Anything is possible when you...

   The 1999-2000 theme for the Northshore School District PTA's Reflections was "Anything Is Possible," which has been interpreted by students through visual arts, photography, literature, and music. Over 200 works of art, 90 photographs, 180 pieces of literature, and 50 musical compositions are included in the exhibit at Ricketts Auditorium.

   Reflections is a national and Washington State PTA cultural arts program. The purpose of this program is to encourage students to use their creative talents to explore their thoughts and feelings about the current year's theme. Following an awards ceremony at the end of the month, the winning entries will advance to the state-level competition.
