‘Within Reach’ is new Reflections theme

Reflections is the National PTA arts program that asks children to get creative! Students are invited to create works of art in any of six different arts categories, reflecting upon a different theme each year. The six arts categories are dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. The theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “Within Reach.”

Eisenhower student advances to state level of PTA Reflections program

Seventh-grader Vineeth’s film production project, Special FX Mania, will advance to the state level of PTA Reflections.

Vineeth is one of seven in the Film Production category and 40 students from District 54 that will advance to the state level.

Reflections is a PTA writing and fine arts competition. The theme of the 2016-17 Reflections program was “What Is Your Story?” District 54 students were able to submit an entry in any of the following six arts areas: film production, dance choreography, literature, musical composition, photography and visual arts.

There will be a reception honoring the Reflections students from PTA District 37 (which includes School District 54) on March 14.

Congratulations and good luck to Vineeth!
