PTA Reflections Program for the ArtsReflections Theme 2019-2020

For 50 years, National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. The theme for the 2019-2020 program year is Look Within. Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. The entry deadline for school level submissions will be announced once school begins. Meanwhile, choose your medium and start your project!

Student winners from the local level have the opportunity to move up through their district, region, council, and state PTA programs to the national level. National Reflections winners are celebrated annually at National PTA’s Convention & Expo in June. For more information, please see the Virginia PTA Reflections webpage or the National PTA Reflections webpage.

PTSA Spring Spider Dance

Thanks to the planning and efforts of our PTSA board and members and to the many teacher chaperones students had a wonderful time at the spring dance!


The PTSA celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week with a dessert table, with a “grab and go” breakfast, and with raffles for gift cards! JBMS teachers felt the love!
