Reflections Arts Program


The Reflections program is a National PTA and WSPTA cultural arts competition. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for all students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works. Winners at this school level will have their work forwarded to a competition among students from the Bellevue School District during the Bellevue PTSA Council judging.  Council winners will advance to state level.  State winners will advance to national competition.
