2017-2018 eflections Recognition
We would like to recognize the following Wolftrap Elementary School students who participated in this year's National PTA Reflections Art Contest. Reflections is an optional program which encourages students to explore the arts and express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Since it was founded in 1969, millions of students across the United States have benefited from this program.
Students in Kindergarten through grade 12 create theme-based artwork in dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography or visual arts. There is also a special artist category for children with special needs. Artworks interpret a different theme each year and this year's theme was "Within Reach". The children below along with their families are invited to attend a Gallery Night Reception, Awards Ceremony, and Family Ice Cream Social which will be held in the Wolftrap cafeteria from 7:00pm-8:30pm on Tuesday, April 17th. We hope that more students will participate in this fun program next year. The 2018-2019 theme is "Heroes Around Me" and entries will be due at the end of October 2018.

What is the PTA Reflections Program? Why should my child try it?
What is Reflections?
- Reflections is an arts program sponsored by the national PTA.
- Students enter original works in one or more of these categories but only one piece of artwork per category is accepted: Visual arts (painting, drawing, collage,etc.), music composition, literature, dance choreography, photography, or film, plus a special artist category for students with special needs.
- Artworks interpret a different theme each year.
- Works that best interpret the theme may go on to county, district, state and national competitions. Every child that enters is invited to the Reflections reception in the spring where all of the children are honored for their work and awards are presented.
Reflections involves awards, but the real focus is simply on getting children interested and involved in the arts. BEFORE your child begins creating their entry, please read the rules –see below.
Please visit the following link, the VA PTA website, for more information about Reflections - click on “Student Entry Form” which will need to be included with the artwork. We will have a box setup in the main office at Wolftrap for the kids to drop off their work.
