What is the PTA Reflections Program? The National PTA Reflections program is an annual recognition program to support arts learning and celebrate student success in the arts. During the early part of the school year, Oakview students were invited to reflect on the 2017-2018 theme, "Within Reach" and create original works of art. Categories are dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students were also asked to write an artist statement and submit as many number of entries in all categories.

All participants will be invited to a celebratory breakfast in April 2018. Please stay tuned for details. Thank you for all your hard work. We hope to see your submissions for next school year.

Congratulations to the Oakview's Science Fair Winners
