Announcing the Reflections Program at Dirksen

This fall, Dirksen is participating in the Reflections program, which was started by the National PTA in 1969 to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Dirksen students are invited to submit an original work of art by October 30 to the Dirksen main office in the following six categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts.

Students can enter as many projects as they would like, in as many categories as they would like. This year’s theme is “Within Reach.” Encourage your student to express what’s within his or her reach through this wonderful, free arts program. A copy of the entry form and rules for each category are available on the Dirksen PTA website at
