Reflection Art Competition is a WA state PTA and National PTA program that starts at school level and is one of the key programs sponsored by SES PTSA. Each year students are invited to create original works of art around a theme. Each piece is evaluated by a local artist and/or art educators. Top scoring works advance to the district level with the opportunity to advance to the state and even national level.
The theme for the 2023-24 is I am Hopeful! All students are invited to submit work on this theme within 6 art categories. Entries must be original work of one student and it must be created for this year’s competition. Please look over the rules for the requirements, or it will not advance to the next level. Submissions with completed entry forms can be turned in online by November 30th 2023.
Remember: The theme matters! Judges will use the artist statement to take into account how the artist has interpreted the theme.
Special Artist Division: Students with disabilities may receive special accommodations by entering the special artist division and are encouraged to enter any category of their choice.
While the primary focus of Reflections is a celebration of creativity through positive recognition, finalists from local PTAs will move on to their council PTA (if applicable), then finalists from councils will move on to the state round. Washington State PTA finalists who receive an “Outstanding Interpretation” award will advance to the National PTA round.
Reflections entries will be submitted digitally again this year. If an entry moves on to the National level a physical entry may be needed, so please keep them!
Entries will also be displayed on the bulletin board in school.
ENTRY SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 30, 2023.

Room Parents play a key role in connecting families with their class and the SES community. They help the teacher coordinate classroom events and parties and help support the teacher. Room Parents are also periodically asked to assist the PTSA with event communications and teacher appreciation activities.
