September 2020 – Spotlight on the Arts

September 2020 Monthly Focus: Spotlight on the Arts

Even in this new world of distance learning, schools must provide students with a full curriculum — and a full curriculum includes the arts. California law specifies that the arts should include instruction (in grades 1-6) or courses (in grades 7-12) in four disciplines: dance, drama and theater, music, and visual arts.

Fall is Reflections season!  Take this opportunity to share with our families what exactly this PTA arts program is, how to enter, and the benefits of participation.  Also this can be a great springboard to encourage your school families to advocate for more arts programming at your school. 

We’ve developed a series of posts and images that you can use around the September theme: Spotlight on the Arts.  Use of the California State PTA Social Media kit is optional and fully customizable, so we hope you will find it useful.

PTA Reflections connects students to the arts, from selecting the theme to creating the artwork.  This year’s theme “I matter because” was suggested by California student Rylee, from Burney Elementary School PTA!  Two years ago she won the theme contest– which your student can enter any time between September 1st and November 1st. https://capta.org/programs-events/reflections/theme-search/

The arts are critical to our students, especially during this time of uncertainty. Studies show how arts education not only decreases feelings of anxiety and depression but also improves all-around academic performance. Advocate for more arts in your school.

For over 50 years National PTA’s Reflections program has provided opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life. Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme.
