Reflections Look Within




Highland Middle School PTSA is excited to be participating in Reflections 2019-2020. We're calling for all Highland artists at every level to participate.

 Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life. 

Students in pre-K through grade 12 create original works of art in response to a theme. The theme for the 2019-2020 program year is Look Within. Students submit their completed works of art in one, or all, of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.

While the primary focus of Reflections is a celebration of creativity through positive recognition, finalists from local PTAs will move on to their council PTA, then finalists from councils will move on to the state round. Washington State PTA finalists who receive an “Outstanding Interpretation” award will advance to the National PTA round.

After-school art sessions are available November 5th and 12th for students submitting art projects

Highland PTSA will be hosting and providing supplies to students who would like to submit artwork to the Reflections cultural arts program. Students can join art teacher, Mr. Peterson, in Room 301 from 3:30-4:30pm on November 5th and November 12th.

Program details

Artwork and entry forms are due to Highland Middle School main office by 2:30pm on November 15, 2019. For questions, contact the Highland PTSA Reflections program chairperson at
