About Reflections:

Reflections is a National PTA sponsored arts recognition program that encourages artistic expression. The Reflections theme for 2018-2019 is “Heroes Around Me.” Students are challenged to use their imagination to create a film, song, artwork, photograph, poem, short story or dance routine. Students can enter as many times as they would like in as many categories as they would like. 


Last year Castle Hills Elementary had 22 entries advance to the district level and 3 entries advance to state. While these numbers are exciting, the emphasis is on self expression through fine arts.

Texas PTA has made Reflections a member benefit. At least one person from the students primary household must be a current member of their local PTA.


Participants will receive a certificate and ribbon at the Cultural and World of Art PTA Meeting in January and a Dragon Awards pin at the end of the year.

Dance Choreography - Original dance choreographed by the student.


Film Production - Original work of fiction or non-fiction in animation, narrative,
