PTA Reflections Awardees at State, Advance to Nationals

Reflections Logo

Pleasant Valley made some serious waves in the state PTA Reflections Contest.  Of the 21 categories, a PV student placed first in 19 of them!  In many categories, we swept the top three places!  Congratulations to our artists!  Those who placed first in their category will go onto the National PTA Reflections judging!

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme for the PTA Reflections Contest. This 50+ year-old program helps them 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 in school and in life.
