Hawthorne Elementary School


Reflections "Heroes Around Me"

Reflections is the National PTA arts program that asks children to get creative! Students are invited to create works of art in any of the six different art 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 2018-2019 school year is  “Heroes Around Me".


PTA Reflections welcomes students of all grades and all abilities explore their inner artist.  Students can create as many projects as they like, in as many arts categories as they like. Projects advance through a judging system through district, region, state and national levels of the program.


Our artists have been very successful over the past few years.  Last year we had over 100 students participate.  Elmhurst had 42 entries advance to the Regional level, 15 advanced to the State, 7 received awards at STAT and one entry advanced to the National level.


Hawthorne Elementary has three grade divisions: K - 2nd, 3rd - 5th and Special Artist. Please contact Libby Hoppe with any other questions. 


Visit the PTA Locker for the entry form and more information about the Reflections program including the rules by category.


All submissions are due to the Hawthorne Office no later than TBD date in November.
