“What is Your Story?”
The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for Pre-K- 12th grade students. It offers these students opportunities to express themselves creatively in six different art categories and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme. Please see student rules and forms below.
Each student will need a required Student Entry Form for each piece submitted to their school, a copy of the General Rules, and a copy of the Art Specific Rules for each art category they plan to participate in.

The Artists-in-Schools (AIS) Program is a partnership between the United Arts Council of Raleigh & Wake County, the Wake County Public School System, and area schools. The HES PTA knows that students excel when exposed to the arts and dedicates funding, with the help from UAC grants, to bring these programs to HES students. Art education projects underscore the critical role the arts play in the students’ development of creativity, overall well-being and academic achievement. The Artists-in-Schools program connects students with professional teaching artists and provides a unique opportunity for students to learn and create art with direct support from professional and working artists.
