2020 Theme:

I Matter Because…
The annual Reflections theme is created by a student and selected
two years in advance through the National PTA’s annual theme search
contest. This year’s theme was submitted by a then 1st grader, Rylee
Stier, who drew inspiration from her town being impacted by the
California wildfires of 2018.

View National PTA’s special message related to this year’s theme at pta.org/home/programs/reflections.
