  • Reflections: Reflections is the National PTA arts program that allows students to showcase their creativity in six different arts categories: Literature, Musical Composition, Dance Choreography, Photography, Visual Arts, and Film/Video Production. This year’s theme is “The Magic of a Moment” and all projects should center around that theme.
  • SPARK (Special Education Parents Accessing Resources and Knowledge):
    SPARK meetings are designed to give parents information to help them in their current and future steps of the journey of parenting children with unique needs. At SPARK we realize the importance of providing:

    • Relevant programs and resources related to special education
    • Opportunities to network, receive support and help
    • Connections for parents with outside sources

    The above are primarily accomplished at the district level through evening programs with outside speakers. We have SPARK representatives at each school who are a local contact and resource to the individual schools.We also have an online support group. For more information click on the SPARK link at the District 15 website,
