Reflections - What Is Your Story?

Attention all artists and creative people!




CPHS PTSA is excited to introduce the theme for the 2018-19 CA PTA Reflections Art Program (bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969.)

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.


All students attending CPHS are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

  • Dance/choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film production
  • Music composition
  • Visual arts.

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs/PTSAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs/PTSAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round. You may refer to the California State PTA Website for more information and entry guidelines.

Entries will be due FRIDAY Oct. 26, 2018. Submit entries to the Reflections Box in Student Services South.

Please email Lesley Pope or call (415) 699-5174 with any questions.
