Castle Hills Reflections 18/19
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.
“With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than
competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.” -Texas PTA
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.
