Congratulations, REFLECTIONS Participants and Winners!

 

Congratulations to our 2018-19 OES Reflections Participants and Winners!!!

For 50 years, National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students 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 in school and in life.

Congratulations to the Oakton Elementary School Students who shared their artistic skills, creative vision and unique interpretation by participating in the 2018-19 Reflections Program!  The theme for this year’s Reflections competition was “Heroes Around Me.”
