Our membership in the Virginia PTA provides our students with the opportunity to participate in the National PTA Reflections program, which encourages students to explore the arts and express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Since it was founded in 1969 by Mary Lou Anderson, millions of students have benefited from this program.

Patrick Henry students in Pre-K through 5th grade are invited to create theme-based artwork in dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography or visual arts.
