Reflections is a National PTA and Washington State PTA arts recognition program that helps all students in grades Pre-K through 12th explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life.
The theme for the 2021-2022 program year is I Will Change The World By… Students submit their completed works of art in one, or all, of the available art categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts.
While the primary focus of Reflections is a celebration of creativity through positive recognition, finalists from local PTAs will move on to their council PTA (if applicable), then finalists from councils will move on to the state round. Washington State PTA finalists who receive an “Outstanding Interpretation” award will advance to the National PTA round. National PTA Reflections awards can be found here.
Reflections entries will be submitted digitally again this year. If an entry moves on to the National level a physical entry may be needed, so please keep them!
ENTRY SUBMISSION DEADLINE: December 7.

Art Education Program
Did you know that the art program at Snoqualmie Elementary is primarily funded by the PTSA? Thank you to all the families who participate in our fundraising efforts and allow students to receive 5 art lessons a year!
Smart With Art, in partnership with the SES PTSA, will work together for the 2022-2023 school year to bring visual arts education to the young artists at Snoqualmie Elementary.
Students are encouraged to express their own unique styles as they explore a variety of art mediums and learn about historical art movements. Each project focuses heavily on the CREATIVE PROCESS with emphasis on developing skills and understanding applicable art elements and design principles while working toward a specific objective.
Each grade level will receive 5 sessions of art covering 5 art mediums: drawing, painting, printmaking, fiber arts and metal working.
Family Fun Events
The SES PTSA plans, organizes, and runs numerous family events throughout the year! These fun events are designed to promote family and community involvement and provide a fun environment for our children to learn, grow, and develop relationships with other students. Some of these events include:
- Cougar Cub Club (pre-kindergarten meetup)
- Boo-Hoo Coffee
- Back-to-School Ice Cream Social
- Winter Bazaar
- Book Fair
- Family STEM Night
- Bingo Night
- Field Day

Room Parents play a key role in connecting families with their class and the SES community. They help the teacher coordinate classroom events and parties and help support the teacher. Room Parents are also periodically asked to assist the PTSA with event communications and teacher appreciation activities.
