2022 - 2023 Reflections
Thank you to our IMS student artists who submitted entries for the National PTA Reflections Program 2022-2023.  Show Your Voice!

National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.

This year IM PTSA has advanced these artists to the Issaquah School District PTSA Council Reflections Program:

  • Literature: Allison Choi, Derek Byun
  • Visual Arts: Carson Moore
  • Photography: Carter Fortune

The ISD PTSA Council Reflections chairperson will be contacting those artists who are selected to advance to WSPTA Reflections in mid-December. If you have any questions about this program or your student's work of art please contact me.

Please plan to join all our ISD artists in a reception at Issaquah High School on January 20th, 2023 honoring the arts and all of our student artists. An invitation will be sent to each student participating in Reflections this year.  Everyone is welcome to come enjoy an evening celebrating ART!
