2020-2021 Local Leader Resources

NEW!! As many school communities will be learning remotely, National PTA supports and encourages our PTAs to run their Reflections programs virtually. In our new Virtual Reflections resource, you can find tips, sourced from PTAs across the country, on how to host a virtual Reflections program. Please note: National PTA will accept virtual entries and typed signatures on the Student Entry Forms from our State PTAs.

Make sure to review the Local Leader's Guide (en español) which provides an overview of the steps necessary to host a program at your school. You'll also find helpful tools to recruit and train volunteers, as well as plan educational activities and family celebrations. 

Check with your State PTA to receive specific state guidelines, rules, and deadlines.
 
Use the following resources in addition to the those provided by your State PTA! 

NEW!! Check out these Reflections At-Home Activities you can do with the whole family. Share these with families in your school community to help inspire them to create!

Coming Soon! - Local leader training webinar

The Reflections Program provides an excellent opportunity for students of all ages to:

  • Unleash their creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the joy and fun of making art
  • Tap into critical thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art

As you know, Reflections has gone electronic. Don't panic! Here are the short cut instructions for all the categories and divisions. These instructuctions come from the State Reflections Chairman.   Please forward them on to your Reflections Chair.  We need to get them to the Unit Reflections Chairs.  We do not want to turn any child away or discourage them from entering so, please do what you need to do to get it done. I am not going to turn any entry away, but it would really help all entries delivered to Thirty-Third District are in the proper order.
 
Just remember to try and get them in electronic condition. Next, remember to use the 8.5 x 11 inch manilla envelope with the clasp. Everything should be in an envelope except for the Art and some Photography, but the envelope should be attached securely to the back.

 
Thank you and have a great Reflection Season.

Reflections Chairman, Thirty-Third District PTA

The rules, entry forms, etc are available on the National PTA website, and they are posted here.
