2020-2021 reflections

The Reflections theme for the 2020-2021 school year is (drumroll, please!):

"I Matter Because...."

 

What a perfect theme for this year. We all matter. Our kids matter. We know they do. Now, they can use this opportunity to show us why they do through words, photography, music, dance, film and visual arts.

 

We'd love to encourage each campus, and every teacher to incorporate this theme in your lesson planning. From social studies essays to music composition.. there's so many great ways our kids can express themselves. And we appreciate all help showcasing their talents.

The search is on for a future National PTA Reflections theme!

The Reflections theme changes every year, and we need your students’ suggestions! Each state selects five student theme suggestions to advance to national-level judging. National PTA then selects one exceptional theme to inspire creativity for the following year’s PTA Reflections program. The student winner will receive $100 and recognition at the Annual National PTA Convention!
