The National PTA sponsors the reflections program which allows students in all grades and of varying abilities to be involved in the arts. This year students reflected on the theme: "The World Would Be a Better Place If....." in the categories of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts. We had great support from teachers and staff and many students participated in this wonderful program.
