Program Info:
Reflections is a National PTA sponsored arts recognition program that encourages artistic expression. The Reflections theme for 2021-2022 is  “I Will Change The World By...”.  Students are challenged to use their imagination to create a film, song, artwork, photograph, poem, short story or dance routine.  Students can enter as many times as they would like in as many categories as they would like.  


Arbor Creek has a wide array of talented students!  We hope to see high participation in the program this year.  An ACMS Arts Show and Celebration is being planned for late October for everyone to showcase their entries!

  Texas PTA has made Reflections a member benefit.  At least one person from the student’s primary household must be a current member of their local PTA no later than TBD.  If you are unsure if you are a member or need financial assistance, please contact ACMS PTA Membership at or click to join now.  Memberships need to be renewed each year beginning in August.
