Reflections Art Program

The arts—and the National PTA Reflections program—support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in your school community. Celebrate arts learning in your school community with Reflections.

National PTA Reflections welcomes all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

Health & Safety Program

The Healthy Lifestyles program provides family-centered education and tools that connect parents with schools and advocate for healthy changes in nutrition and physical activity.

In a healthy school:

  • All foods, beverages and snacks sold or served meet National School Nutrition Standards.
  • All students have opportunities to be physically active on a regular basis.
  • All students have access to regular physical education.
  • Districtwide wellness policies are developed, implemented and evaluated with input from students, parents, staff and interested community members.
