Reflections Program 2015 – 2016

Let Your Imagination Fly!”

Since its establishment in 1969 by National PTA, the Reflections Art Program has brought the arts to life for more than 10 million students across the United States.  Student works in dance choreography, music composition, film production, photography, literature, and visual arts reflecting the chosen theme are selected annually.

Thanks to the generosity of our San Francisco residents who passed Proposition C, arts education will continue to thrive in San Francisco. "Reflections" is an opportunity for our students to showcase their talents at their school and during our city wide "Reflections Reception and Gallery" on Saturday, January 23rd, where district wide winners will be announced and their artwork will be sent to the California State PTA to be displayed and awarded during our state convention.  All artwork must be judged at your school site and winning work must be submitted to the 2nd District PTA no later than December 17th.  Look for more information on under "Programs" and "Reflections" on this website or click this link to start "Reflections" at your school today!

CAPTA School Smarts Parent Engagement Program is honored as a "2015 Bright Spot" by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics!

Free to family members, School Smarts includes a campus-wide engagement event and seven-session Parent Academy where parents learn how to help support their children in school, how the school system works and how to work together to advocate for a quality education for all children that includes the arts. The program’s operating principle is one of inclusion: reaching across all parent groups and bringing them together in support of their common interest in helping children succeed.

Currently the 2nd District PTA and SFUSD Office of Family and Community Engagement are working together to bring PTA School Smarts to four SFUSD Elementary Schools during the 2015-2016 school year.

The School Smarts program is offered in six languages including English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Tagalog and Vietnamese. Because of the program’s unique focus on inclusion, it further reflects California’s diversity: Attendee data shows 61 percent Hispanic/Latino, 21 percent White/Caucasian, 13 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, and 5 percent African-American. 

“There has been notable progress in Hispanic educational achievement, and it is due to the efforts of these Bright Spots in Hispanic Education: programs and organizations working throughout the country to help Hispanic students reach their full potential,” said White House Initiative Executive Director Alejandra Ceja.
