The National PTA Reflections program encourages students of all ages and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Through the program, National PTA at CHAMPS Charter High School of The Arts through PTSA and PTA’s across the country urge students in preschool through grade 12 to create and submit original works of art in the medium of their choice— dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts — reflecting on a specific theme. There also is a special artist division option for students with disabilities to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate in the program. Students are recognized each year for their artistic ingenuity to bring the theme to life in a way that is personal and meaningful.


CHAMPS Charter High School of the Arts PTSA will present work during an awards ceremony date to be announced.  .  


Founded in 1969, the National PTA Reflections engages nearly 300,000 students and their families in arts education activities each year—encouraging students to explore the arts for fun and recognition. For more information about the program, visit
