Helping our children explore their thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, and find a love of learning
This year will test our capability to be flexible and patient. Maryland 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. 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.

The Maryland PTA 2020-2021 Reflections Handbook and appendices provide the information local leaders need to implement the Reflections program in a Maryland local. This information is your guide to running a successful Reflections Program here in Maryland. Please share this information with your local units and others interested in learning more about the Reflections Program. Please also be in touch with your Council PTA as applicable. Councils will give specific guidance on how the Reflections program is implemented in your county.
