Reflections Program Levels

Reflections is a nation-wide arts appreciation and recognition program for students sponsored by National PTA.

Student Reflections' entries at a school are first recognized, judged and celebrated by the local PTA unit.

Some selected unit entries are then chosen to move from the school to the council level, where select entries from all Pleasanton PTA schools will be showcased at the Firehouse Arts Center on December 3, 2018.

Some entries are then chosen to move to the district (Alameda County) level, then state and finally at the National level.
