Whether your PTA is a well oiled machine or this is your first year, PTA is here to help. 



In addition to a truly dedicated member board your Minnesota PTA has a number of sponsors that better enable us to fight for all children.  We thank McDonald’s for being a proud sponsor of your Minnesota PTA.

Dear Reflections Chairs and PTA Local Unit Board Members 

Our 2015 PTA Reflections program is over and was successful and fun, but I wanted to highlight a few things as a wrap-up.  First, there were FIVE national winners this year from Minnesota, including an Outstanding Interpretation award winner (Madison Duellman, Winona Senior High, Dance Choreography,  who will receive an all-expense trip to the national convention!)  This was a GREAT year for Minnesota Reflections!!  See the detailed national winners list on  Congratulations to all state AND national winners.  Hopefully everyone can celebrate [or have celebrated] their state and national winners at their school end-of-year awards ceremonies, if possible.  Please let me know if you need help with that.  Second, thanks to all schools who participated.  Next year, we hope to have more participation and continued process improvement to make things as easy as possible for our local units.  Emails are important to get information to you and your families, so we will focus on making sure we have good and accurate (legible!) emails on file from all units and entrants.  Your comments are always welcome! 

Again, this year’s Reflections was fantastic and we are looking forward to next year.  Make sure everyone goes to our mnpta website to see pictures of this year’s event.  Please let your Reflections state winners know about this.  There are some great photographs!  Thanks for all you do for K-12 cultural arts appreciation in our wonderful Reflections program!!

Have a great summer, and see you next year—  the theme for 2016 is “Let Your Imagination Fly!”

Thank you to all who attended the 2015 Minnesota PTA Convention and Reflections Awards Program.

For those who attended this convention and or the Reflections Award program it is safe to say that this was one of our best events ever.  Our keynote speaker was National PTA Board of Directors member Susan Lipman.  If that was not enough National PTA Service Representative Deb Fritz led two tremendous workshops.  We were also so honored to be visited by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton.  We informed and energized conference attendees from across the state.  We also celebrated the creativity of our Reflections Award winners.  Special thanks goes out to the MNPTA Board of Directors, Convention Committee and Reflections Committee members.

Your Minnesota PTA partnered with Barnes and Noble at the Mall of America to hold a book-fair during the Parent Expo but we would like to share with you something very cool that happened.
