Reflections

After 50+ years, Reflections, a National PTA arts recognition program, continues to provide students an opportunity to explore their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas while they develop artistic literacy. This year's theme is "I Will Change the World By..."

Our Bailey’s students demonstrated their creativity, passion and perspective as they explored this theme year. We are thrilled with the amazing showing we had with 105 students entering the Reflections contest. Congratulations to all our student artists who took advantage of this opportunity to express themselves. You will change the world!

Reflections includes six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Bailey’s elementary students participate in one of the two divisions: primary division (preK-2nd grade) or intermediate division (3rd-5th grade). Finally, each category and division include the following three awards: Outstanding Interpretation (1st place), Award of Excellence (2nd place), and Merit Award (3rd place).
