What Is a PTA Reflections Celebration?
The PTA Reflections Celebration is a powerful tool for encouraging students to explore and be involved in the arts. Together, school leaders and families offer positive reinforcement for participation in the National PTA Reflections program.
Parents and community leaders are welcomed into the school to discover the rich culture and artistic skills presented by student artists. An art exhibit with live student performances and an awards ceremony will showcase the importance of arts education in your school.
During the PTA Reflections Celebration, families will:
- Recognize their child’s participation and achievement in the arts.
- Discover new opportunities to stay involved in their child’s learning through the arts.
- Understand how arts programs provide necessary educational benefits and share their positive experiences with school and community leaders.
Why Is Student Recognition Important?
Celebrating student learning provides an opportunity for schools and families to connect with each other and to their community.
When PTAs and schools celebrate the arts together, all families feel welcomed into the school and are encouraged to take an active role in their child’s learning. Research shows positive recognition and engaged families attribute to higher rates of student success.
Celebration events also serve as a platform for communicating the importance of arts education in your school. Ensure school leaders, policy makers and community leaders recognize the value of learning through the arts.
