The North Coastal Council of PTA's Reflections Gala was held Nov. 29 at El Camino Creek Elementary School in Encinitas. Four school districts were represented at the event: Del Mar Union, Solana Beach, Encinitas Union and San Dieguito Union High School.
The National PTA Reflections Program provides students with the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students in preschool through grade 12 were encouraged to create and submit works of art in six areas: dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and the visual arts based on a given theme.
During the Reflections Gala, approximately 150 North Coastal Council of PTAs student artists had their art on display from their entries in the 2016-2017 National PTA Reflections Art Program based upon this year's theme: "What Is Your Story." These young artists achieved either an Award of Excellence or an Award of Merit from North Coastal Council.
