PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program designed to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate and explore the arts based on a theme each year.

SOMS Students will compete with other middle schoolers around the nation for a chance to win The National PTAs “Award of Excellence”. Winners will be contacted if/when their artwork is selected at the Regional, State, or National level.
