There are many educational programs at Reed that are supported and paid for by the PTA. These programs are run by our wonderful parent volunteers. If you are interested in helping out please email



The National PTA Reflections Program is an art contest for children. It provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art.

Reflections is open to all Reed students (Preschool – 5th Grade). Projects are done at home and winning entries move on to the 6th District PTA for judging, then to the CA State PTA and finally to the National PTA.

More information can be found on the California State PTA website

Art Vistas Program

Art Vistas is an art appreciation program. Parent volunteers, called docents, go into the classroom about 6 times a year with “mini-exhibits” of great art works and conduct easy to understand discussions with the students on various art topics. This is followed by a hands-on lesson that provides unique and creative opportunities. The students will use a wide variety of art materials and learn about different techniques in each of these lessons. In May, there is a fantastic Art Show displaying over 500 pieces of art – one for every Reed student!
