Cultural Assembly – Dancing Storytellers: Indian Mythology and Me

In December, Washington students enjoyed the production “Dancing Storytellers: Indian Mythology and Me.” This was an enormously entertaining and sophisticated show that weaved rhythm song, gesture and facial expression into a dynamic exploration of Indian mythology and it’s connection to the world today.

Cultural assemblies like these are made possible by funds raised by PTA. Thank you for your continued support.

Reflections 2016


The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students. The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme, while increasing community awareness on the importance of the arts in education.

The Reflections Program was established in 1969 by National PTA board member Mary Lou Anderson. Since that time, more than 10 million students have participated in the program. The program’s longevity and participation figures attest to its strength. The excitement and enthusiasm that the program generates for children, parents, schools and communities is unmatched.

Participation and appreciation for the arts is the Reflections Program’s goal. Although the Reflections Program follows a “contest” format, winning should not be the emphasis.

Participation in the Reflections Program is a great way for students to explore and learn about various art forms. Creating art is a valuable learning process that challenges students to use their critical thinking skills as well as their creative talents to create art that supports a specific theme.

Students may submit an entry in any of the six arts areas listed below. Only original works of art are accepted. Depending on local PTA guidelines, students may enter more than one work of art. The six arts areas are as follows:

Literature, Musical composition, Photography, Visual arts, Dance Choreography, Film/Video Production
