTA & PTSA can summit 3 entries per art category per competitive division to OCCPTA.
Your PTA Unit’s winning entries are due to the Orange County Council of PTA on Wednesday, December 4, 2013 by 5:00 PM, Ronald Blocker Educational Learning Center, 445 W. Amelia Street Orlando, FL 32801.
- Orange County Council PTA & PTSA: December 4, 2013
- Florida State PTA: January 13, 2014
We recommend you set the entry due date for your students 2 – 4 weeks prior to the OCCPTA Reflections Entry Due Date to allow your PTA time to process your students’ entries, judge the submissions, and deliver the winning entries to OCCPTA prior to the deadline.
You are encouraged to recognize and celebrate each student who participates in your PTA Unit’s Reflections Program.
Now is the time to plan your Reflections participation and to partner with your school to promote student participation in Reflections.
National PTA, Florida PTA. and Orange County Council of PTA are all working to get the 2013 – 2014 Reflections Guidelines posted on their respective websites. To receive an email copy of the Reflections guidelines, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
It is all about the children,
