The 2020-2021 theme is “I Matter Because…” To start a program, review the resources below, then contact your Council or Region Director to register your PTA and get answers for any questions or assistance.
PTA REFLECTIONS CULTURAL ARTS PROGRAM!
The goal of the PTA Arts in Education programming is to be a resource for PTA leaders in partnering with schools to provide opportunities for all students to explore and be involved in the arts.
The arts—and the National PTA Reflections program —support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in your school community. When PTAs and schools work together to support arts education, they:
- Encourage all students—despite individual challenges—to explore ideas, express their individuality and support their peers in a positive way;
- Provide all students with an academic advantage by increasing student engagement and teacher effectiveness, which leads to increased school attendance rates and social connectedness among students; and
- Enhance family engagement by connecting families and schools to one another and to their communities.
