Let’s Get Started!!!

The Reflections Program allows our students to express themselves through their gifts & talents in the ARTS!!  Each year Maryland students participate in Reflections and produce amazing entries in all six Reflections arts areas.  We are so pleased you have chosen to run this program in your PTA/PTSA and wish your students the best of inspiration and dedication in producing this year’s winning entries.  Any questions can be emailed to the HCCPTA Reflections Chair. This year’s theme is “I Will Change the World By…”

A word about the COVID 19 pandemic:  This year will test our capability to be flexible and patient.  Free State PTA, your Council PTA, and your local will all be striving to present opportunities to students.  For Reflections, we may need to get innovative about how we handle art.  We may need to run the program as completely electronically as possible.  More guidance will follow as we get into the fall and we heed any new guidance from the State of Maryland and Harford County.  So, for students and chairs, plan to make your art available electronically for judging and promoting to the next level of competition.  May we all stay healthy and safe as we move through these challenging times.

To begin, register here.  After registering your PTA, look at the information provided through National PTA.  Please note that the National PTA information is general information, but none of the documents are customized for the Free State PTA Reflections program.  All information on the Free State PTA Reflections Program is available in the links below.

The Free State PTA 2021-2022 Reflections Handbook and appendices will be made available through the Free State PTA website this Fall which provides the information local and Council leaders need to implement the Reflections program in Maryland.  Please also be in touch with HCCPTA to identify your local Reflections chair.  Enclosed here is HCCPTA specific guidance on how the Reflections program is implemented in Harford county.

NOTE:  At a minimum, each local most assure that local bylaws are up to date, dues have been paid to council, state, and National, and insurance has been paid.
